Honored for being a Women in Hollywood by ELLE Magazine on the November 2018 cover, Lady Gaga attended their 25th anniversary event. For her evening, Lady Gaga was honored and gave an absolutely stunning speech in an oversized men's suit - a shocking fashion choice for the evening that she described in her speech.
"As I tried on dress after dress today, getting ready for this event, one tight corset after another, one heel after another, a diamond, a feather, thousands of beaded fabrics in the most beautiful silks in the world... to be honest, I felt sick to my stomach. And I asked myself, what does it really mean to be a woman in Hollywood? We are not just objects to entertain the world," Lady Gaga began.
"So after trying on ten or so dresses, with a sad feeling in my heart that what would matter was what I wore to this red carpet, I saw an oversized Marc Jacobs suit very quietly in the corner. I put it on to a resounding view of eyes glaring at me in confusion," she continued.
"In this suit, I felt like me today. In this suit, I felt the truth of who I am well up in my gut. As a sexual assault survivor by someone in the entertainment industry, as a woman who is still not brave enough to say his name, as a woman who lives with chronic pain, as a woman who was conditioned at a very young age to listen to what men told me to do, I decided today to take the power back. Today I wear the pants," she declared.
Lady Gaga's empowering Marc Jacobs suit is fresh off the Spring 2019 Ready-to-Wear runway which just debuted on September 12th! From look 6, Lady Gaga wears an oversized single-breasted blazer with matching high-waisted and pleated trousers. Unfortunately, the collection is so new that the suit is not yet available for purchase online.
Giving her look a feminine twist, Lady Gaga kept her self bare beneath the suit and opted not to style with a belt as it was shown.
Lady Gaga's shoes were hardly pictured but it is safe to assume she wore some kind of sky-high heel or boot to keep her oversized trousers from dragging beneath her.

For the skin, Sarah started with a mix of Marc Jacobs Beauty's "Shameless" Foundation.

Sarah then bronzed the cheeks with Marc Jacobs Beauty's "O!Mega Bronze" Perfect Tan. This super-sized bronzer is available in two different shades, each available for $ 49 here. Sarah did not reveal which shade she used on Mother Monster.
To set her skin, Sarah used "Finish Line Perfecting Coconut Setting Powder" for an invisible and seamless finish. Using coconut and sea butter to blur and perfect, it is available for $44 here.
For her eyes, Sarah started by mixing the taupe shade and the silver shade of the Smartorial 760 "Eye-Conic Multi-Finish Eyeshadow Palette" to pick up the color of her suit and her green eyes. The palette is sold for $49 here. Sarah then tapped "See-Quins Glam Glitter Eyeshadow" in the shade Topaz Flash in the center of the lids. The eyeshadow is limited edition from the Fall 2018 runway and is available for $28 here.
She then rimmed her eyes with "Highliner Gel Eye Crayon" in the deepest, shiniest black Blacquer, available for $25 here. And her eyes were finished with the Haus of Gaga's favorite mascara - Marc Jacobs Beauty's "Velvet Noir." The major volume mascara is available in a full size for $26 here or a "Major Lashes On The Go" travel size for $14 here.
For her lips, Sarah tapped on the "New Nudes Sheer Gel Lipstick" in Moody Margot 106, which she then blotted for the barely-there finish. Get your own tube of this sheer, chic, and creamy lipstick for $30 here.
For her hair, Frederic Aspiras revealed his techniques for the perfect slicked do. Get this shiny wet look by using a spray gel at the roots and lots of non-greasy shine spay on top that smooth shiny finish. Spray a toothbrush with spray gel to maintain the edges and smooth out any flyaways.
