, to Versace
and every label in between, Lady Gaga
has a whole host of couture in her closet - but the singer decided to showcase some less well known design talent during her recent trip to Singapore, borrowing a dress from a graduate fashion collection...

The Lady struck a pose at a press conference prior to a big Singapore concert last month, showing off a towering aqua beehive and some seriously vertiginous studded wedges, along with a bold-shouldered stone neoprene dress - which was by Birmingham University fashion graduate, Rebecca Short.
"We all went to Graduate Fashion Week
at the end of term and took our designs," the 22-year-old designer told the Metro
. "Lady Gaga's stylist was there and she asked to borrow the dress."
"I wasn't sure if it was genuine to begin with but she asked for a few outfits from students, so the university arranged to send them. I knew she had a few designs, so I didn't expect to hear anything else."
So imagine her surprise, when little over a month later and Gaga once again hit the headlines - wearing her dress.
"It was so surreal, but there it was," said Rebecca. "The stylist had made it look amazing."
But the best part? Gaga's stylist even returned the original dress to the university, after she'd worn it.
Rebecca, who recently completed a BA in fashion design at Birmingham City University, has since earned herself a job at British fashion label Suzannah.

No words can describe the many things going on in this outfit. Gaga wore a corseted dress from Spanish designer Maya Hansen's 'Queen of Spain' collection to film the 106 and Park show in New York. The outfit was complete with a half bob, half Rapunzel hair do.</p>
Gaga doesn't exactly have a staple style, but a sheer dress and the ultimate pair of platforms has to be one of her fallbacks. She wore a Thierry Mugler design to promote her album <em>Born This Way</em> in Mexico City, May 2011.</p>
Gaga's meat dress will go down in history as the craziest thing ever worn by anyone. She took her eccentric style to a new level by wearing the Franc Fernandez design to collect an award at the MTV Video Music Awards in LA, 2010.</p>
Gaga arrived at the 2010 MTV Video Music Awards in an Alexander McQueen dress paired with crystal-studded 12-inch-high platform shoe-boots, also by McQueen.</p>
Gaga wore a dress by Francesco Scognamiglio to the 2010 Brit Awards and is that candy floss on her head?</p>
It's no secret that Gaga isn't afraid to flash her underwear and the 2009 Annual Billboard's Women in Music Awards were no exception. Her sheer, feathered gown was designed by London designer Holly Russell.</p>

Ok her legs are on show, but this ruffled bodice is relatively toned down compared to her other outfit choices. Even the shoes are normal! Gaga tried her best to be straight-laced at the Heartbeats By Lady Gaga Headphones unveiling at The New York Palace Hotel in 2009.</p>
Gaga wore a harlequin inspired outfit from the DressCamp autumn/winter 2009 collection by Marjan Pejoski to promote <em>The Fame</em> at the Grand Intercontinental Hotel, in Seoul, 2009.</p>
