One way to snag a man on Valentine's Day is to dress like a wedding cake. That's what Gaga did in this triple tiered Alexander McQueen dress, with a gorgeous white lace veil (there's no fabric more romantic than white lace). Her pouf hairdo is very Marie Antoinette-esque. Now all she need is the groom and the cake topper!
