Donatella Versace Loves Her Lady Gaga
Rumor has it that Lady Gaga will only be wearing Versace for the next two months. While, I really doubt that’s the case the singer is rocking an archived vintage piece from the high fashion house in her newest music video for her track Edge of Glory.
This isn’t just any dress she’s wearing in the video either, it’s exclusively from Versace’s official archive, which Donatella Versace personally opened up for Gaga for the first time since the passing of her brother Gianni in ’97. The video itself shows off Gaga expressively dancing around a city street and a fire escape and this dress isn’t much of a ‘dress’ at all, it’s more like very bondage-like leather piece.
Donatella released a statement to the media about Versace dressing Gaga, “I am greatly honored that Lady Gaga chose to wear a Versace Vintage look throughout her Edge of Glory video. I am a great fan of hers and I believe that my brother Gianni would have appreciated her talent. 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.”
Considering Gaga is typically team Mugler (she is BFF with designer Nicola Formichetti), I wonder how close her and Donatella really are? Or if this is just a play to get Versace’s name at the forefront of the media again? Whatever the case may be, any fashion house Gaga supports will be followed by love from her monsters (that’s what her fans are called).
You don’t have to turn into a monster to watch her below to catch this now famous dress in action.
