Thousands of crystals in 21 different hues found their way onto bodysuits, ball gowns, and one statement-making floor-length coat pavéd in over 250,000 crystals, conceived by esteemed designer Michael Schmidt. Additional looks embellished with nearly 200,000 crystals for the pop icon and her dancers were created by fashion designer and Emmy Award nominated costume designer Zaldy. Other stand-out pieces with crystal adornments include Gladys Tamez’ signature “Joanne” hats, crystal fringe top by Vex Latex, crystal bodysuit by Michael Velasquez and crystal jacket by Lonotta Studio. Lady Gaga’s dancers also wore crystal denim by Haus of Gaga. For the finishing touch, make-up and masks were created by celebrity and fashion beauty artist Sarah Tanno. To help bring Gaga’s songs to life, production and set design studio Marla Weinhoff Studios created a bespoke crystallized keytar delivering a stunning visual effect.
No stranger to high-shine style, Gaga has flaunted Swarovski on the stage before, most recently lighting up the catwalk at the 2016 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show in a Gladys Tamez creation, the “One Million Dollar Hat”, featuring 45,700 swinging crystals that extended to the floor. Other stand out partnerships with Lady Gaga include the 2017 Super Bowl half-time show and American Horror Story.
Encouraging crystal experimentation and innovation in fashion, Swarovski strives to partner with visionary talents from various creative fields. Supporting artistry on the stage and beyond, teaming up with influential icons like Lady Gaga propels Swarovski into the spotlight in fresh and inspiring ways.
Gaga will carry on her headlining tour in mesmerizing sparkle for 60 shows throughout three countries, concluding with a final performance in California on December 18th.
