lady gaga fashion icon award

Born This Way singer Lady Gaga was honored at the 2011 CFDA Fashion Award last night.  The entertainer received the Fashion Icon Award at the 10th annual event in New York City.

Some think she's over the top but isn't that really what makes an icon?  When accepting the award, Gaga said: "Fashion made me feel like a star before I was."

The songstress wore a custom-made Thierry Mugler gown to the event, but caused a scene later in the evening when she took it off at the Boom Boom Room.  Photographers captured her wearing a black bikini style bottom with a sheer body stocking.  We'll leave it to others to publish the racy pics.
