Watch: Lady Gaga & Nicola Formichetti in 'Viva Glam' Video

Even with her busy schedule, Lady Gaga has been relentlessly promoting her Viva Glam campaign for Mac Cosmetics, with all proceeds going to the MAC AIDS Fund. Now, the cosmetics company has released behind the scenes footage from the shoot featuring the pop empress and her fashion director Nicola Formichetti.

The video features Mother Monster in a fantastically twisted patent leather look, stiletto platforms, and a wig of monumental scale. In the video, Gaga muses on how she sometimes gathers inspiration from her Little Monsters, saying, "I love when I see fans with makeup on at the show. They're so good at it, too. I see looks and I think, 'I'm going to steal that from you. I'm gonna do that.'"

Another highlight from the video features Formichetti trying on, and rocking, the "universal beige" lipstick. The lipstick ably paired with his muted minimalist black and white look. "Wow, manly," he said as he checked himself out in a mirror.

Gaga and Formichetti are quite the creative dynamic duo (think Batman and Robin of pop culture) and it's always inspiring and intriguing to watch them together. What do you think?
