While all eyes were on the glamorous gowns on the red carpet outside of the Metropolitan Museum of Art on Monday night, inside the Costume Institute Gala, it was all about Lady Gaga who stole the show in sheer crystal catsuit. Skipping the red carpet so she could prepare for her mini-concert, Gaga performed four songs in front of a New York City-themed backdrop–while clad in a crystal-encrusted catsuit by Giorgio Armani (who notably designed her Grammys ensembles). The ensemble and the show had the star-studded audience tweeting away: “GaGa singing beautifully at Met Ball. (she’s not the lamp post – underneath on the piano),” joked Jimmy Fallon, while Cash Warren, there with wife Jessica Alba raved about her performance. “Jess and I are front row center. Insane! She’s amazing,” Warren Tweeted, adding, “haven’t heard a voice that wonderful in person in a long time.” Katy Perry joined in on the Gaga lovefest, Tweeting, “I love @ladygaga She’s still cool.” Meanwhile, a Michael Kors-clad Brooke Shields told PEOPLE that the performance was one of the highlights of the night, “I love whenever I can see Lady Gaga.” —Cara Lynn Shultz

Actually, Britney did not wear a crystal encrusted catsuit- she just had crystals applied to her bare body- even better- this shown in the making of her toxic video.

She and her peeps are always complaining and saying Christina Aguilera is a copy cat of Gaga’s..
But ya..Britney did this first…so we could say the same for Gaga.
Don’t get me wrong, I love Gaga. But I love Christina too, and get annoyed when her people say she’s being a copy


I suppose almost every celebrity has to go through that. To me it just reminds me of wt Marilyn wore back then and this is more like a “Evolution”~

I think we have this established that both Lady Gaga and Britney both wore cat suits. Obviously there is something else there in order for Giorgio Armani to desgin the suit specificly for Gaga as well as the dress’ she wore at the Grammys that were amazing. I <3 Lady Gaga she rocks.

Seriously? on

Agree with PurrlGurrl. All these women are just Cher wannabes. Sad.

Love her. Wish I could see her performance.

Cher was the first person to wear that actually so get over yourself Brittany didnt come up with anything.

Forever trying to compare, forever trying to say who’s the most original. None of them really are when they all cite Madonna as an influence.

How about you ALL get over yourselves. There was life before Britney, life before Madonna, and life before Lady Gaga, and there will be when thet’re gone. So please, get real. It’s entertainment. It’s pop music. You all are taking this WAY too seriously.
