Anyone else been waiting on the edge of their seat for Miranda Lambert‘s fifth album, Platinum? We thought so. And now we’re extra-excited, because we got a sneak peek at the country superstar’s gorgeous photoshoot for the album. In the video below, set to her first single from the album, “Automatic,” you can see Lambert’s many wardrobe changes, from bustiers and bandannas to blinged-out cowboy boots and sexy silver dresses. And Lambert and her stylist talked to PEOPLE exclusively about their inspiration for the shoot.
“After living with the music for a while, I knew that this photo shoot had to be something a little different,” Lambert (who wore everything from vintage Jean Paul Gaultier to Stop Staring to Frye boots) says. “I really got involved in the creative process this time around. I felt like I really had a vision for what I wanted all of the set-ups to be. I love how they all turned out.”
For stylist Tiffany Gifford, that meant incorporating the vibe of the album into the many looks Lambert would wear. “For the album shoot for Miranda, I was lucky enough to hear some of the music beforehand and I knew Miranda wanted to incorporate Airstream [trailers] and platinum. The immediate vibe I got was retro, not completely literal, but with a modern vibe,” Gifford explains. “Just some of the references in the songs — Priscilla Presley, Airstreams, Marilyn Monroe — just like it should be a modern pinup vibe.”
And despite the retro-glam influence, Lambert’s country roots were never far from view. “We had plenty of boots on the shoot!” Gifford says. “My definite faves were a pair of Miranda’s boots from her line she had made in platinum and I had them blinged.”
