In the first ads for the new fashion campaign, Gaga works stick straight platinum blonde hair and minimal makeup (and maybe a little self tanner?) as she models two understated — for Gaga and for Versace — looks from the Lady Gaga for Versace collection. In fact, one is the same lavender dress Gaga wore to the American Music Awards last Sunday, albeit without the white stallion.
Gaga bears a striking resemblance to Donatella Versace, the matriarch of the Italian fashion label.
But her little monsters probably saw this coming. The singer’s ARTPOP album included a track titled “Donatella,” which Gaga described as a love letter to the designer. (Sample lyric: “I am so fab, check it out/I’m blonde, I’m skinny/I’m rich, and I’m a little bit of a bitch.”)
The feeling appears to be mutual — the brand has designated #VersaceLovesGaga as the Twitter hashtag for the campaign. But tell us your thoughts, readers. Do you love the new “Dona-Gaga” look?
