After months of hype, Lady Gaga's third studio album, "ARTPOP," finally drops in the U.S. today. Last night, though, industry insiders gathered to celebrate the release at the Brooklyn Navy Yard in New York -- and of course, Gaga wore a gaggle of unusual outfits and accessories to show off.
The release doubled as an event called artRave, which included a press conference and multiple performances, most of which were lip-synced. The pop star introduced the technology something called a "flying dress" (which mostly just hovered), as well as some new pieces of art by visual artist Jeff Koons, who gets name-checked in Gaga's single,"Applause," and who commissioned the statue of Gaga which graces the cover of "ARTPOP."
There was also work debuted by artists Marina Abramovic, Robert Wilson and Inez & Vinoodh.
But of course, the real star where Gaga's many outfits and accessories, which ranged from unusual head pieces to some kind of space suit. Gaga announced last week that she'd be performing in space in collaboration with English entrepreneur Richard Branson as he debuted Virgin Galaxy.
