Lady Gaga arrives in Venice for A Star Is Born world premiere
She’s ridden a dolly into an elevator, scooted through a parking lot in a shopping cart, galloped across the AMAs red carpet atop a mechanical horse, and even flown the length of a New York City building in an airborne dress, but now Lady Gaga — queen of pop and ridiculous forms of transportation — is taking to the water for her next mobility venture. Arriving Thursday in the Italian city of Venice ahead of Friday’s world premiere for her upcoming movie A Star Is Born, Gaga posed for a diva-sized photo op while riding a boat through the Adriatic Sea. Dive into the delectably extra photos in the gallery ahead.
Gaga sails through Venice like a movie star
Back up, Titanic: there’s a new Heart of the Ocean in town, and her name is Lady Gaga.
Cruising with Christian
Gaga wasn’t alone on her latest venture, as her boyfriend-agent Christian Carino (pictured on the singer’s left) joined her for the ride. Earlier this week, the pair was spotted visiting the Louvre in Paris alongside Gaga’s mother, Cynthia Germanotta.
Making pre-Oscar waves in Venice
Gaga hitched her ride on one of the city’s famous water taxis one day before A Star Is Born — a likely Oscar contender — holds its world premiere as part of the Venice International Film Festival.
Throwback on the water
Donning an icy blonde hairstyle in the vein of Hollywood stars from the ’30s and ’40s, Gaga made her mark on the Oscar-positioning festival with a fabulous callback to stars of yesteryear like Judy Garland and Janet Gaynor — both of whom starred in prior iterations of A Star Is Born.
Splashing through fall festival season
A Star Is Born will screen out-of-competition as one of Venice’s special presentations, though it will compete for the People’s Choice Award — long seen as a key stepping stone for films in the hunt for the best picture Oscar — at the Toronto International Film Festival next week.
A Star Is Born is in theaters beginning Oct. 5. The film’s original soundtrack — featuring contributions from Mark Ronson, Jason Isbell, Lukas Nelson, Diane Warren, and DJ White Shadow — is available now for pre-order.
