Spotted: Lady Gaga Goes White For amfAR

Every day a multitude of stars wanders through the halls of MTV News to talk about their latest projects and goof around with our intrepid correspondents. But sometimes we catch stars elsewhere, and that’s why we put together Spotted!, a daily compendium of stars in the wild.

New York Fashion Week kicked off in earnest on Wednesday night (February 10) with the annual amfAR New York Gala, which was held at posh Manhattan hot spot Cipriani. It was the perfect event for Lady Gaga, as it combined two of her great passions: fashion and AIDS research. Gaga appeared at the event clad all in white, with a jacket and snowflake-bedecked tights. (Actually, she looked a lot like “X-Men” character Emma Frost.) Gaga’s enthusiasm for high fashion is well-known, but her commitment to AIDS research is relatively new. She has been making the rounds (along with cohort Cyndi Lauper) to support a line of lipstick that will benefit the MAC AIDS Fund’s VIVA Glam campaign.

Gaga wasn’t the only star at the amfAR event, as “Avatar” and “Star Trek” star Zoe Saldana and Eliza Dushku of “Dollhouse” were also in attendance. And not everybody is in New York, as Ludacris rocked a concert in Tampa, Florida and Rihanna met with fans in Seoul, South Korea. Click here for these photos as well as the entire “Spotted!” archive, which features over 300 candid shots of stars like Britney Spears, Taylor Swift, Miley Cyrus, the Jonas Brothers, Justin Bieber, Beyoncé, Diddy, Wyclef Jean, Shakira, Jay-Z, the Black Eyed Peas, Justin Timberlake, John Mayer and Kanye West!
