Lady Gaga talks about the daring dress she wore to meet the Queen

  • Lady Gaga recently spoke to British Vogue about some of her most iconic looks.
  • She said she wore red latex to meet Queen Elizabeth II in 2009 so she would look like royalty.
  • Gaga said she also chose the material so that her outfit would look modern.

Lady Gaga has worn countless bold outfits throughout her career, but there are a few that really stand out.

The multiple hyphenated star recently spoke to British Vogue about 19 of her most iconic looks, including her early fashion and controversial meat dress.

Gaga also shared the inspiration behind the unique Atsuko Kudo dress she wore to meet Queen Elizabeth II in 2009.

“I wanted to dress like a queen the British way, and I wanted to do it my way,” she told the publication.

Gaga met the Queen in Blackpool, England, on December 7, 2009, at the annual Royal Variety Performance, a TV event often attended by the British Royal Family.

“We thought we would give this look of a queen a modern twist by making it in latex, and at the time Atsuko Kudo were the only designers I could think of customizing latex this way,” Gaga continued. “It’s very difficult to custom latex.”

It wasn’t just the latex that made the dress stand out – it also had a high neckline and long sleeves that puffed above the elbows.

To complete the look, Gaga sported pointed red boots, a curly blonde haircut and a series of red crystals around each eye.

Gaga isn’t the only star to wear bold fashions around British royals. Some celebrities like Lenny Kravitz have worn denim and studs to greet members of the family, while others like Miley Cyrus have sported plunging necklines.
