Lady Gaga fashion photo gallery

We like to claim things as ours here in Tampa Bay. | Lady Gaga, for one. Before she was the biggest star in the world, she performed at two Ybor City nightclubs toting a modest disco stick and rocking a homemade outfit. She returns Saturday in full bloom, this time to the St. Pete Times Forum. Her wardrobe will be much more spectacular. More bizarre. More Gaga. | "For the city of Tampa to say they have this relationship with this particular artist who comes back again at a much larger venue is huge," said Tampa fashion designer Jorge Alvarado. "We got to witness this artist grow up. We were a part of that." | She has worn a dress made of dead cow. A hat made of telephone. A bow made of hair. She has incubated on the red carpet and performed bleeding from the chest. | We asked local artists, fashion designers and creative geniuses to imagine their own designs for Gaga. Something that would top her already outrageous fashion feats. | She is ours, after all.
