Sir Elton John can add interviewer to his resume after sitting down with good pal Lady GaGa to discuss her fashion inspirations for a new V magazine article.
The Rocket Man, who named Gaga as godmother to his baby son Zachary, quizzed the Poker Face singer about her favourite wardrobe items as she posed for an edgy photoshoot to accompany the piece.
She tells Elton, "I’m mostly inspired by shapes, and using the body to create iconography. Leather culture and high-street punk fashion. I would say perfecto jackets occupy most of my fashion thoughts."
Gaga admits "there are no rules" when it comes to deciding upon her outrageous outfits and she loves nothing better than mixing couture with new custom-made designs from her own creative team, as she did while working on the promo for her new single.
She says, "We were laughing on the set of the Judas video - we had 50 racks of couture and I wore leather, Motorhead panties made of a vintage T-shirt, custom from young designers who are my friends, my own creations, and archive Christian Lacroix from a museum."
