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.

Cover yourself up, there’s young teenagers watching you. You’ve turned out to be an embarrassment. Very talented but now you’ve gone to far and you will lose sales because of this, trust me!

Gaga has a beautiful voice, but her style is ridiculous and vulgar. She serioulsy looks like she just escaped from a mental institutions. Not cute at all!

LOVE Mother monster, she does no wrong..

A fashion icon? In whose eyes? Certainly not in my opinion. Her mode of dress certainly is not one of moral conduct. You can have an allure of being sexy without displaying so much skin

Everything about GaGa is attention, AND I LOVE IT! She does stuff to get noticed and she stays true to herself and her fans. If you tell her to cover up, she’ll go naked. So leave her alone, and maybe if you don’t say anything she’ll go away, but that will never happen! Haha. She is who she is, and she’ll stay that way… My thought is that if you don’t like her or the way she dresses and presents herself, than look away. Rather than promote hate and bullying, which GaGa is against, just keep your mouth SHUT.

I think that Lady Gaga definetly has to cover up. There are a lot of teens and kids that like her and follow her. You don’t want your kids to be following how she dresses, although her music is okay. Also, I believe the only reason she dresses that way is to give a show to people and to get attention.
