After her performance, Lady Gaga changed costumes at the MTV Video Music Awards. "That's Alexander McQueen, and I added the hat to it. It's the oldest archive in the McQueen Collection," she says. "It was meant to be a continuation of the VMA performance. So after ... the princess had been murdered by the paparazzi, the red lace was meant to symbolize sort of my eternal martyrdom."
