NEW YORK - Shoppers entering the flagship Barneys New York store during the holidays will go through the mouth of a giant monster-like creature in the spirit of Lady Gaga, as the retailer transforms one of its entrances leading to Gaga's Workshop.

The store's famous Madison Avenue windows, meanwhile, will be a collage of music, fashion, astrology and the elements.

Barneys gave details Wednesday about its previously announced partnership with the superstar.

She and her team will decorate and fill the entire fifth floor with products, totaling 5,550 square feet (515 sq. meters). There will be eight mini stores inside for candy, toys, apparel and accessories, holiday, collectables and a media library.

The "boudoir" area, featuring, candles and cosmetics will mimic a giant wig, and the jewelry shop will be carved from a spider.

The opening is planned for just before midnight on Nov. 21.
