Screenshots: Lady Gaga's 'Applause' Music Video

"Lady Gaga's highly anticipated new music video "Applause" has been finally released a few days ago and I must say that this new single is definitely worth the wait... a round of applause for Mother Monster."

Directed and shot by Dutch photographers Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin aka Inez and Vinoodh (the duo behind her most recent V Magazine spread). The video basically looks like a moving photo shoot of a fashion magazine issue cover story as it is from beginning to end full of avant garde fashion and style. Couture pieces that Lady Gaga wore on her latest music video were from the likes of Valentino, Martin Margiela, Alaia, John Galliano, Gareth Pugh to name a few.

Here are some of my favorite moments from Lady Gaga's Applause music vide0:

Lady Gaga will be performing "Applause" live for the first time in Brooklyn at the MTV Video Music Awards on Sunday, August 21, 2013. Her new album, ARTPOP, the follow-up to her chart-topping album, Born This Way, is out on November 11. Listen to the first single, “Applause,” below:
