The couture ensemble was designed by Gaga’s fashion friend, Thierry Mugler.
You may remember that she starred in his Paris runway show only a few months ago.
On the red carpet, celebs like Kathy Griffin and the Olsen twins stepped out to honor the 25-year-old.
A reportedly teary-eyed Mama Monster got emotional during her acceptance speech:
All of you made me feel like a star before I was…As much as this award means to me personally … I just want you to know how much this means to young Americans.
[lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Lady Gaga[/lastfm] told the captivated crowd how she furiously saved her money as a child so she could purchase vintage Mugler designs at her local thrift shop. The New York-born singer treated every Friday party like a night at the Oscars.
Staying under the radar was fellow fashion fanatic [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Kanye West[/lastfm], who attended last night’s festivities to present the international design prize.
