YouTube Music Awards: Lady Gaga's 'Decaying Teeth' and Other Looks We Can't Stop Talking About

Posted on

We had a feeling the YouTube Music Awards would be have the same anything-goes fashion policy as the MTV VMAs. And we were right.

Host Vanessa Hudgens donned a medieval mosaic-printed Dolce & Gabbana gown, similar to Katy Perry’s Met Gala dress. She teamed the look with gold sparkle pumps, loose waves and a wine-colored pout. And while it’s definitely out-of-the-box, we think this look totally works on the fashion risk-taker.

Speaking of risk-takers, Lady Gaga continued her parade of one-of-a-kind style choices, hitting the carpet with an interesting looking grill of teeth by Gilding Primal Instinct.

“It is actually a cuff bracelet that I sell in my ready to wear collection,” Danielle Nicole Hills, the jewelry designer behind the brand, tells PEOPLE. “Although it wasn’t custom designed for her, her use of it in her mouth made it truly unique. This is the first piece of mine that she has worn. I definitely hope there will be others.”

And you can own the same piece for $180! “The piece is made of solid bronze, which has been oxidized to create a darker finish, and features acrylic denture teeth set into it,” Hills says. “I base my collection off of character archetypes of human behavior. This particular piece is part of my character, The Surgeon, which focuses on the idea that we have to do damage in order to heal. I make a set of large, conceptual ‘couture’ pieces for the character, then create smaller, more wearable pieces that can be sold directly to my clients. The dental cuff was inspired by the Surgical Mask I created for this character.”

And though it’s tough to compete with that, M.I.A. gave “glam Grateful Dead concertgoer” her best shot, wearing acid-wash jeans, a multicolor fringe-embellished topper and oversize round sunnies.

Which look captured your attention the most? Do you like Hudgens’s dress? How about Gaga’s grill? Share your thoughts in the comments.
