Throughout the award season, the trophy for the best actress category has gone in favor of either a Glenn Close or an Olivia Colman, winner for best actress at the Oscars last night by the way, leaving the Critics’ Choice awards the only spot Gaga tied up in the best actress win with Glenn. Despite her missing out on all the awards in the acting department for ‘A Star is Born’, Gaga has proven from one show to the next that the red carpet is indeed her own and no trophy can match up to the extravaganza she brings on board.
As the Oscars drew near, lot of Gaga red carpet fans anticipated for white gown to crown her best picture red carpet wins so far, but the ‘A Star is Born’ actress together with her team went for the unpredictable color ‘black’, which has not been a part of her wardrobe choices, since the onset of the movie’s press tours and film festivals attendance through to the award season period. Her team explained the choice of an Alexander McQueen black gown as something for the grand finale of the award season to pull up the unexpected, “The element of surprise is so powerful – what makes a red carpet exciting is keeping everything unexpected.”
On the neck of Gaga glittered a yellow diamond necklace from Tiffany & Co, which comprised one of the largest yellow diamonds in the world. The necklace is the same thing the one’s lived fashion icon and Oscar winner Audrey Hepburn wore in the promotional pictures for Breakfast at Tiffany’s back in 1961. “Diamonds carry so much energy within them. It was special to have one with so much history for a truly magical night,” Gaga’s styling duo Sandra Amador and Tom Eerebout told Vogue.
Not only did Lady Gaga go for the sleeveless black gown and historic jewel, but also a black gloves and sleek up, which also emulate Holly Golightly’s signature look in Blake Edwards’ 1961 adaptation of Truman Capote’s book. This whole tribute to past historic figures in Hollywood is not the first time Gaga has done so far in the award season as her Golden Globes appearance was an ode to Judy Garland and Critics’ Choice awards blond hairstyle was a tribute to the 50s fashion sensation Marilyn Monroe.
With the award season finally on a close, her styling team credits her as the narrative they’ve had the privilege of working with, “Lady Gaga is the narrative. We have had so much fun doing such drastically different looks while remaining true to her.”
Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper took home the Oscar award for best original song ‘Shallow’ making Gaga the only person in history to win an Oscar, Grammy, BAFTA and Golden Globe in a single year.
