Lady Gaga is the name on everyone's lips today thanks to her radiant red carpet arrival at the premiere screening of her starring debut in A Star is Born. The film marks lots of firsts, as it is also her co-star Bradley Cooper's directorial debut, a job he apparently fought very hard to land. Cooper is an Academy darling and Lady Gaga is hugely popular, making this seem like a surefire Oscar contender from the very beginning.
This story has been told on film three times prior, two of which—the 1954 Judy Garland/James Mason version and the 1976 Barbra Streisand/Kris Kristofferson version—are Oscar winners. Venice has become the place to launch an Oscar run lately, and Lady Gaga knows how to draw more attention to the film than it was already going to receive.
I love this plunging dress she's wearing. It suits her quite nicely, and the white is very elegant. Lady Gaga may be an Oscar contender this year, but for right now, it's safe to say she won the Venice Film Festival, if such things are possible. I'm already anxious to see what she wears to the premiere in a few weeks.
