Lady Gaga Dares to Bare at the CFDA Awards

We’re used to seeing Lady Gaga without pants, flashing skin and pushing fashion boundaries, but at the CFDA Awards in New York City Monday night, the singer nearly bared it all. Walking the red carpet at Lincoln Center’s Alice Tully Hall, Gaga — who received the Fashion Icon Award — seriously turned heads in a colorful bob, black bustier, sheer bodysuit and 10-inch black platforms. “You heard the fans screaming,” Kathy Griffin told PEOPLE. “The moment she showed up … the monsters [had] their claws out. I stopped dead in my tracks.” To accept her award, Gaga removed her Mugler skirt, leaving her in the sheer bodysuit, which got a bit X-rated as it slipped down (and left nothing to the imagination from the back). Nonetheless, the singer entertained the crowd with her tales of Vogue editor Anna Wintour. “When I was told I won this award, Anna Wintour sent me a text message. She text messages,” she deadpanned. “It said, ‘We’re so excited to tell you that you won a CFDA Fashion Icon Award.'” Thinking she’d received a text from a friend named Anna — “I have a couple of Annas in my phone,” she admitted — Gaga wrote back as a friend would. “My reply was, ‘Yes bitch, we did it!'” she recalled. “Quite quickly, I got a reply that said, ‘How lovely. And we will all be waiting to see what you will wear.’ And I thought, ‘Well, won’t you help me choose what I will wear?’ And then I said, ‘Oh …. Ack. It’s Anna Wintour.'” Gaga later stripped down further during an after-party at the Standard Hotel, covering the bare essentials with black pasties, a sheer suit and a spike-adorned thong.
