Did Lady Gaga basically win the 2020 MTV VMAs? Yes! ICYMI: Awards shows in 2020 look a little different, but Gaga broke the internet with her high-fashion face mask game, collab performance of “Rain On Me” with Ari and btw, did we mention that MTV created the first ever Tri-Con Award just for her? Lady G’s longtime stylist Frederic Aspiras (@fredericaspiras) served Chromatica fierceness by creating this icy blue and chrome blonde for her red carpet look!


“Love is the inspiration,” Frederic said in a recent IG post. “Bringing all the elements of earth, wind and fire. Lady Gaga’s journey [through] the years has inspired me to create hairstyles and color combinations that encapsulates this journey. She is tough, brave, a musical genius, a visionary and overall kind human being that believes in love and kindness in the world.”
