Jimmy Brown - 1st Mar 2011

Award-winning fashion photographer Nick Knight delivers a multi-layered visual feast for Lady Gaga's Born This Way - three weeks after the single release. But then Lady Gaga operates in her own universe and time zone...

Kicking off with a lengthy monologue set to Bernard Herrmann's theme from Hitchcock's Vertigo, Knight and Gaga let their imaginations run riot with a wild kaleidoscopic Alien-style 'infinite birth', building in intensity before the main event.

Choreographed by Laurieann Gibson and brilliantly styled by Gaga's right-hand man Nicola Formichetti, there's lots of ghoulish touches, excellent photography from Edu Grau, acres of bare flesh, sensational make-up by Billy B and of course another knockout performance from Gaga. Better late than never...
