Lady Gaga rocks purple Gucci for the London ‘House of Gucci’ premiere

House of Gucci UK Premiere

Father, son and House of Gucci! The promotional tour for House of Gucci, the true story of the murder of Maurizio Gucci, is finally here. Last night was the big London premiere and almost everyone wore Gucci, of course. I wonder what Gucci head designer Alessandro Michele thinks about all of this – considering his tacky aesthetic, he probably enjoys it. And Salma Hayek is in the film and she’s married to the CEO of Kering, which owns Gucci. So it seems like this film has the complete blessing of the fashion house, although perhaps not the blessing of the actual Gucci family.

In any case, let’s enjoy the fashion! Gaga wore this vibrant purple Gucci gown with long, sheer panels which she kept throwing out dramatically. The dress photographed well, and I enjoy her stockings too. Very rock ‘n roll. I don’t really care for the platform heels but whatever. Her makeup was pretty good and this is one of her better blonde wigs, even with the bangs.

Salma Hayek and Jared Leto both wore Gucci too, which is no surprise given their respective connections to the fashion house. I liked Salma’s dress, it’s not bad at all. Meanwhile, Adam Driver looked like a banker who accidentally wandered onto the carpet and decided to pose for cheeseball photos with Gaga. Some of these pics would make great album covers.

    Her face has changed again, no? Lips maybe?

    And ugh, Jared Leto.

    • Sally says:

      Seconding the “ugh Jared Leto”. Also I refuse to watch a “Italians speak faulty English amongst each other” movie, but I do like Gaga’s look and the stockings are awesome.

      • Léna says:

        Agreed about the accent, I watched the trailer twice within a week (went to the theatre and had no choice) and had enough of their voices !!
        I also like her look; but her face is distracting

      • AnnaKist says:

        The stockings are fantastic! Many years ago when I visited the US I bought a pair of similar stockings. I’d never seen anything like them before. I wore them to a couple of functions and they were a huge hit. Inevitably they wore out, so I used the scraps of them to tie up my tomatoes to their stakes! I love her look. It’s very much Me, but I know I’d be tripping over non-stop with that train. Bleeehh, Leto.

      • AlpineWitch says:

        As an Italian who has to apologise for her accent after almost 20 years in UK, I don’t see/hear a problem there.

        If the movie was in Italian with subtitles, nobody would watch it. If it was in American English it’d be more silly than what they did.

        To be honest, you either never care about accents or you do (K. Costner as Robin Hood? Mel Gibson as William Wallace? List is endless…

    • Ella says:

      Lips and bucal fat removal. Sad 🙁

      • Léna says:

        Oh I see the bucal fat removal now !!

      • Jan90067 says:

        In another 20 yrs or so she’s gonna wish she still had that fat in her cheeks!

        And yes, the lips are blown up. She looks like a cartoon character now.

      • BothSidesNow says:

        @ Ella, I don’t see it. I think I don’t know how to identify the procedure. Though, it is Gaga being Gaga and loving her look/dress and her ensemble that many have not been able to do and not apologize. I give you Cher as an example during her Bob Mackie days!!! Love!!

    • Jane says:

      I can’t tell her and Billie Eilish apart any more.

      • observer says:

        That’s a bit unkind to Billie, I’m not a Billie stan but I relate to her on a few topics that she deals with personally such as body image issues (mine were huge at Billie’s age– I can only imagine what fame would have done to my mind) and also her tourettes (I have a related condition).

        I don’t think we should be comparing a 35 year old woman to someone who isn’t even 20. Especially when both Billie and Gaga have openly struggled with body image issues.

        Yes, IK, we’re on celebitchy. And Gaga did have work done– and I understand why, but it still makes me sad for her. I could see myself ending up in the same place.

        editing to clarify: I’m not against plastic surgery, but when body dysmorphia is in the mix it’s a whole other can of worms. I’ve seen some of my childhood/preteen idols (like Tori Amos) just totally wreck their looks because of their self image issues and I really empathize with the kind of feelings and thoughts that lead to that place. And I’m not even famous, I barely leave the house or wear make up these days, but I’d be lying if I said that if I was famous I probably wouldn’t be in their camp.

