LADY GAGA has kicked off festivities at this year's Cannes Film Festival in jaw-dropping style

Born This WayThe eccentric star bucked the sophisticated trend of the plush movie convention while preparing for a performance of her new single dressed only in a bra, pants and tights.

GaGa gave spectators an up-close view of her largely bare body and bicep tattoo before changing into a Spanish matador-inspired outfit for the airing of Judas, which broadcast on French TV.
