Rivaled only by Jeremy Irons's anti-fashion 'fit, Gaga's on and off-screen style has been making headlines ever since she signed on to play Patrizia Reggiani, the power-hungry wife of Maurizio Gucci.
Most recently, the pop star-turned-actor attended House of Gucci's Italian premiere wearing... custom Versace couture.
A pretty bold move, considering the movie she's promoting.
Now that the Chromatica singer has cut her teeth playing a fashion villain (anti-hero, perhaps?), it'd be quite the serve, so to speak, for her to play another figure in Italian luxury.
Gaga certainly looked the part in a corseted Versace column gown, cut with a leg-baring slit. Inspired by the house's Spring/Summer 1995 collection, the dress transforms her into a younger version of Donatella, more convincingly so than Ryan Murphy did to Penélope Cruz in American Crime Story season two.
In my book, Gaga and Donatella are two of the world's most important platinum blondes. And, judging from reactions to the House of Gucci trailer, Lady Gaga's Italian accent is already something of a phenomenon — wouldn't you love to see her adapt her already iconic inflection to Versace's low-pitch purr?
As for the rest of the Versace family, it's never too early to start manifesting your dream cast.
