As is so often the case, pop star Lady Gaga stole the show on Wednesday during the dedication ceremony of new President Joe Biden, who wore a dress with a train to perform the national anthem.
The staging and prop specialist Stefani Germanotta, real name, sang the “Star-Spangled Banner”, the American hymn, with his own microphone, gold like the brooch.
The New York artist was called to the podium of the temporary amphitheater in front of the Capitol and presented herself with a dress with a sober black, tight-fitting top with shoulder pads, but a puffy and large red skirt with a train.
The whole thing has been enhanced with a voluminous brooch in the shape of a dove on the chest and a braid on the top of the head and mixed with a black ribbon.
The dress is the work of the Parisian house Schiaparelli. “As an American living in Paris, this ensemble is a love letter to a country that I miss terribly and to a singer whose art I have long admired,” said Schiaparelli’s artistic director, Daniel Roseberry.
A regular at spectacular appearances
Just before Lady Gaga took the stage, she had promised on Twitter to “sing to the hearts of all who live in this land” and vowed to work for the reunification of a deeply divided nation.
The performer of hits like “Poker Face” or “Born This Way” is used to spectacular performances.
In May 2019, at the Met Gala, the social event of the year in the USA, she beat the competition with the Oscars, which, however, was the toughest in the world.
After Lady Gaga, Jennifer Lopez played the patriotic song “This Land is Your Land” (“This Land is Your Land”).
The singer, also known for her show and her outfits, also caused a stir with a crisp white ensemble.
