The magazine wrote, "If making fashion statements is your [thing], it's easy to get bored.  Exploding bra?  Flamed out.  Dress made of bubbles?  Please.  Using your hair as a bow?  Not again.  But a dress made of meat -- with shoes, hat and purse to match -- well, that's fresh."

Gaga also made Time's list of People Who Mattered in 2010, along with the likes of Pope Benedict, Steve Jobs, Barack Obama, Sarah Palin, Nancy Pelosi, LeBron James, the cast of Glee, Sandra Bullock, Betty White and Justin Bieber.

Writing about Gaga, Time said, "Her ability to weave fashion, choreography, visual art and a wide variety of pop-based musical styles into one...made her not only a household name but a pop icon."

Director ‘Speechless’ as 'Toy Story 3' Named Best Picture by 'Time'

Photo Courtesy -- Panini America(HOLLYWOOD) – Lee Unkrich, director of Toy Story 3, tweeted Thursday that he was ‘speechless’ after his film was named the best film of 2010 by Time magazine, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Time's Richard Corliss said the honor should be an example to other filmmakers. "Why are Pixar films so often at or near the top of annual best-picture lists? Because, we say with some exasperation, nobody these days makes better movies,” he wrote. “But the movie's most important lesson is for Hollywood: Watch this and see how it's done."

Previous awards for Unkrich include three shared Annie Awards for Finding Nemo, Monsters, Inc. and Toy Story 2.
