With February just beginning, Lady Gaga is already blowing the fashion world away. Between her stripped-down Tiffany & Co. commercial, her Super Bowl performance in a show-stopping Atelier Versace and Swarovski jumpsuit, and now the “John Wayne” visuals, she’s killing it.
Directed by Jonas Akerlund of “Paparazzi” and “Telephone,” the fast-paced music video follows a lovesick Gaga as she smashes bottles and writhes on country bad boys in technicolored action. In line with her aesthetic evolution, stylist Brandon Maxwell included her signature Joanne pale-pink suits and Miliner Gladys Tamez to the rotation of sexy Americana looks. For “John Wayne,” she trades in the more traditional Manuel Couture jackets she’s worn on her 2016 Dive Bar Tour for more boundary-pushing pieces.
