Lady Gaga and Beyonce “Telephone” video: Who are the designers behind it?

March 11th, Lady Gaga’s video for “Telephone” featuring Beyonce was released with everyone’s anticipation that it was going to be EPIC…  I have to say the whole thing was a bit too much to digest at times and you would need to watch it several times before you get half the video’s story line clearly.  The video was also a bombardment of all kinds of fashion WOWs and Oh NOs.  Nevertheless the looks in this video deserve a lot of attention, because clearly a crazy amount of WORK and imagination went into making every scene and outfit.  (You can only wonder how much fun the creators had in making the storyboard for this video).  We could go on and on about how the video is EPIC or not, but my goal here is to shift the attention to the designers behind the video.  First if you have not seen the video, check it out:

The designers involved in this video are; Atsuko Kudo (A Couture Latex and Fetish House), Jeremy Scott, Haus of Gaga (Lady Gaga’s Creative Team), Christian Louboutin, Charles de Castelbajac, Oscar Olima, Franc Fernandez, Emilie Pirlot, Mercura, Brian Lietchenberg, Victor & Rolf, Search and Destroy, Chanel, Vintage Thierry Mugler, Fred Butler, Rachel Barrett.  You can click on some the names, to check out their websites and work.  Here are some of their work in the video (pictures from Tresdope.com);

To get glasses as featured in video, try the new Marc Jacobs 90’s Retro style (186/s) or Dita’s GrandMaster (I believe these must be Tinted opticals).  They are quite pricey, if not stick to the Raybans, they are about $139 or get similar more affordable styles for $10 or more as shown above.
Get your shades on then!!!
