Date: August 30th 2018 Location: Venice, Italy
Arriving for the debut of A Star Is Born at the 75th Annual Venice Film Festival, Lady Gaga changed looks while in flight into a beautiful black cocktail dress but kept her accessories the same. She then boarded a water taxi to take her to her hotel and gave paparazzi some of the best photographs I've ever seen of her!
Lady Gaga's dress is from Jonathan Simkhai, and to my knowledge is the very first time she has worn the designer. Established in 2010, Simkhai provides luxury ready-to-wear for the modern woman. The core aesthetic philosophy plays with the tension of feminine strength and sensuality; this is reflected in the employment of customized fabrics, romantic detailing, linear lines, and contoured silhouettes.
Lady Gaga's dress is exactly that with a high slit and low neckline paired with silver metal rings beneath the bust. Simkhai revealed on Instagram Lady Gaga was "in the latest of the collection" and it is nowhere to be found online meaning it is from an upcoming 2019 collection. Therefore, it is not yet available for purchase.
Next, Lady Gaga continued with her black pumps from Paris. Lady Gaga has many pairs from many designers but I believe these are the "Romy 100" in black patent leather from Jimmy Choo. They are available for $650 here and feature a 100mm heel.
Finally, Lady Gaga carried her beautiful new bag from Paris. The bag is a collaboration between Hedi Slimane (of Saint Laurent) and Celine, set to debut soon, t Lady Gaga is officially the first person in the world to display the bag and her bag features a tiny "LG" monogram in gold lettering to match the gold hardware of the design!
Shoutout to Lady Gaga's styling team of Tom Eerebout and Sandra Amador for another stunning look!
For her eyes, Sarah lined them with Highliner gel eye crayon in "Blacquer" - the deepest, shinest black. It is available for $25 here. Sarah then layered on coats of the Haus of Gaga's favorite mascara - Velvet Noir by Marc Jacobs Beauty. This major volumizing mascara is available in full size for $26 here or in a smaller travel size for $14 here.
For her lips, Lady Gaga wore a bright berry rouge shade of Le Marc Lip Crème. The exact shade is "Boy Gorgeous 222" and it is available for $30 here.
