Lady Gaga had another year of making waves. She supported her album Born This Way with an appearance at the MTV VMAs, where she made the rounds as her alter ego Jo Calderone. From there, Gaga went on to headline the first I Heart Radio music festival in Las Vegas and found love with The Vampire Diaries' Taylor Kinney.
NYC got a special treat from Gaga and Barneys when she transformed an entire floor at the NYC store into her very own holiday workshop. She earned multiple Grammy nods but walked away empty handed from the ceremony. Gaga came up a winner, though, in her advocacy work and got praise for speaking out against bullying.
