Lady Gaga and her pal, Thierry Mugler designer Nicola Formichetti, hit Paris Fashion Week once again, dropping a new film during the Mugler women’s wear show on Wednesday.
As MTV News previously reported, Gaga and Formichetti teamed
up with directors Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin
for the project. On Thursday (September 29), fans not in Paris for Fashion Week got to see a
special edit of the film when it premiered online.
The video, which mixes Mugler runway show footage with clips from the new Gaga film, offers another take on Mother Monster’s ever-evolving persona. It opens on a close-up of Gaga’s face, her teeth diamond-encrusted, as she says, “Sometimes, my heart sometimes feels so black … and other days my heart feels like rainbows.”
She flips her multicolored hair, saying, “I am Paris. We are Paris.” In the next scene, a three-headed Gaga dances while a haunting track plays in the background. The image is reminiscent of the one that appeared on the cover of V magazine earlier this year. (As for the runway show, the clothes seen in the video are futuristic in style, in mostly muted tones.)
The directors, Inez and Vinoodh, worked with Gaga on her “Yoü and I” fashion films and, so far, three have featured some of her alter egos, including the nymph, the bride and Yüyi the mermaid . More “Yoü and I” films are expected to premiere, but when and where remains a mystery.
Gaga and Mugler have collaborated before: Besides the fact that designer Formichetti is her stylist, he has also debuted some of her brand-new music at his shows. In January, she premiered a remix of her Born This Way track “Scheiße” at a Mugler fashion show. Two months later, in March, Gaga not only walked the runway at a show, she debuted her song “Government Hooker”
The pop star is already back at work on her next album. Late Wednesday, she tweeted, “Almost #14MillionMonsters!! Thank you for making Born This Way really matter, this has been a crazy memorable year! Writing music today.”
