It's hard to choose a favorite when it comes to two music and fashion icons like Lady Gaga and Madonna, but Dancing With the Stars forced its judges to do just that when they split the remaining dancers into two teams for this week's Cha-Cha-Challenge. While we have to agree that Team Gaga had the better dancers, we found ourselves lusting after Team Madonna's early 80's-inspired getups. All those pearls, bows, and lace are so feminine in a fun, whimsical way, and we're itching to give the look a modern update — no tutus or leggings required!
