Grammys 2016: Lady Gaga, Your Outfit Reminds Us Of...

02/15/2016 at 09:26 PM ET

Lady Gaga is back to her old red carpet tricks. She’s clearly channeling a pitch perfect David Bowie with this Grammys outfit, but it also harkens back to the some of the singer’s more outlandish, show-stopping ensembles of yesteryear. The pop star is the spitting image of the late singer with her neon hair and sequin embellished coat dress, but we can think of a few other famous cartoon characters that could have also inspired this look.

Nobody does a thematic costume quite like Mother Monster, just look at the outfit she wore to sing the National Anthem at the Super Bowl this year if you need any further proof. For her tribute, Gaga wore a custom designed Marc Jacobs electric blue double-breasted satin coat dress embroidered with multi-colored sequins and decorative metallic elements by Maison Lesage, worn with a pair of her signature sky-high platform heels, a lid full of solid blue glitter eyeshadow, and freshly-dyed neon orange hair à la Ziggy Stardust.

This look may be head-to-toe Bowie perfection, but we can think of a handful of ginger-haired cartoon characters that could have also easily instigated this major style transformation.

Geezus save us. This is horrific so soon after he died.

I’ve never dyed my hair, so I don’t know anything about it. How healthy is it to to keep dying it? Does it make the hair thinner and fragile? Lady Gaga changes her hair color like I change my undies.

Well…it’s not as atrocious as her past ensembles. Lol I don’t think anything will ever be as bad as that meat dress (complete with matching meat accessories) or the latex getups that she paired with the new horns she had bulging out of her face and shoulders 🙈

Horrendous 😳

A tribute is not an imitation, it was embarrassing for Bowie lovers to see this woman pretend to be him like a drag show in Times Square. An artist performing another songs in their style is a tribute, mimicry is not. If when Whitney Houston died Lionel Richie got on stage in a dress a pretended to be her no one would applaud, why anyone did tonight is beyond me.

Wonderful – stunning – radiant – I think Mr. Bowie would have loved it :) Lady Gaga gives due to where her inspirations come from and this is one.
