The Countess, the character played by Lady Gaga on American Horror Story: Hotel, is not just a bloodsucker — she’s a sexy bloodsucker. Exhibit A: this exclusive new image of a robed (or disrobed) Countess, the owner of the Hotel Cortez, from the latest season of FX’s anthology series.
The Countess kills with the claws of a chain-mail glove designed by L.A. accessories wiz Michael Schmidt, who has created custom pieces for Cher and Madonna. Murphy wanted it to look “both rock & roll and old at the same time," says Eyrich. "The nails have diamonds on the edge to slice." #AHSHotel Image Credit: Michael Avedon for EW.
