As we wait with baited breath for Spring/Summer 2014 trends to arrive on the high street, high fashion labels are slowly unveiling their spring/summer campaign images. It was shortly into the new year that Lady Gaga shared the first image of her as the face of the Italian fashion house Versace’s Spring/Summer 2014 campaign along with an excited tweet. This was following the announcement released with an image of the “Bad Romance” singer on the purple recliner wearing a lilac wrap dress.
“Happy New Years from HAUS OF GAGA and @Versace!”she captioned her festive tweet.
Versace also shared the photo on its Twitter page in response to Gaga’s post with the caption, “A special Happy New Year to the most glamourous @ladygaga !!!!!”
Now the label has released more images of Gaga. Photographed by Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott, Lady Gaga strikes an uncanny resemblance to Donatella Versace.
Donatella recently spoke to the Independent about her decision to hire Gaga as the face of Versace, saying: “I am honoured that my friend Lady Gaga is the face of our new Versace campaign. I wanted to capture her true beauty and spirit in images that are elegant and alluring. She is like family to me, the embodiment of the Versace DNA.”
What do you think of Lady Gaga as a young Donatella? FAB or drab?
