A style star is reborn
Her role in Bradley Cooper’s A Star Is Born marks Lady Gaga‘s first foray into leading lady-dom, and the singer-turned-actress is certainly dressing for the occasion. A style chameleon ever since she first burst onto the zeitgeist in a homemade disco-mirrored bra, she has embraced this new phase in her career through her wardrobe, going full Hollywood glam on one press tour stop after another (starting with the film’s August premiere at the Venice Film Festival, pictured). Check out everything she’s worn on the Oscar-nominated music drama’s journey, ahead.
At the 91st annual Academy Awards — Feb. 24, 2019
Gaga sartorially referenced Old Hollywood throughout the A Star Is Born press tour, but she saved Holly Golightly for last.

At the 76th Annual Golden Globe Awards — Jan. 6, 2019

At ELLE's 25th annual Women In Hollywood celebration — Oct. 15, 2018
For ELLE’s Women in Hollywood celebration, Gaga delivered an empowering speech in this exaggeratedly proportioned Marc Jacobs suit, which she chose after trying on “ten or so dresses,” she recalled at the podium. “This was an oversized men’s suit made for a woman. Not a gown. And then I began to cry. In this suit, I felt like me today,” she said. “Today, I wear the pants.”
