Song: John Wayne Album: Joanne Release Date: February 8th 2017
After her Super Bowl Halftime Show performance, Lady Gaga’s digital sales rose over 1000% and she announced her Joanne World Tour. Continuing her firestorm of promotion, Lady Gaga released the music video to her track “John Wayne”, from the “Joanne” album, as an Apple Music exclusive.
Directed by Jonas Akerlund (who previously directed her “Paparazzi” and “Telephone” music videos), “John Wayne” is a neon-lit fast-paced video continuing from the “Million Reasons” music video with iconic fashion.
Tied as my favorite look from the video, Lady Gaga switches into a skimpy black outfit with knee high red boots to ride on the hood of a car. Her shoes then turn into guns in reference to Robert Rodriguez (of "Machete Kills") and Quentin Tarantino.
To start, Lady Gaga wore a pair of gold hoop earrings from designer Mishka Piaf. Piaf took to Instagram asking someone to pinch her because she couldn't believe her work made it into Lady Gaga's music video. Lady Gaga's earrings are Piaf's "Horse Shoe Hoop Earrings" in gold, available for $220 here.
For her top, Lady Gaga wore another custom piece from up-and-coming designer Bryan Hearns. Hearns described the top as a "leather busted bustier" which was his first time moulding leather.
Next, Lady Gaga wore custom shorts from Wesley Berryman who also created Lady Gaga's custom red jacket shown earlier in the music video. Berryman took to Instagram to post about the look and thank Lady Gaga/Haus of Gaga for believing in his work but he did not post a photo of the individual shorts.
Finally, Lady Gaga's statement piece of this look is her thigh-high red patent boots. Lady Gaga's boots come from Pleaser USA and are their "Infinity 4000" boot in red patent leather. You can purchase Pleaser's Infinity 4000 boots through Pleaser directly here or starting at $125 through Amazon here.
Additionally, Lady Gaga is first shown in this look twirling a jacket in the air. Lady Gaga's jacket was her second jacket from Wesley Berryman who created a bedazzled denim jacket for the video.
The “John Wayne” music video is now also available on Lady Gaga’s VEVO. Watch it through YouTube
