Release Date: November 13th 2018 Photographer: Art Streiber
On Tuesday, Variety Magazine released their latest cover star for the November 13th issue and it's our girl Lady Gaga! For the photoshoot, Lady Gaga wears a single look that she revealed the importance of inside the magazine. The photoshoot was done in the garage of Lady Gaga's Malibu mansion just a week before she was forced to evacuate from the California wildfires.
On the cover, Mother Monster is shown simply in a men's button-up shirt. The shirt is actually from A Star Is Born, worn by Bradley Cooper's character Jackson Maine. Variety revealed that "Gaga swiped several souvenirs from the set. She’s the owner of Ally’s songbook and a bottle of Mr. Bubble from a bathtub love scene, in addition to Jackson’s shirt."
“I just wanted to have a piece of him with me,” says Gaga, who is engaged to talent agent Christian Carino. “This is very precious to me. These are heirlooms, or they will be heirlooms one day. They are things I will want to show my little girl or little boy and say, ‘Here they are. You can touch them.’ I want them to have a close, tangible, poetic experience with the film the way I have.”
The taupe collared shirt was created by Runabout Goods in Los Angeles, as one of the five pieces made for Bradley Cooper and commissioned by costume designer Erin Benach. Jackson wears the shirt while performing "Shallow" for the first time with Ally as well as on their motorcycle trip to Arizona, stopping in a diner to write "Look What I Found." Unfortunately, the shirt is custom so it is not available for purchase.
Finishing her look, Lady Gaga wore knee high black stretch boots from Schutz. Schutz describes the 3.5 inch heeled boots as "a must-have staple item for your fall wardrobe. The stiletto heels on these over-the-knee boots can make any outfit look sexy" and that they do! Perfectly paired with her men's shirt, the "S-Daiana" pointed toe boots are sold for $360 here.
In some of the shots, Lady Gaga can be seen with an added black hat. According to Gladys Tamez, (the millinery behind the iconic Joanne pink hat), she is wearing their "Aries" hat in black however her grosgrain band has been swapped out with a chain. The original three inch brimmed hat is available, also in white, for $1,150 here.
