Lady Gaga’s new video for 'Born This Way' launched this afternoon, and along with it came the debut of some of Nicola Formichetti’s first designs for Mugler.
Formichetti tweeted to let followers know that Gaga and Rico “Zombie Boy” Genest wear Mugler tuxedos in one of the video’s scenes.
Forgive us if we noticed the makeup before the clothes—after all, though Gaga’s skeletal look is down to clever makeup, Formichetti muse Genest’s consists of facial tattoos.
The video has top-tier fashion cred beyond all the Mugler. Showstudio founder and photographer extraordinaire Nick Knight directed, and it features a clutch of models, including Raquel Zimmermann.
Other outfits (credits TBC) include a leather-and-chains bikini, a nude jumpsuit with strategically placed zips, and an intergalactic goddess get-up with lots of metallic tulle. Oh, and there are some horn-like facial implants as well.
What do you think – does the video live up to Gaga’s hype?
