Lady Gaga is nominated for Best Cinematography and Best Art Direction at the 2021 VMAs, both for her stunning “911” music video. And while we hope she’ll take home a Moon Person or two, we’re especially excited to see what she’ll wear.

Since making her VMAs debut back in 2009, Mother Monster has graced us with a series of unforgettable red carpet and on-stage fashions, from 2010’s infamous meat dress to 2020’s parade of fashionable face masks. Here, take a look back at her wildest and most iconic VMAs outfits over the years.

Gaga graced the VMAs red carpet for the very first time in 2009 — one year after the release of her debut album, “The Fame” — wearing a black lace Jean Paul Gaultier gown paired with a feathered Keko Hainswheeler neckpiece and “Phantom Of the Opera”-esque gold mask.

  2010 MTV Video Music Awards - Red Carpet
2010 was a big year for Gaga at the VMAs; she was up for a whopping 13 awards, and arrived on the red carpet looking like royalty in a voluminous Alexander McQueen gown, along with the designer’s towering “Armadillo” boots and a gold feathered Philip Treacy headdress.

She accepted her Video of the Year award wearing a meat dress designed by Franc Fernandez that instantly went viral. Intended as a protest of the military’s “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” policy, the beefy creation’s since been displayed at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland — after being preserved, of course.

And the 2020 VMAs might as well have been called the GMAs. Gaga reigned supreme over the entire evening, taking home four Moon People — along with MTV’s first-ever Tricon Award — and performing a “Chromatica” medley onstage. She also made quite the splash on the red carpet, showing up in an futuristic silver Area ensemble accessorized with a space helmet.

“I was wearing face shields before it was a thing,” Gaga quipped on Instagram of her pandemic-appropriate headgear.

And to transform her metallic catsuit to take home the Tricon Award, Gaga layered on a silver Candace Cuoco jacket and Manuel Albarran bra. “I might sound like a broken record, but wear a mask. It’s a sign of respect,” she said during her acceptance speech.