      • Missjo says:

        Nothing like Billie, looking more like Donatella Versace before the sun damage and fillers turned her face into that of a spitting image puppey

      • observer says:

        Exactly, MissJoe! If Gaga is melting like this now I wonder what her face will look like in 5-15 years. Like I said, very sad, because Gaga has been open and outspoken about her body image problems throughout most of her career. BDD and surgery/fillers don’t mix.

    • Kcat says:

      Leto looks like he’s had work done—his eyes maybe?

      • BothSidesNow says:

        @ Kcat, it looking like a little too heavy of a hand with high lighting powder/cream, to me.

        And please Jared, you are NOT a rock star or in the same stratosphere. Dress like an actor please. Though the only excuse he may have it to solely promote the film but otherwise, he look likes he has had a massive ego explosion!

    • coolspray says:

      Seconding both of these.

      Who cares about Jared Leto anymore? He peaked in my so called life…

    • Missskitttin says:

      Jared leto looks great!

    • Paige says:

      I’m almost crushed about LG face. One of the best parts about her was how sexy/original she is as an artist, w an equally unique non messed up face. I know it’s been an evolution , but now she looks like every other online influencer.
      Yeah, gonna admit it…feeling defeated

  2. Le Nugget says:

    I would have liked Salma’s dress better without the odd sleeves. Adam is wearing exactly what my dad used to wear when flying standby and hoping to get that first class upgrade. 🤣

    • Noki says:

      Haha and how did that work out for your dad?

    • Jan90067 says:

      For me, with Salma, there is just *so*much* going on around her neck. She has a short neck, so coupled with that huge necklace AND the centered parted hair hanging there, it is *SO* busy there! I think she might’ve looked better if her hair was up or pulled back into a sleek bun/chignon? Just so it wasn’t so “congested” in her clavicle region.

      • AMA1977 says:

        I want to know if the ensemble pic was taken with some kind of crazy lens that makes her breasts look so enormous; they look as big as her head in that shot! This dress isn’t as bad as some others she’s worn recently, but it’s still not right for her shape, IMO. She is a gorgeous woman with a beautiful hourglass figure, and she always looks out of sorts on the red carpet.

        I agree that the sleeves are wrong, and hair back/up would give her some more “height” and more definition between face and dress. This is an okay look for her, but I think that given her position as a famous, beautiful woman who is the wife of the head of the company that owns the fashion house, she should always look fantastic.

      • pollyv says:

        Considering the resources Salma has available to her, I’m always surprised by her bad taste.

    • Kfg says:

      Yeah salmas dress is off on proportion. The waist is too low and the shoulders too high

      • BothSidesNow says:

        As a petite woman she would benefit from her dresses fitted with an empire waist. Plus, she needs to bring her hair up more as she seems to insist on wearing her hair down all the time. Also as a petite person, if she wants to wear large accessories, she needs her clothing to be low-key. Nothing flashy, stick to monochrome colors and simple designers. That’s just my thought!

    • Missskitttin says:

      I worked in the airline industry and had to dress business formal to get on free first class specially transatlantic 🙄

  3. Dlc says:

    Gaga looked incredible. I do wonder how she and Adam driver got along, lol. He gives off such a dower vibe and she is over the top. Salma is a gorgeous woman but I think that dress is tragic.

  4. Noki says:

    Lol Adam Driver really looks like he stayed over from the climate summit and decided to attend a premiere.

  5. Piratewench says:

    This looks like a fun movie. I’m surprised Gaga gets any acting work after her absolutely wooden and boring acting job on American Horror Story: Hotel. Don’t get me wrong, I think she’s great and talented at singing and entertaining. But acting?
    I was excited for her to be on that show but it was a huge let down and she had no range. So I’m not holding out very high hopes for her performance here. Maybe she’s had some lessons and she will prove me wrong!

    • Ann says:

      I didn’t see that, but she was quite good in “A Star Is Born.”

    • paranormalgirl says:

      She did fine in a little film she did a few years back.

    • Div says:

      She actually is the one coming across with the most praise for the film (I like her, but am surprised as Adam and Al are better actors). I mean there are a few people panning her, but that happens with most actors, but the praise seems mostly directed at her while the film is getting mixed results.

    • shanaynay says:

      Agreed! I’m not fond of her acting at all.

  6. Nina says:

    My 25-year-old daughter came over last night wearing those EXACT stockings and platforms! I know, OT, but made me laugh.

