Long gone are the days of the meat dress.

Lady Gaga is bringing her high-fashion A-game to the red carpet. The musician turned actress has been taking her film A Star Is Born around the festival circuit. She's already garnering awards buzz for her portrayal of the young singer Ally who falls in love with her mentor, Jackson Maine (Bradley Cooper, who also directed and co-wrote).

After making her big Venice Film Festival entrance in August — cruising in wearing a black mini dress and holding a single red flower — Gaga has worn top-tier labels from Valentino to Armani Prive for her premieres, thanks to stylists Tom Eerebout and Sandra Amador. Known for her wild outfits and wigs as a pop star, Gaga the movie star seems to be going for a more classic look and basing her recent press ensembles on old Hollywood fashion, with bold lips, textured gowns and styled wet curls.

"We definitely took a more classic approach but made sure that there was still an element of fantasy involved. We wanted everything to be very true to her and her artistry," her stylists tell The Hollywood Reporter.

Here's a look at what the reborn star has been donning for her press tour so far.

 

 

  • A Jonathan Simkhai Entrance

    The star-to-be made a splash by debuting at the Venice Film Festival in a boat, wearing a black minidress by Jonathan Simkhai and a single red flower. She later posed with a black Celine tote (a first look at Hedi Slimane's designs). 

  • Marilyn Monroe Inspired

    She channeled the classic American movie star Marilyn Monroe at a Venice photo call on Aug. 31, wearing a low-cut, flowing white dress by Azzedine Alaia paired with Gianvito Rossi shoes.

     
  • Valentino's Flamingo

    For her big debut, Gaga donned a large feathered Valentino gown with earrings by Chopard and makeup by Sarah Nicole Tanno. Worn to the Star Is Born Venice premiere on Aug. 31, the dress is designed by Pierpaolo Piccioli and fittingly named "Flamingo." 

    Her stylists call this the most magical moment of the year for them. "It started storming. The backdrop, the rain and lightning, the energy – it was so special for all of us to experience together. It was her very first movie premiere and the excitement and energy surrounding the event was electrifying," say Eerebout and Amador.

  • Jean Paul Gaultier Glam

    It was another Marilyn moment for the Born This Way singer, who wore a Jean Paul Gaultier and Naked Wardrobe outfit: a cutout piece with a thick white coat, red lips and rectangular shades. 

  • Victoria Beckham Vibes

    Gaga wore a one-sleeve Victoria Beckham dress with her hair pulled back — paired with Ana Khouri diamond Lolanda earrings and Simplicity bracelet in Toronto.

  • Silver Sparkle

    For Entertainment Weekly's party at the Toronto International Film Festival, Gaga went glam with a silver sparkling slit dress — sleeveless — with strappy heels, dangling fringe earrings and pink lips. She kept her hair up in a slick wave at the Thompson Hotel event on Sept. 8.

  • Ralph and Russo Red

    For her A Star Is Born press conference at TIFF Bell Lightbox, Gaga sported a burgundy velvet, one-shoulder ready-to-wear gown by Ralph and Russo. "We wanted to channel some old Hollywood glamour but also let her be her. Each look was so different, but in my opinion felt right for each moment," stylists Amador and Eerebout add.

  • Armani Disguise

    Gaga wore a veiled, form-fitting ensemble by Armani Prive to her Toronto premiere on Sept. 9. On the red carpet, she dramatically pulled back her veil, wearing it as a shoulder piece. The singer accessorized with a sequined hat, blue eyeshadow and dangling Chopard earrings. 

  • Ralph and Russo Round Two

    Gaga attended the Audi Canada and Links Of London's post-screening event at the Masonic Temple at TIFF that night. She chose her second Ralph and Russo gown of the evening — black velvet couture with a tad of pink flair. 

  • Old Hollywood

    While attending the Sept. 9 premiere of her film at TIFF, Gaga posed in a strappy grey dress from Armani, with the same black hat, and Chopard earrings and black Le Silla pumps — again reminiscent of classic movie stars.  

  • Angelic Iris van Herpen

    Gaga whirled in a wispy aqua Iris van Herpen gown at TIFF, plus Ana Khouri's diamond contour earrings. It's one of her only cool colored gowns of the tour thus far; she's been keeping it to blacks, whites, silvers, pinks and reds (the Hollywood palette, sans gold).

  • Custom Givenchy

    Bringing A Star is Born to the states, Gaga shone in custom Givenchy and Bulgari jewelry for the Los Angeles premiere. The Clare Waight Keller gown featured a shimmering train that matched her now-silver hair. 

    Her shoes were Ruthie Davis' Award Season Heels in silver metallic kidskin from the Spring/Summer 2019 collection ($550, available in December at Fred Segal Melrose and ruthiedavis.com). 

     

  • A Marie Antoinette Look

    Gaga stepped out in London on Sept. 27 looking like an 18th century aristocrat or, perhaps, Marie Antoinette herself, with an organza jacquard lace Alexander McQueen gown. The ruffled collar, plus the corset dress with gold and pearl embroidery, mimicked historical royalty. Added on: Anabela Chan pearl constellation earrings.

  • Her Paris Fashion Week Surprise

    Stepping away briefly from her press duties, the singer sported Maison Alaïa while popping into Hedi Slimane's Spring 2019 debut for Celine at Paris Fashion Week. She was already in Europe for the London premiere, so why not make the most of her visit? 

    At night, she swapped out her black for more black — this time going with Alex Perry and Acne Studios — wearing a leather jacket, fishnets and sunnies to a Parisian night club. 

  • For 'The Late Show'

    Gaga appeared on The Late Show With Stephen Colbert, during which she condemned Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh by calling the hearings "one of the most upsetting things I’ve ever witnessed.” She donned a strapless tropical number with velvet bow from Marc Jacobs ($2,800) with her hair in a high bun for the show.

  • The Menswear-Inspired Power Suit

    All of her red carpet looks have been radiating Hollywood glam. But on Oct. 15, for Elle’s 25th annual Women in Hollywood event, Gaga chose an oversized Marc Jacobs suit. Why did she opt for a menswear-inspired look instead of her usual sparkly style? Feminism.

    She said she tried on several dresses from Dior, Rodarte and Calvin Klein in preparation for the gala, but chose the power suit because “I felt like me.” Gaga wanted to prove that women in Hollywood are not just “objects” to entertain others like a "beauty pageant," but have their own voices to speak out.

    “As I tried on dress after dress today, getting ready for this event, one tight corset after another, one heel after another, a diamond, a feather, thousands of beaded fabrics in the most beautiful silks in the world … to be honest, I felt sick to my stomach,” Gaga said at the ceremony. After trying on 10 dresses with a "sad feeling" in her heart that "all that would matter was what I wore on this red carpet," she saw an oversized Marc Jacobs suit in the corner. She put it on and began to cry. "In this suit, I felt like me today. In this suit, I felt the truth of who I am well up in my gut."

  • Nude Dior

    At the SAG-AFTRA Foundation Gala on Nov. 8, Gaga spoke up about suicide and masochistic behavior in a lengthy 23-minute speech. For the occasion, she stepped out in a nude Dior gown with plenty of tulle. To avoid being washed out, the honoree attended with a slightly uneven spray tan, along with her grown-out bleach blonde hair.
