Lady Gaga is preparing to kick off a tour across select venues in Asian and Europe, so it's to be expected that the insanely quirky singer/songwriter has four brand new costumes to share with the planet. After all, when you're as visually-driven as Gaga is, keeping a steady flow of new outfits is almost a job requirement. Assuming, of course, that the singer wants to keep her title as a full-blown fashion diva.
For those of you who will be attending any of these scheduled performances, chances are you'll get a good, hard look at the costumes in action when the singer hits the stage in the coming weeks. The "Born This Way Ball" tour, which kicks off in Seoul, South Korea, will showcase four brand new designs by Giorgio Armani.
Included in the collection is black bodysuit consisting of metal tubes, pieces of glass, and lots of metal studs, as well as a piece constructed of nets, crystals, and lots of sharp spikes. If this isn't enough to satiate your appetite for Gaga-centric fashion, you can also feast your eyes on her latest leotard, which was constructed using guitars parts. It also comes with a piano headpiece. You know, just in case the leotard was too subtle.
Last, but certainly not least, is the latex tunic, which will be covered with triangles that cover her body and face. I'm sure it looks a lot better than it sounds on virtual paper.
"The state-of-the-art outfits were made of materials... that epitomise the futuristic concept of this tour," Armani's business partner Shinsegae International told AsiaOne.
The tour, which will consist of 110 dates, is to support her latest album "Born This Way", which has sold six million copies worldwide since its release last May. The singer tends to spark controversy wherever she goes, and her stint in South Korea is sure to be no different. Conservative Christians are already praying that the concert is cancelled before Gaga has a chance to corrupt the country's youth.
Twitter-loving Gaga fans, meanwhile, seem quite excited about the singer's latest tour. You can read some of their responses, as well as a few choice tweets for the lady herself, below.
