Lady Gaga

Lady Gaga shocked us with her dressed-down look (black Prabal Gurung dress, makeup-free face) during the red carpet arrivals, but she unleashed the drama during her performance of "Applause." The diva, whose last VMAs performance was in 2011, rocked a bikini and wigs on top of wigs, which she peeled back one at a time during the show. We knew Gaga couldn't stay straightforward for long.
