A lot can happen in just two years. To wait for the drop of Lady Gaga’s fifth studio album, during that time frame (759 days to be exact), seems like an unbearable test of patience, but one that Little Monsters were more than willing to endure. The Princess of Pop slayed the music game yet again in her long-awaited Joanne, which graces topics of all things sentimental, social, and inspirational (and is currently chillin’ at the No. 1 Album slot on the Billboard Chart). It has us reflecting on important roles of friendship, freedom, and fearlessness in our lives. In addition to Gaga's renown fandom conceived by her vocals, she has also formed an immense following due to her extraordinary sense of style—deemed all things beautiful, bizarre, and simply riveting.
To honor the passionate divergence of Joanne and Gaga's reputable wardrobe wisdom, we’ve collected a melody of looks that inspire us through her every new song—and, of course, give us the ultimate authority to rock the dance floor. Click through the gallery below to check 'em out.
