Academy Award-nominee Lady Gaga has arrived at the 2023 Oscars red carpet in a black Versace gown and if it looks like you just saw it — you did. It was unveiled on the runway by supermodel Gigi Hadid a mere three days ago.
The pop star wore the edgy and timeless ball gown from Versace’s Fall/Winter 2023 collection on the carpet featuring a sheer corseted paneled bodice with a high illusion neckline, long sleeves and a pointed bust. The gown extended into a belted A-line skirt worn low on her hips which slung back even lower in the back.
The actor and songstress topped off her high-fashion ensemble with Tiffany & Co. jewels, including an archival platinum and diamond necklace dating back to 1955, she also wore Tiffany & Co. diamond studs, a Tiffany Victoria Mixed Cluster diamond bracelet and an Etoile Five-Row Band Ring with Pavé Diamonds.
Lady Gaga showed off her darker roots with her hair styled in a sleek French braid updo. The House of Gucci star maintained the dramatic theme of her ensemble with her glam, sporting a black-rimmed smokey eye and a statement-making red lip.
The “Donatella” singer has been nominated for Best Original Song alongside her co-producers BloodPop and Benjamin Rice for her highly celebrated track “Hold My Hand” featured on the Top Gun: Maverick original soundtrack.
The Haus Labs founder was nominated alongside Diane Warren’s song “Applause” from Tell It Like a Woman, M.M. Keeravaani and Chandrabose’s “Naatu Naatu” from RRR, Ryan Lott, David Byrne, and Mitski’s “This Is a Life” from Everything, Everywhere All At Once, and Rihanna’s “Lift Me Up” featured from Black Panther: Wakanda Forever.
Described as a “love letter to the world,” the score played in the feature film also includes additional production and instrumentals by Harold Faltermeyer and Hans Zimmer.
“I’m so grateful to Tom and Hans and Joe for this opportunity — and it’s been a beautiful experience working with them. Me, BloodPop, Ben Rice and everyone else who worked on it with us are so excited to share it with you,” Gaga shared on Instagram.
With her particular knack for music in film, Gaga has acquired quite the impressive list of accolades throughout her career, beginning with her first Oscars Best Original Song nomination in 2016 for “Til It Happens To You,” featured in the documentary The Hunting Ground. In 2019, Mother Monster took home the gold statue for her Best Original Song, “Shallow,” featured in A Star Is Born.
“When I wrote this song for Top Gun: Maverick, I didn’t even realize the multiple layers it spanned across the film’s heart, my own psyche, and the nature of the world we’ve been living in,” said Gaga. “I’ve been working on it for years, perfecting it, trying to make it ours.”
