Given Alexander McQueen’s untimely and tragic death, we wanted to pay tribute to the vibrant life that shone through his work and his collections. Here’s just one instance of McQueen’s inimitable style: the infamous “Armadillo Shoes” worn by Lady Gaga in her edgy “Bad Romance” video.

With 10-inch heels, the shoes look almost alien–used by Gaga to great effect in dancing sequences, where you have to admit “alien” is a pretty great compliment.

What’s your favorite McQueen look?
