McQueen's "Armadillo" shoes.
As soon as pictures of Alexander McQueen's terrifying lobster-claw shaped "Armadillo" shoes (Spring 2010) hit the Internet, fashion-savvy bloggers began making guesses about who would be the first to wear them. All ye who guessed Lady Gaga: you are correct.

Today, the official video for Gaga's latest single, "Bad Romance." hit the web. It's typical Gaga - beautiful, scary, and kind of awesome: Gaga gets kidnapped by evil supermodels who sell her off to the Russian mafia. She also wears a crapload of couture through her trying ordeal.

But my favorite shot is definitely of her strutting in head-to-toe McQueen to the chant "walk walk, fashion baby, work it move that bitch crazy."


UPDATE: Last month, Gaga debuted the final cut of this song at McQueen's Spring 2010 show; it's likely he planned to see them on her from the get-go.
