Lady Gaga’s “Alejandro” video premiered today and it did not disappoint: Directed by famed fashion photographer Steven Klein, the epic video clocks in at just under nine minutes and features plenty of gasp-inducing sights, from Gaga’s racy dance scenes in flesh-toned Calvin Klein undies to her custom machine gun bra by David Samuel Menkes (not to mention Emporio Armani’s military-inspired designs for the male dancers). The rest of Gaga’s wardrobe stayed relatively dark and symbolic—expect dramatic pieces by Alexander McQueen, a custom nun outfit by Atsuko Kudo and an elaborate binocular headpiece by Nasir Mazhar.  Fans who adored her “Bad Romance” routine will also rejoice at the fluid choreography, which will surely make its way into clubs—and be copied in countless Youtube tribute clips—soon.
