Lady Gaga Bleaches Eyebrows, Goes Makeup-Free At Benefit (PHOTOS)

We can't believe our eyes, but Lady Gaga's shocking new look doesn't involve meat dresses, kermit costumes or facial horns.

Instead, the "Born This Way" singer sported a stripped-down look at the 'Devils Heaven' gala benefit on Saturday which featured her natural dark hair, no makeup save for a hint of mascara, bleached eyebrows and a "bull" nose ring.

Of course, Gaga wouldn't be Gaga if she weren't wearing something controversial. The 27-year-old sported a leather sheer dress which exposed her black bra and matching undies. By her standards, that outfit is practically modest!

The "Paparazzi" singer has been showing off her more natural look ever since she emerged from self-exile after a long recovery from hip surgery.

Her new gimmick-less phase seems to be in service of her upcoming album "ARTPOP" (check out the artwork for her new single here); Gaga posed nude for V magazine without much help from makeup and has opted to wear less outrageous clothes out in public.

So is this the real Gaga?
