Lady Gaga’s new “Edge of Glory” video is here! And, we must say, we’re pleasantly surprised. Gone are the bells and whistles (other than her two-tone hair and wild eye makeup), and we’re left with a simple-themed short—Gaga singing her heart out on a fire escape and urban streets (though, the “streets” look a little too clean to be NYC). She also stripped it down for the fashion, exclusively wearing vintage Versace pieces, including a gold-studded corset top, leather shorts, and gold accessories. Donatella Versace released this statement about the clothes:
“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.”
