PARIS, France – Anyone who’s been paying attention to 2022’s awards season knows about the effort Lady Gaga put into her House of Gucci performance. The multi – talented performer went method to play former socialite Patrizia Reggiani earning a well – deserved Screen Actors Guild Award nomination in the process. Given her all – in take on the character, Gaga was guaranteed to bring drama to the SAG ceremony, so when she hit the event’s silver carpet in a white Armani Prive column gown with a sequin bodice she didn’t disappoint.
Keenly aware of their cinema and fashion history, Gaga and her stylist Sandra Amador and Tom Erebout never miss an opportunity to reference, especially when promoting an acting role. Throughout the press tour for House of Gucci, she’s doubled down on what she called ‘painful Italian glamour’, wearing pieces designed by current Gucci designer Alessandro Michele or houses that originated in Italy. For the London premiere in November, that meant wearing a look that debuted on Michele’s ‘Love Parade’ runway days earlier, but in Milan, she switched gears and pulled out the 90s Versace Haute Couture.
Most celebrities would find it hard to top such memorable style statements, but Gaga’s couture SAG look was appropriately over the top. Worn with sky – high white platforms and a movie star – worthy Tiffany & Co. diamond necklace her gown echoed the style of classic Hollywood bombshells like Marilyn Monroe and Lana Turner. The vintage vibe was further accentuated by the stylized cat – eye created by makeup artist Sarah Tanno and the platinum Veronica Lake – esque waves hair stylist Federic Aspiras dreamed up for the evening. A winning look that captured the camp fashion fantasy of Ridley Scott’s film, it was the perfect choice for an evening centered on performance.
