Lady Gaga presents Tom Ford's SS16 line in runway video

Eccentric musician Lady Gaga will appear in a runway video titled Funk the Punk to show Tom Ford's latest fashion line.

(Cover) - EN Star Style - Singer Lady Gaga will help present Tom Ford's Spring/Summer 16 collection via a short film.

There were murmurs the designer was skipping shows this season when his name didn't appear on the London Fashion Week schedule.

But now it's been confirmed the Poker Face musician will appear in a runway video called Funk the Punk, shot by Nick Knight.

“Instead of having a traditional show this season, I decided to try something new. I wanted to think about how to present a collection in a cinematic way that was designed from its inception to be presented online," he explained to WWD.

Select editors will see the film Friday morning (02Oct15), and it will be made available to the public via Tom's website at 1pm CET.

Gaga is clearly excited about the project, as she posted a teaser on Twitter. Set to dramatic music, she can be seen writhing around in a black crop top and matching briefs. It's dark around her, but the catwalk is lit up beneath her.

"The first time Tom Ford and Nick Knight worked together, I got to be there," she posted, adding a crying emoji.

Tom is no stranger to the film industry - he directed Colin Firth and Julianne Moore in 2009's A Single Man and his latest feature, Nocturnal Animals, starring Jake Gyllenhaal and Amy Adams, hits cinemas in 2016.

When he first made the move to film, he didn't realise so many people thought he was setting himself up for a fall.

"Everyone expected I’d be ridiculed – but no one told me. They all said: 'Oh great! I can’t wait.' Now everyone asks how it felt to be snickered at. But no one snickered to me!" he previously laughed to Time Out London.