  7. Kristen says:

    Adam Driver looks awkward in the pics with her. Why is Gaga so extra with her male co-stars? Driver’s fans are also…something else. I thought his personal life was boring but it turns out his wife-a fellow actor named Joanne Tucker who he met at Juilliard-comes from a family with history of slavery in Bermuda (on her father’s side). She and Driver got married in Bermuda. For someone who hasn’t accomplished much as an actor, his fans are obsessed with her. Her only “major” credits are a cameo on Girls and a small role in a film Driver did called The Report. Back to Gucci: Gaga got praise for her acting but the film is apparently a mess and tonally all over the place.

    • Piratewench says:

      My family also has a history of slavery, from the Alabama branch on my fathers side. I don’t get why this is relevant?
      I volunteer for a nonprofit that works for the black community. I think we have to work to correct the wrongs of our ancestors. But what relevance does that all have in this context? No one can help that their ancestors got up to some bad shit.

    • Kate says:

      You sound more obsessed with her….

    • Div says:

      I have a love/hate thing for Gaga, but I used to be a big fan when I was young. She’s just very over the top with everyone, not just her male co-stars (Bradley Cooper is the exception, but even then that was kind of blown out of proportion…I just remember there was a big thing once of how she was allegedly all over him during a performance the gave (not the one at the Oscars), the media covered it that way, and then someone posted a pic where it was clear she was just adjusting his sound mic which was at his back when it read otherwise like she was feeling his back up lol).

      Yeah, a lot of his stans are…intense…they frankly behave like pop music stans a la Gaga, Taylor, Bey, etc. The film seems very mixed, but in general Gaga and Jared seem to be getting the most attention and in the mix for awards (although some really hate Jared’s performance and far less, but they are still there, Gaga). Anyway, his stans seemed to be in quite a snit about it. And some seem like mad that Driver was apparently goofing off with Gaga and laughing about it in a few photos, as he’s apparently pretty serious for the most part, and others are acting like Gaga forced him because in other pics he looks serious and it’s like…the dude’s a grown as* man. He can tell Gaga he doesn’t want to do cheeseball pics.

      TLDR: Basically, I’m not shocked his fans are weird about his wife like the Benedict Cumberbatch fans used to be weird about his wife.

    • Risia Furio says:

      This sounds suspiciously like the comments that the stalkers that hate and harass his wife leave all over the Internet and submit blind items for. Down to the level of detail. Just google this and you will see the awful reddit sub devoted to shitting on his wife that these people came from.

    • BeanieBean says:

      I can’t see him without also seeing that centaur.

    • Case says:

      “Driver’s fans are…something else.” *proceeds to go into great detail about his wife’s childhood as though you’re not among the fans who are something else.* Please leave his family life alone. What you’re talking about is completely irrelevant to a post about the Gucci premiere and he keeps his private life to himself because of comments like this.

  8. oliphant500 says:

    she’s really reminding me of Donatella Versace here…is it the eye makeup? the hair?

    • Sof says:

      She just launched a makeup collection inspired by Italy, I assume she is wearing that.

    • BeanieBean says:

      That was my first thought, too. I even wondered if she might be wearing Versace, before I remembered she was at the premiere for a movie called The House of Gucci (it’s still early yet).

  9. MarcelMarcel says:

    I just want to take the puff sleeves off Salma Hayek’s dress! Gold is eye catching & beautiful. The way that fabric is draped & showcases her figure is eye catching. The puff sleeve is just distracting visual noise. I think sleeveless would be best. But if she wants a sleeve than make it form fitting so it flows better with the rest of the dress. Aside from that she does look radiant in warm metallics & it’s fun seeing her in one.
    I don’t care about Gaga, she’s derivative and essentially my generation’s Madonna. She’s got a great voice, an ear for catchy pop tunes & she’s so great at capitalising on pre existing trends that everyone acts like she invented whatever her current aesthetic is.
    Also Jared Leto might have a fun suit & necklace but I can’t un-see the fact that’s he a predator…. And I kinda love how Adam Driver has committed to a simple well made suit. Tega Alexander & Jack Hulston tie for first place in the men’s red carpet fashion award from me.

  10. Becks1 says:

    If Salma’s dress didn’t have that sleeves – it would be amazing. Gold, shiny, retro, Gucci – it would totally work for this premiere.

    I think Gaga’s dress works too – its dramatic, its a statement, its the color of royalty, and its Gucci obviously – so yes, its a great fit here.

