Release Date: September 12th 2019 Photographer: Daniel Jackson Photographed: date unknown
With the release of her debut beauty line, HAUS LABORATORIES, Lady Gaga is on the cover of Allure's Best of Beauty issue for October 2019! Photographed by Daniel Jackson, Lady Gaga stuns throughout the pages of the magazine in several amazing looks - all showcasing her makeup products! And thankfully Allure has credited every look, styled by Nicola Formichetti!
On the cover, Lady Gaga poses with killer braids by Frederic Aspiras in a stunning gold mesh headwrap as a dress. It can just barely be seen in the cover photo but can be seen clearly in the behind-the-scenes video released by Allure. The headwrap is from self-taught London designer Julia Clancey known for her luxury and timeless glamour.
The "Slinky Gold Headwrap" is available for $450 here.
She then added an incredible structured skirt across her shoulder that can be seen in other shots from the cover look. The skirt is from celebrity favorite Laurel Dewitt who describes herself as "the Queen of Chain & Metal" who built her brand by reimagining the distinction between clothing and accessories.
Shown as the very first look when Googling the collection, the sculpted skirt is made of gold and crystals from the Fall 2018 "The Queen" collection. Unfortunately, it does not appear to be available for purchase however purchases can be made by contacting the designer here.
Lady Gaga was later photographed close up with a pair of earrings added to her look. Her earrings are from Erickson Beamon, a jewelry brand created by Karen Erickson and Eric Beamon of Detroit, who she has worn throughout her career in interviews, music videos, and candid outings (see left). Allure credited the earrings to Erickson Beamon but let me tell you.. finding a photo of the exact pair was a hunt!
However, I eventually tracked down a photoshoot for Hot-Blanc Magazine that fully showcases the earrings - along with many other pairs. The oversized beauties combine gold hardware and crystals in an angular flower motif.
They are not available for purchase online - in fact it appears they do not even have a website! Some designs are available for purchase through outside retailers like The Real Real and Bergdorf Goodman but they also have a New York showroom.
Also in the behind-the-scenes video, LG can be seen draping in jewels that didn't quite make it into the photos. Allure did not credit them and they are hard to distinguish from the video so I am still working on tracking down the exact pieces. If you have a tip, tweet it to us @WhatGagaWore!
On her eyes, I believe she wears the Glam Attack, all over liquid shimmer, in champagne with multi-colored peal "Aphrodite," available in the Haus of Goddess collection for $49 here.
On her lips, she wears RIP Lip Liner in the neutral peach shade "En Pointe" available only in the Haus of Chained Ballerina collection for $49 here. She then layers on Le Riot Lip Gloss in "Entranced," a sheer gloss with light pink pearl, available in the Haus of Rose B*tch collection for $49 here.
Allure also revealed some of the tools Sarah Tanno had with her for the show including large bucket containing ice, a ReFa face roller, and a couple of under-eye patches, all for optimum depuffing. Tanno also had a spacey Yusong facial massager on hand, which has a heat setting that’s designed to accelerate serum penetration in addition to improving circulation.
