Hello there, Lady Gaga's butt. It's been a while. How've you been?

But seriously. We've recently felt that Lady Gaga's been eclipsed by Nicki Minaj, Rihanna and a slew of women lesser-known yet equally audacious in the style department (e.g. one Micaela Schaefer). But all Gaga needs is just a single paparazzi moment to remind us that she's the queen of the costume-as-clothing, inventor of the wardrobe malfunction-as-fashion statement, leader of the little monster pack.

Which is all to say that Gaga arrived at LAX Airport today wearing nothing but a black bra, an open leather jacket, sheer black tights and a black thong. When paparazzi snapped pictures of her, she gleefully flipped them off.

Welcome back, Gaga. It's nice to have you.
