It's official: Lady Gaga is going to hit the stage during her upcoming Born This Way Ball tour wearing custom-made Giorgio Armani. And if these exclusive sketches are anything to go by, it's going to be pretty spectacular...

"The custom Giorgio Armani wardrobe created for Lady Gaga is characterized by extreme forms and futuristic materials – latex, metal, studs, PVC – crafted with couture savoir faire," says Armani. "Each outfit is completed with detailed, other-worldly accessories."

This bonkers musical instrument ensemble is our personal fave:

Of course this isn't the first time that Gaga and Armani have joined forces: the fashion house created several bespoke outfits for the Lady to wear at the 2010 Grammys, and designed several costumes for her last Monster Ball world tour.

"Collaborating with Lady Gaga is always an exciting experience for me. I admire the way she uses fashion as a scenic element and as a means to build a character," says Giorgio Armani. "She is an artist of many talents and great intelligence. Creating stage costumes for her is a stimulating and creative exercise."

The Asian leg of the world tour kicks off in Seoul on 27th April, which means we don't have to wait long to see pictures of the final costumes in all their Gaga glory. EXCELLENT.
