Release Date: August 13th
Promoting the public sale of her Las Vegas residency tickets, Lady Gaga posted a second promotional poster for ENIGMA shot by Inez & Vinoodh and styled by Nicola Formichetti! I believe the photos were captured recently along with the first ENIGMA photo at Milk Studios in New York City July 11th.
For the second photo, Lady Gaga continues her neon aesthetic with an incredible dress from Dutch designer Iris Van Herpen. Mother Monster has previously worn Van Herpen designs since the beginning of her career but very rarely (see left). From the brand new Fall 2018 "Syntopia" collection, Lady Gaga wears a corseted dress from look 10.
The collection explores the new worlds that arise within synthetic biology and the intertwining relationships between the organic and the inorganic, acknowledging the current scientific shift in which biology converges with technology and visualizes the fragility and power within. Her dress is the "Mimesis" and is a perfect example of this. Made from bird's soundwave patterns that are lasercut of mylar, black cotton, red organza, and transparent black acrylic sheets, layering the silk and acrylic like a feather's architecture.
Unfortunately, I cannot find this beautiful dress available for purchase anywhere online.
To further accentuate her look, Nicola Formichetti added a neon mesh bodysuit underneath the dress as well as colorful tulle flowing up and behind her. Both of which were created by Diego Ferrer who has previously assisted NicoPanda. None of his work is available for purchase online but you can contact Ferrer by email at [email protected]
And of course, her look was not complete with hair by Frederic Aspiras and makeup by Sarah Tanno of the Haus of Gaga!
Hopefully we will get to see this full look in some promotional photos soon!
Tickets for ENIGMA: The Las Vegas Residency are on sale now! Thanks to Nicola Formichetti for posting the details on this look!
