If there’s one person who understands the correlation between fashion and art, it’s Lady Gaga.
The singer’s attention to detail when it comes to her wardrobe is equally as iconic as her music. Over the weekend, Gaga unexpectedly dropped a music video for “911,” the eighth track on her newest album “Chromatica.” And the music video has the most incredible fashion master pieces we’ve seen in a while.
The five-minute surreal mini-film, which is fashion directed by stylists Nicola Formichetti and Marta del Rio, depicts a hallucinatory visual after Gaga’s character faces a near-death experience. Historically, Gaga looks to the archives of designers like Versace and Mugler for her stand-out pieces. But this time, the fashion icon’s team turned to new designers for original, unique pieces. For example, Johannes Warnke, a recent graduate from Central Saint Martins, debuts two stunning pieces throughout the video.
However, it wouldn’t be a Gaga moment without an ode to the late Alexander McQueen, who made an appearance in the form of a vintage black lace asymmetrical dress from his Fall 1995 collection.
From masks to ethereal head pieces and spiked horns, these are the most iconic outfits from the video.
Johannes Warnke and Dead Lotus
The opening scene in the music video debuts Lady Gaga wearing a red latex-trimmed mesh mask by Dead Lotus Couture styled with a custom Johannes Warnke draped dress.
The vintage black lace dress initially walked the runway as part of Alexander McQueen‘s infamous “Highland Rape” Fall/Winer 1995 collection.
Next, Gaga stuns in a second draped dress by Johannes Warnke. The yellow ombré number was part of the designer’s graduate collection called “Windows of Perception,” styled with jewelry from the Western Costume Company.
Diego Montoya Studio
This custom blue hand-beaded dress was designed by American visual artist and costume designer Diego Montoya. Montoya is known for working with sustainable textiles to create innovative costumes.
Shaun Leane and Universal Studios Costumes
On the contrasting side of the music video, Gaga opted for this brandless off-the-shoulder green gown from Universal Studios Costumes. Her Shaun Leane silver and cubic zirconia studded halo might look familiar from Alexander McQueen’s Spring/Summer 1997 “La Poupée” collection.
