As tired as I am of fashion films with Lady Gaga soundtracks, (*cough* Gareth Pugh *cough* Show Studio) the House of Mugler short film that features her new track is, in a word, badass. However, after the initial “oh my gosh, fashion eye candy!” viewing, I can’t help but cringe a little more with each successive viewing. Yes its cool to look at, the runway shots are exciting and the faux facial tattoos are visually striking, but its also nauseatingly trendy with its formulaic use of black and white, low-key lighting and slow-motion. And I just KNOW this song is going to be playing everytime I walk into Topshop for the next three months.
