As was expected at last night's Brit Awards, Lady Gaga paid the ultimate tribute to her friend, Alexander McQueen, by dedicating her performance to the late designer. Considered McQueen's unofficial muse, the outlandish songstress made quite an impression on the red carpet donning a white layered-cake style gown, glittery mask and Marie Antoinette-inspired bouffant wig. In total, Gaga took home three awards.

"It's been tough, but I hope you enjoy it," she said of her performance, which was toned down because her initial plans were deemed too morbid. While, it was also reported that she turned her dressing room into a shrine for McQueen. See a video of her performance after the jump...
