Lady Gaga's washing-up gloves became the meme of Oscars 2015

As you would expect, the internet exploded.

SO, OF ALL the goings on at last night’s Oscars, including some dramatic speeches and glorious frocks, one fashion statement stood out as the most daring of the night.

It was, of course, Lady Gaga’s washing-up gloves that stole the evening.

She arrived on the red carpet looking divine, but talk quickly turned to those red gloves she was sporting

And then the internet started to react in the only way they know how – by making many a hilarious meme

101 Dalmatians references were never far away

And the fact that the gloves did indeed look like they would accompany industrial cleaning product was an obvious point of reference

The gloves were so versatile, super heroes were next

And finally, the toilet brush shot capped off a fine night for the internet

The lesson here, of course, is that any and all Oscar red carpet choices will be fair game – and that red latex gloves will bring out the best in the internet.
