Lady Gaga may have skipped the star-studded Versace show last week, but it seems she had her eye on the catwalk as she showed up last night in the catwalk look just three days after the Oscars red carpet unveiling.
Gaga, who was nominated for her fourth Oscar for her original song “Hold My Hand.” Top Gun: Maverick Soundtrack, arrived on the red carpet in a plunging black dress from Versace’s AW23 collection, which was being shown in Beverly Hills on Thursday night.
All the big names in film and fashion attended the show, with the exception of the pop queen herself. Miley Cyrus, Cher, Dua Lipa, Elton John and Anne Hathaway watched, as did models Kendall Jenner, Em Rata, Gigi Hadid and more swept down the runway in a plethora of black outfits.
One of the most recent looks was a mesh and satin ensemble modeled by Gigi Hadid, with boning at the stomach and a sheer, almost backless, low-cut rear that reveals the top of the buttocks.
This was Gaga’s pick for the 2023 Oscars, which she paired with similarly striking dark makeup like the Black Swan-esque runway glam, as well as a bright red lip and a selection of Tiffany & Co. jewelry.
The Applause singer accidentally went viral for her time on the red carpet, although it had nothing to do with her outfit. As Gaga walked away from Step and Repeat, she spotted a photographer taking a fall and immediately turned to help him up.
During the ceremony, Gaga stripped off her extravagant gown and makeup to sing her song “Hold My Hand,” which she performed faceless in a simple t-shirt and jeans.
The track failed to win the Best Original Song award, which instead went to Naatu Naatu from the Telugu film RRR, but Gaga was greeted in good faith by fellow nominee Rihanna, who also performed at the ceremony but went home empty-handed society held handed over.
This is the fifth Oscars red carpet that Gaga has walked and her second in Versace. She has previously appeared in 2014, 2015, 2016 and 2019 wearing Versace, Alaïa, Brandon Maxwell and Alexander McQueen respectively. In 2019, she took home the Oscar for Best Original Song for her and Bradley Cooper’s track “Shallow” from A Star Is Born.
She was also nominated for Best Actress that year, but was beaten by Olivia Colman, who respectfully blew Gaga a kiss during her speech.
