Whether you know her from her hit singles like Just Dance, Bad Romance or Born This Way, amongst many others, or for her avant-garde and eclectic sense of fashion (remember the meat dress made of raw beef that she wore to 2010 MTV Video Music Awards?), Stefani Joanne Angelina Germanotta is undoubtedly one of the biggest pop music sensation of our time.

One of her most iconic performances was for her song Applause from the Artpop album at the 2013 MTV Video Music Awards. Besides giving a killer performance while dancing and jumping (in heels, might we add), it was her multiple outfit changes that really caught the attention of fans. Many believe that each look she had changed into mid-performance signified a milestone in her career, and pays homage to her fans for seeing her through her many transformations.

And this constant evolution is Gaga’s greatest strength — we take a look at her best outfits thus far.
