lady gaga and lucky blue smith star in tom ford’s new music video
Runway? No way! The designer creates a new clip for Lady Gaga’s version of 'I Want Your Love' instead.
Paris Fashion Week might be in full swing, but Tom Ford decided to forgo the usual catwalk antics and instead make a glossy music video with Lady Gaga. The designer called on Nick Knight to direct an updated, high-glam film to accompany a Gaga-reworked version of Chic's 70s classic, I Want Your Love.
The designer, who is currently working on the follow-up to his Oscar-nominated film A Single Man, said he wanted to "try something new", so he staged a full show in LA and filmed all the fun. "Having a runway show has become so much about the creation of imagery for online and social media and watching a filmed fashion show can be like watching a filmed play [which is never very satisfying]. I wanted to think about how to present a collection in a cinematic way that was designed from its inception to be presented online," says Ford. As well as a bleach-hair and browed Gaga, there are cameos from Lucky Blue Smith, Lexi Bolling, Aymeline Valade, Kayla Scott, Xaio Wen Ju and Valery Kaufman, all dancing like they're in a Soul Train line-up.
