One week after announcing her long-awaited Las Vegas residency, Lady Gagatook to Instagram to unleash a cryptic trio of photos.
Gaga unveiled the triptych of unsettling, greyscale shots on Wednesday morning (Aug. 15). Director and photographer Eli Russell Linnetz, who’s worked extensively with Kanye West, is credited as the photographer for the images.
The first photo is a dramatic retouching of Lady Gaga’s body, drastically slimming the waist and accentuating her curvatures. In it, her mouth is lengthened and agape. The second features Gaga laying on the floor with an elongated nose. The third is a low-angle shot of Gaga in a lace bodice, metallic long gloves, and, most noticeably, an animal mask attached to her lower waist.
Lady Gaga’s Vegas residency begins on Dec. 28. The reboot of A Star Is Born, starring Gaga and Bradley Cooper, will premiere at Venice Film Festival Aug. 31.
