Who needs clothes?! Lady Gaga was honored at the Songwriters Hall of Fame 46th Annual Induction and Awards gala on Thursday, June 18 — but rather than dress up to receive her award for being a Contemporary Icon, the "Born This Way" singer decided to show up in her bra and panties!

The singer, 29, who is known for her unconventional appearance, rocked a red velvet jacket for the occasion, which she wore over her leather underwear, and a pair of torn pantyhose!

She accessorized her barely there outfit (which showed off her cleavage and bare stomach) with a pair of bejeweled John Lennon-style sunglasses and some platform boots.

Gaga, who was joined by fellow songwriters Richie Sambora, Michael Buble, Carly Rae Jepsenand Linda Perry at the event in New York City, performed an amazing version of Perry's "What's Up" before presenting her idol with an award.

Perry then returned the favor, performing a slowed down rendition of Gaga's "Bad Romance," before she was given her award by good friend Tony Bennett.

Gaga's been showing off a lot of flesh recently. The day before taking to the red carpet in her bra and panties, the newly-engaged singer shared a few photographs of herself on Bahamas vacation.

Work hard, play hard. Work hard again, play harder.

In one photo she's seen clinging to a palm tree in a tiny green bikini. In another, she shows off her toned nearly-naked butt as she turns her back to the camera and reveals her thong.