    Adam Driver, wtf, lol. Where is your Gucci sweater.

  11. Winnie Cooper’s Mom says:

    Not a fan of Jared Leto. I would ask how he’s still working, but it is Hollywood. Anyway, I’m intrigued with how the rest of this cast will do in this film, so I’ll give it a watch.

  12. Div says:

    I actually like most of the looks. There’s definitely a trashy, over the top vibe…but that’s Gucci.

    So the film is very mixed. Some say it’s a hot mess, some say it’s a hot mess in a good way, some say it’s just bad, others say it’s good, etc. But apparently Gaga (tho she has a few detractors) and Jared Leto (even if critics are split on Jared) are still in the hunt for Oscars, so there are probably going to be a lot of big, over the top looks from both of them on the red carpet.

    I wish Gaga would stop with the fillers. It’s definitely more fillers than surgery, as there are times when she looks like her old self, but then she seems to always go back to them.

  13. Sof says:

    How did I miss Jeremy Irons being on this? I always have to double take whenever I see him, he’s Humbert Humbert forever in my mind. Which sucks because it takes me a while to enjoy his acting.
    Not a fan of Gaga’s shoes, either choose those boots or the stockings, both combined with the dress is a no for me.
    An lol, you are right about Adam looking like a banker.

  14. lucy2 says:

    I agree with those saying Salma’s would be better without the sleeves, they add too much bulk to the look.
    I don’t like Gaga’s dress itself, but like the purple and her makeup.

  15. AMJ says:

    Gaga is morphing into Donatella Versace. Driver looks nice. That’s all I have

  16. BeanieBean says:

    In the photo of Gaga, Leto, & Driver there’s a woman at the far right who’s wearing a leopard print suit, black stockings, and black polka dot shoes. I want to see that outfit in its entirety. As for the movie stars–I love Gaga’s look & Leto’s (just his look) best. Driver didn’t get the memo apparently.

  17. Case says:

    Adam being his usual low-key self and trying to pose with wild, extravagantly-dressed Gaga is exactly what I wanted from this promo tour lol. They make a funny but charming pair.

  18. MelOn says:

    Salma Hayek has no clue how to dress her body. She either looks like a Florida retiree, or she wears things that make her look boxy/ rectangular. This dress is awful, take off the sleeves, narrow the straps a little at the top. Relax the bodice so her boobs don’t look cinched up to her neck and put her hair up so her neck has a little length. Seeing that her husband owns all those luxury brands, you’d think someone would step in and guide her or at least tell her the truth. Gaga is exhausting, it looks like she’s wearing a dressing gown.

  19. Coco says:

    What did Gaga do to her face and lips.

  20. BlondieR says:

    Am I only one who paused to wonder if we were supposed to see Gaga’s undies?

  21. Natters says:

    When your billionaire husband owns Gucci and other luxury brands, one would think there is form figure (and I’m sure there is) where the designer can create beautiful, figure flattering fashion for their boss’s wife. Especially since she is a high profile actress. Her gowns mostly look like they are designed for tall thin models and the designer says to his assistant, “Alter this for Salma.” I saw her once leaving Oribe in NYC before she met her husband and she looked like a small “S”, she was all t&a. It drives me crazy because she has the money and connections to have exceptional bespoke fashion to go with her body type but she always looks like an afterthought from the designer.

  22. Chelle says:

    I love Gaga but wish she’d stop messing with her face. There will come a day when she longs for the bucal fat it appears she had removed.

  23. detritus says:

    Adam Driver is like the reverse of my character in a cut scene meme.

    He seems to have a good sense of humor so I bet that tickled him.

    Someone tell me why I dislike Leto so much. I can’t remember other than the pretension and weird rat stuff. His suit looks good tho, and I adore Gagas dress. Not 100% on the styling (I want the arm sleeves to match the leg sleeves) but that dress…

    • TheRickestRick says:

      There’s been a lot of rumors about him being very very sexually aggressive, (not really wanting to get into the explicit details) the women he is behaving this way with are on the young side, the friendship with Terry Richardson doesn’t help.

      Yeah, your instincts are correct, he is a full on creep at the very least, and I’m honestly surprised he hasn’t been outed as a sexual predator yet

  24. jferber says:

    I like the pic of Gaga with the cape up in the air. Fantastic!
