Did you go goo-ga over Gaga this year? Whatever your opinion on the eccentrically dressed pop star, there's no denying that she's worthy of our 2009 Sugar Award for Best Fashion Risk Taker. Who else could you imagine flaunting a red barely-there lace number and underwear as outerwear with as much confidence and pizazz? (Sorry Rihanna, your white cut-out catsuit was impressive at the American Music Awards, but maybe next year!)
The beauty of Lady Gaga is that she never seems to be out of character - you won't catch this pop star dashing out for a carton of milk in a jeans and tee get-up. Flat top shades, platform heels, short shorts and extravagant headgear all rule her world, creating a signature look that is as endearing as it is outrageous. There really isn't anyone else quite like her - please, put your hands together for the wacky and wonderful Lady Gaga!
