Lady Gaga proved this evening that there's nobody better to kick off the Met Gala red carpet, especially when the theme is "camp," than her. Dressing for a theme as extra as she is, she wore not one but three dresses in the span of 10 minutes, and ended it all by stripping down into nearly nothing.

It all started off with a hot-pink dress.

The over-the-top neon Brandon Maxwell dress is the exact kind of extra we'd expect from Gaga. With a miles-long train, she was giving us serious fairy godmother vibes from the second she stepped on the carpet. What happened next, however, was completely unexpected. 

Suddenly her entourage began lifting the train of the dress in the most dramatic way possible.

Our very own Mary Poppins revealed what appeared to be another large black skirt under her dress. And while most would assume that it was simply a petticoat to maintain the shape of the larger pink dress, we knew that Gaga would never let her foot off the gas that quickly.

She quickly removed the pink dress to reveal a sleeker and more demure black ball gown.

With a corset bodice paired with a larger-than-life hoop skirt, she transformed right in front of our eyes. 

But that wasn't nearly the end.

She removed the black gown to reveal a more form-fitting, hot-pink, floor-length pencil dress with a structured bust line to discreetly reveal a sexy lace bra peeking from the top. It gave us a major 1980s Malibu Barbie flashback.

And that's when things really got interesting.

She said eff clothes altogether and stripped down into absolutely nothing but her underwear, fishnet tights, and dramatic platform boots.

She then proceeded to crawl and dance around the carpet — this marking the return of the dramatic, theater-driven Gaga we all know and love.

In what we'll call a theatric striptease, Gaga gave us all the sex and seduction we could handle, and the red carpet had only just started. She galavanted around while we looked on in awe, wishing we could be half the badass that Gaga has proven to be. 

What will the rest of the night bring? We're sure that while the other celebs will bring lots of drama, nothing will come close to this. You win, Gaga, you win.
