What a way to start the new year! Lady Gaga is pictured topless for the latest image in her Spring 2014 campaign for Versace. But fret not — thanks to the long, blonde hair she wears in the image, it's safe for you to click on. The singer tweeted the picture Thursday as a way to wish her followers a Happy New Year, and the house retweeted it shortly afterward.
All of the ads in this campaign have debuted on social media: the first image, released in November, was posted to Instagram by photographer Mert Alas. A mere 24 hours later, a second image from the campaign was released while Lady Gaga appeared as the embodiment of the campaign on the American Music Awards red carpet.
She wore the same dress she wears in the campaign (above) on the red carpet at the American Music Awards (below).
On Facebook, Versace said, "the campaign shows how Lady Gaga completely captures the Versace essence: creative, experimental, fearless." It also shows how much Gaga can look like the house's creative director, Donatella. While the singer appears as herself in the campaign, she embodies everything from the legendary designer's stick-straight blonde hair to her steely gaze. We can only imagine they listened to the singer's new track "Donatella" while the cameras clicked. The artist herself referenced the song's lyrics when she tweeted about it a couple of months ago. "What do you wanna wear this Spring?" she asked her followers.

Gaga certainly isn't the only star who's appeared in a campaign for the Italian fashion house. January Jones, Madonna, and Jennifer Lopez, among others, have also starred in the brand's ads. Tell us what you think of Lady Gaga for Versace in the comments!
