Lady Gaga’s 'ARTPOP' Release Was Launched with a Flying Dress

Today marks the day of Lady Gaga’s ARTPOP release and it is no surprise that the popstar dressed in something spectacular for the occasion. Gaga had ‘Voltantis’ made for her — a dress that also doubles as a hovercraft. The name of the dress combines the French word "voler" (meaning "to fly") with "Atlantis," creating a mythical metaphor for how she is the vehicle for her fan’s voices.

Gaga debuted the Voltantis dress at the Brooklyn Navy Yard during her 'ARTRAVE' party, with many fans who captured her movements in the flying dress. The all-white ensemble consisted of six disks above her form, to provide lift and a fluted dress-like base that also helped to balance her motions.

With rumors circulating that she will be one of the first artists to perform in space, the Volantis just seems like the start of how she will continue to push the boundaries of technology, music and fashion. Photo Credits: designboom,
