She's known for her bizarre sense of style and retro-futuristic look - but Lady GaGa managed to outdo herself yesterday.
The Poker Face singer was spotted in Toronto in a series of increasingly outlandish outfits, as she prepared for an appearance at the Much Music Awards bash.
Proving she still hasn't lost the ability to shock, GaGa unveiled a hot-pink leotard with what looked like an inflatable collar, and a silver jumper that seemed to be a giant Brillo Pad.

That wasn't all, though. She also debuted a black-leather biker jacket with red stilettos perched inexplicably in the place of shoulder pads.
The 23-year-old, who was recently snapped canoodling with her boyfriend Speedy in Hawaii, has previously attributed her innovative sense of style to absorbing her mother’s love of fashion while growing up.
But it's not just about clothes - according to the lady herself, it's something much, much more.
'Everything that you see me do is in some way taken and inspired by these visions in my brain that happen because of the way I live my life.

'So I just live and breathe art every day, and I consider myself to be a performance artist. Every time you see me, it's performance. When I'm sleeping, it's performance,' she said recently.
GaGa, real name Stefani Joanne Angelina Germanotta, was brought up in New York, playing piano at five years old and performing in jazz clubs by her early teens.
At 20 she was writing pop songs for other stars - including Britney, New Kids on the Block and the Pussycat Dolls - before landing her own record deal.
The Just Dance singer released her third single, Paparazzi, this month.
In the video for the song, GaGa is seen in a passionate clinch with three brothers who bear an uncanny resemblance to the singer herself.

Lady GaGa has hit on a unique way to keep the sun off as temperatures soar.
While most people would wear a hat or stick to the shade, the pop star opted for an enormous hairpiece in the shape of a button.
She wore the elaborate wig while visiting a charity in Manchester, putting everyone else in the shade with her typically over-the-top look.

The 23-year-old was at Body Positive North West to help decorate a garden for people affected by HIV.
But, as is often the case, her wacky wardrobe choice took centre stage.
Swapping her microphone for a paintbrush, she made her mark by dawbing the message 'Love + Art + Kindness' on to a picture of a herself on a wall as excited volunteers looked on.

Her visit to the charity was organised by Orange RockCorps, which gives people a chance to earn tickets to gigs in exchange for four hours voluntary work.
The singer will perform in Manchester on July 13, along with The Enemy and N-Dubz, to 3,000 people who have given up their time to help at community charity projects.
It was business as usual this weekend as the Poker Face singer made her Glastonbury debut.
Performing with a live band, she wore three showstopping outfits on stage, including a buttock-skimming silver dress that seemed inspired by a disco ball.
