Date: August 31st 2018 Location: Venice Film Festival (Palazzo del Cinema di Venezia), Italy
A star really was born today at the Venice Film Festival! Taking the red carpet as a true movie star, Lady Gaga glowed in Maison Valentino with glam by the Haus of Gaga. And I couldn't have dreamed of a better look for the special occasion!
Lady Gaga's gown is look 35 from Valentino's Fall 2018 Couture Collection that director Pierpaolo Piccioli titled the "Flamingo." The collection was described by Piccioli as “Renaissance meets Versailles meets ’60s whatever” but it's really even more fabulous. The collection features this dream of a dress, which is what a couture collection should be.
The off-the-shoulder gown is made of tiered layers of pale pink ostrich feathers and finished with a train flowing just behind. Check out his original sketch of Lady Gaga's design on the left!
The dress is so elegant it needs little to no accessorizing which was done perfectly by her glam team who kept her hair in an amazing updo and her makeup light yet beautiful. All she accessorized with were some amazing diamond earrings. Lady Gaga's teardrop diamond earrings are from Chopard - a Switzerland based jewelry and watch company established in the 1860's - featuring small diamond studs with dangling teardrops beneath.
Unfortunately, Lady Gaga's shoes were never visible beneath the feathers of her dress.
