There have been many names given to Lady Gaga but the Queen of Pop came into this world as Stefani Joanne Angelina Germanotta and became Lady Gaga around age 20 and has since rocked the world with hits such as Poker Face, Bad Romance, Telephone, Alejandro, Monster, Speechless and Just Dance.
Her tours are legendary and her appearances in shows are even more iconic. Known for her flamboyant outfits, or lack of outfit as the case may be, Lady Gaga keeps the world guessing about her upcoming personas. Past costumes have included glued on pearls, a green-sequined leotard (cut down to her belly button) with matching platform shoes, a red lace outfit that covered her from thigh to the top of her head (yet, somehow, managed to be see-through as well and ending with red spikes rising high above the top of her head), a space-age body suit and a dress made entirely out of Kermit the Frogs. More wild creations include her bubble dress, a hair dress, another hair dress, a metal dress and a see-through nun outfit. Gaga is also seen in concert in various bikinis and leotards, an outfit with conical flaming breasts and the infamous meat dress which is made out of slabs of meat with a matching headpiece and shoes. No less colorful are her headpieces which include the inkblot, a metal cage, white feathers circling her face, various lace coverings and a huge silver lobster. Lady Gaga's shoes are all equivalent to her brilliant outfits and has one wondering how she manages to walk (let alone dance) in them.
Lady Gaga's elaborate personas on tour and during performances do not stop with the clothes, shoes and headpieces. Her hairstyles and her makeup are just as fantastic and out of this world. Some of these include her famous hair bow, real coke cans rolled into her hair, huge light orange curls with bobbly-eyes, a hair disk and a hair straw hat. Makeup can include anything from sequins to pearls, to lightning bolts and teardrops.
The Queen of Shock will continue to delight fans in the New Year. Lady Gaga tour 2011 dates are listed on her official site through May 6th.

Lady Gaga has undoubtedly made a name for herself not just as a singer but also in dressing-up for arts sake. She comes up with the most outrageous outfit like the meat dress lass year.
This is why her outfits are one of the most popular costumes every year during Halloween. This year, the more tamed (certainly more tamed than the meat costume) Lady Gaga Tuxedo Costume is going to be a big hit.
What I like most about this costume, worn by Jo Calderone, Lady Gaga's other persona, is that it's so easy to make one at home.
You would obviously need a tuxedo for this Halloween costume. But remember that the main identifying characteristic of the Jo Calderone costume is the hair and the cigarette accessory.
For the hair, you need a greaser look which was a favorite male haircut in the 1950's - think Elvis Presley hair but with a lesser "poof" on the top. Instead, make the front/top part of the hair a bit messy with the help of some gel and hairspray. And keep in mind that Jo Calderone wears his hair with a little bit of sideburns too.
