Lady Gaga says she wore ‘bulletproof dress’ to President Joe Biden Inauguration

Lady Gaga has revealed she wore a "bulletproof dress" to President Joe Biden’s Inauguration in January.

The Poker Face songstress, real name Stefani Joanne Angelina Germanotta, wore a custom-made Schiaparelli dress inspired by the American flag that consisted of a navy cashmere jacket, a voluminous red skirt and a large gold brooch of a dove.

The 35-year-old pop superstar has now revealed the ensemble was also bulletproof

Speaking in a video filmed by British Vogue entitled Life in Looks, the star revealed: “I wore this Schiaparelli design for the inauguration, and nobody knows this, but this is a bulletproof dress.”

Gaga performed at the ceremony back in January, singing the Star Spangled Banner moments before Vice President Kamala Harris was sworn in at the United States Capitol in Washington DC.

She went on to explain that prior to performing, a young man asked her if she was nervous. And while she admittedly was, she believed that “fashion really can give you wings like a dove.”

She added: “When I saw that golden dove, I just knew that this was the right piece, and I knew Schiaparelli being an Italian fashion house, it was something that I really really wanted to do for my heritage as an Italian-American woman that would be singing for president 45 to be leaving and to invite president 46 into office.”

The video was a follow up to her British Vogue cover shoot that was released last week in which she said the inauguration was “one of the proudest days of my whole life".

“Like many people in America, I felt a deep fear when Trump was president, and ushering 45 out and 46 in is something I’ll be able to tell my children all about.”

The actress and singer plays Patrizia Reggiani in Sir Ridley Scott’s crime drama House of Gucci, a socialite who had her fashion dynasty heir husband Maurizio Gucci murdered in a case that scandalised Italy.

It is Gaga’s first film role since her Oscar-nominated turn in 2018’s A Star Is Born and trailers have featured her speaking with an accent.

The Academy Award winner spoke to Vogue about her upcoming role in the Ridley Scott movie.

She explained: “It is three years since I started working on it and I will be fully honest and transparent: I lived as her (Reggiani) for a year and a half. And I spoke with an accent for nine months of that. Off camera, I never broke. I stayed with her.”
