Lady Gaga to Wear Giorgio Armani Costumes on Born This Way Ball Tour
The Armani fashion house will dress Lady Gaga on her upcoming Born This Way Ball tour. Sketches of the Giorgio Armani-designed outfits were posted online and in true (and literal) Gaga fashion, the singer is stepping up her couture costumes on this tour.
The sketches are loaded with spiked, thigh high boots with platform heels; furry tops with statement shoulders a la 'Dynasty'; headpieces that look like couture 'Alien' costumes; a triangular headgear paired with a long, monk-like cloak; a keyboard and guitar headdress; and more. We so want to grab a stool, stand on it and play Gaga's head keys.
There's even long gloves that end in mirrored nails. To call these looks fashion forward would be a disservice to Mr. Armani and his muse. These are game-changing looks.
Armani gushed about putting pen to paper and scissor to fabric with the Mother Monster as his source of inspiration, saying "Collaborating with Lady Gaga is always an exciting experience for me. I admire the way she uses fashion as a scenic element and as a means to build a character. She is an artist of many talents and great intelligence. Creating stage costumes for her is a stimulating and creative exercise."
That, we don't doubt. The sketches look fierce.
