Fashion Countdown: Lady Gaga’s 10 Costliest Outfits

By Louise Garay

From her pyrotechnic bras to outrageous heels to absurd wigs, there is no denying that Lady Gaga has triumphantly managed to redefine fashion again and again. In fact, many would agree if we were to say that no fashion event could ever be complete without the presence of the sensational diva. 

More than an ordinary pop star, Lady Gaga is an undeniable fashion phenomenon. Whether clad in a dress made of meat, a Muppet-covered coat or enclosed in a canopy of human hair, the superstar never fails to make it into the spotlight no matter the event and date.

As we look back in her most ‘Gaga’ looks, it’s normal to wonder which among these eye-locking outfits cost her the most. To help feed everyone else’s curiosity, we have compiled Lady Gaga’s most expensive outfits on the Red Carpet.

10. Bowie Outfit Tribute

 

Cost: $28,000+

Nearly everyone would agree that Grammy’s 2016 made its mark on the public consciousness. Not only is this the year that Taylor Swift won the Album of the Year for her 1989, but it was also the event in which Lady Gaga stole the attention of many with her incredible David Bowie tribute outfit.

Appearing with a blue, shoulder-padded Marc Jacobs embroidered suit, Gaga yet again made it into the headlines. Not only did she walked on the red carpet mimicking the late artist’s trademark blue eyeshadow and flame hair, but she also paired the suit-like dress with some Lorraine Schwartz jewels and an absurd pair of high platform heels.

Although the popstar didn’t confirm the cost of the dress, sources confirmed that it takes at least $28,000 to buy an exclusive dress from Marc Jacobs, and surely, the dress of Gaga might have taken a lot more than that to be designed and purchased.

9. Meat Dress

 

Cost: $100,000+

Nearly a decade since the 2010 MTV Video Music Awards, Lady Gaga’s iconic “meat dress” remains to be part of the fashion world. Designed by artist and fashion designer Franc Fernandez, the dress has made it into the memories of the public as a symbol of fashion, absurdity, and protest. During the event, the popstar walked on stage wearing the fleshy outfit as a form of protest against the military’s “don’t ask, don’t tell” policy.

Not only was the dress made out of raw meat that was taxidermied and preserved like beef jerky, but it was also said to have cost approximately $100,000! 

To date, the iconic meat dress now belongs to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and can be viewed at the Women Who Rock section.

8. Armani Prive Dress

 

Cost: $125,000+

Another legendary outfit that deserves to be part of our list is none other than Lady Gaga’s Armani Prive Dress, which she wore during the 2018 Grammy Awards Ceremony.
