LADY Gaga is sparing no expense on her Born This Way Ball world tour.

The 26-year-old singer commissioned a set decorated as a Gothic castle, featuring viewing towers and intricate carvings, for the shows which kicked off in Seoul, South Korea last month and it reportedly takes fifteen 53 foot long tractor trailers to move the castle and main stage.

James ''Winky'' Fairorth, CEO of Tate Towers told US Weekly: ''The stage set for the Born This Way Ball is the largest scenic structure that's ever been built to tour.''

Gaga has also asked a host of Italian designers including Versace, Armani and Moschino to create her costumes, saying: ''It's been my life's dream to be dressed in Italian designers.''

Donatella Versace is full of praise for the singer, and explained how excited she is by the collaboration.

She said: ''Lady Gaga is the present and the future. She is the most revolutionary and inspirational artist.

"She is fearless and daring. I can't wait for everyone to be surprised by what we've cooked up together!''
