After nearly a year of rumors, it has finally happened! Donatella Versace has confirmed that Lady Gaga is the new face of Versace's Spring 2014 campaign in a statement to The Independent. The campaign, shot by Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott, will start running in high-end fashion magazines this January. Check out Donatella's statement below:
“I am honoured that my friend Lady Gaga is the face of our new Versace campaign. I wanted to capture her true beauty and spirit in images that are elegant and alluring. She is like family to me, the embodiment of the Versace DNA.”
The Independent says Gaga stuns in the images, wearing "chain mail, hyper-short skirts and metallic Medusa head medallions the size of a fist." We can't wait to see what the rest of the images have in store!
UPDATED: Versace have released another statement along with the first official image from the campaign, along with a tweet from Gaga! Check it all out below:

The campaign shows how Lady Gaga completely captures the Versace essence: creative, experimental, fearless.
