For the 2011 CFDA Awards, Lady Gaga ditched the Cruella De Vil hairdo she’s been rocking lately in favor of a bobbed bright blue-green wig, a color we’d expect to find atop Nicki Minaj‘s head rather than on the Mother Monster. The controversial artist was honored at Lincoln Center last night by the Council Of Fashion Designers Of America with their Fashion Icon award. Check out the chart-topping pop star’s arrival and watch her touching and gracious acceptance speech here (It’s worth listening to the whole seven minutes — if only for her hilarious anecdote regarding a text exchange with Vogue‘s Anna Wintour.)
