All the Epic, Showstopping Looks from Lady Gaga's 'Enigma' Residency
Andy Cohen and Anderson Cooper may have hosted the Ball Drop in New York, but the real party happened in Las Vegas, where Lady Gaga and all her Little Monsters rang in 2019 with her much-anticipated, brand-new residency, Enigma. The entire show was peak Gaga, featuring hits spanning her entire discography, from "Just Dance" to "Shallow." With a set-list of 21 of her most beloved tracks, it's truly a tribute from Gaga to her fans.
Such an occasion called for Mother Monster to reunite with long-time collaborator, Nicola Formichetti for some truly sickening looks. From a disco ball-inspired jumpsuit to a purple alien gogo piece, the show's extra-terrestrial aesthetic gave us the early Gaga we fell in love with, fine-tuned by the amazing artist she's grown to become.
Disco Ball Gaga
In classic Gaga fashion, she descended onto the stage in a mirrored jumpsuit with a black headpiece. Given her nightlife roots, it's fitting that she's channeling a disco ball at the beginning of her show, which kicked off with her star-making track, "Just Dance."
Neon Bondage Gaga
She then changed into a little black BDSM number with neon green details. The look was completed by a black PVC jacket with her initials and a some tulle detailing in the same neon green.
Gogo Alien Gaga
Her next look was a transparent purple dress that channeled a lounge singer in the year 3019 as she drinks away her futuristic sorrows backstage. Underneath was a purple cutout bodysuit that's probably featured in the alien version of Showgirls.
Heavy Metal Gaga
Things got kinda dark, but still super stunning when she came out on a mechanical spider in bejeweled armor that lit up in all the right places. It's like if Patricia Field designed costumes for a movie about a late '80s heavy metal singer.
Sickening Silhouette Gaga
The show concluded with a dramatic iridescent silhouette by Vex that gave us equal parts Bowie and The Fifth Element. It was stripped away to reveal a shimmery latex bodysuit that served nude, just-out-of-the-womb infant pop icon.
