Ah, Gaga! It’s hard to remember a time before meat dresses, nipple-covers-as-tops and extreme hair topiary but one lady made us a visual gift of all this and more. Yup, in her short reign as queen of crazy couture she’s managed to make de riguer looks out of packing materials, road markings and crustacea, plus taught us that dressing to the nines is for any time, anywhere! As she prepares to celebrate her 26th birthday, what better way to celebrate the one and only Stephani Germanotta than by picking her best looks? Strap in and prepare to marvel anew – it’s going to get crazy in here!

The red carpet has ever been the place to pull out all the fashion stops and what better way to trump all other contenders than by deifying yourself with a hair halo and some red lace? Lady Gaga sees your run-of-the-mill red-carpet frock and raises you one dress made entirely of oversized coffee filters. Think you're going to let loose at the after party? Beat a see-through body stocking and nipple guards for your lady bits! All a little bit bonkers for sure, but really kinda fabulous!

So fabulous that she has mega designers clammering to clothe her! Who wasn't a bit in love with her wardrobe when she betrothed it to Versace for a whole month [above centre]? Who didn't gasp at the Armani frock fest that saw her orbiting her very own satellite [above left]? And who didn't sigh in envy as she went Boadiccea-style bold in a beautiful McQueen gown at the VMAs in 2012 [above right]? Even better, so bright is her sartorial star that she has her very own creative team, Haus of Gaga (headed up by none other than fash maestro Nicola Formichetti) to cater to her every outfit whim. She wants an eggshelll incubation unit? She gets an eggshell incubation unit! It's the best dressing up box in the world and she's happy to share it with us, joy!

Queen of Quirk she may be but lest you write her off as a costume horse behold this pastel palette cleanse - all worn out and about in London! Far from her usual wackitude, this rainbow raiment is nothing short of straight-up ladylike chic. We'd love to get our hands on her stunning Roksanda Illincic colour-block beauty [above centre] topped with Philip Treacy spiral hat (hello Ascot!). That lemon sherbert Osman confection [above right]? Sweet and simple! And the juicy tangerine trousersuit [above left]? She's a girl after our own hearts!

With so many twist and turns it's impossible to guess what she'll don next (sellotape or chiffon?) but we can all agree, it's bound to be a treat!

Check out the gallery above for a rollercoaster ride of Gaga's greats and let us know if you'd give any of them a try (would you? could you?) and which ones you treasure for their (often literally) sheer chutzpah!

    Custom faux-tique electric tram aims to replace New York's horses over the neigh-sayers

    For the record, it's the year 2014. I mention that in case someone reading this story about a push to replace horses with motorized carriages thinks they've stumbled onto some archival piece by accident.

    2015 Acura TLX blends two sedans into one alphabet soup

    Nearly three decades have passed since Honda gave us the car we didn’t know we wanted: a fancified Accord called the Legend, which Honda sold under a newly created luxury brand called Acura. Acura, along with the Lexus and Infiniti brands that followed, proceeded to turn the luxury market on its nose. But since then, everyone from Hyundai to Bentley has stepped up its luxury game while Acura got a bit lost in ubiquity with a cadre of similar-looking products, all with confusing alphabet soup names like ILX, TSX, TL and RLX.

    Over 280 missing after South Korean ferry capsizes

    By Narae Kim JINDO South Korea (Reuters) - More than 280 people, many of them students from the same high school, were missing after a ferry capsized off South Korea on Wednesday, in what could be the country's biggest maritime disaster in over 20 years. It was not immediately clear why the Sewol ferry listed heavily on to its side and capsized in apparently calm conditions off South Korea's southwest coast, but some survivors spoke of a loud noise prior to the disaster.
