Lady Gaga rocks Versace for 'Edge of Glory' music video
It seems impossible but Lady Gaga wears just one outfit (yes, ONE!) in her latest music video for her song, 'Edge of Glory'. And which designer did she choose? No, it's not Mugler but rather Versace... vintage. Sourced from the late Gianni Versace's final collection, Gaga has opted for his leather studded corset top with criss-cross straps. So taken with the superstar, Donatella Versace agreed to open up her brother's archives for the first time since his tragic death in 1997.
"I am a great fan of hers and I believe that my brother Gianni would have appreciated her talent," she said. "Like him, Lady Gaga is unafraid to push boundaries and she has created an original vocabulary by merging fashion, music, theatre and art. For me, this video represents a wonderful tribute to anyone who is unafraid to take chances."
Although it seems not everyone is a fan of her choice. New York Times fashion columnist Cathy Horyn wasn't overly impressed.
"As funny and as fresh as Gaga was in her speech at the recent C.F.D.A. awards, she looked embalmed in the black Versace harness," she writes. "I don't know why Donatella Versace said she was honored by Gaga's selection, unless, of course, she thought she had to say something nice about the superstar. But a D.O.A. video doesn't help the House of Versace. Be choosier, Ms. Versace."
Hmm... I'll let you be the judge. What do you think of Gaga's choice of outfit? Do you think she could have done better? Tell me below.
