In her latest attempt to provoke the fashion world, Lady GaGa asked the Dutch design duo Viktor & Rolf to design a prisoner’s outfit for her new video Telephone.
The extravagant outfit consists of a dark grey leopard jumpsuit, with a studded bodice and metal chains, which she shows off during a couple of scenes in the video.
'Lady GaGa asked us to design a prisoner's outfit. This is how we imagined Gaga if she would be incarcerated. She inspired us and her bodysuit was included in our brand-new glamour factory collection. It is styled with a huge pile of exaggerated metal chain necklaces,' Viktor & Rolf stated.
The video is a true piece of fashion art, with designer Jean-Charles de Castelbajac contributing a bespoke dress for Lady Gaga and a blue jacket from his spring/summer collection for co-star Beyoncé. Fashion newcomer Fred Butler designed the flamboyant headpiece GaGa is wearing.
It seems like all the big designers are trying to get their hands on Lady GaGa. Viktor & Rolf, Jean-Charles de Castelbajac and Fred Butler join the ranks of fashion moguls such as Alexander McQueen and Armani.
