Ed­i­tor’s let­ter


Idon’t know about you, but I thought Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper were robbed at the Golden Globes. AS­tarisBorn was nom­i­nated for four awards but only took home one gong for a song – and it was Bo­hemi­anRhap­sody that cleaned up.

Sure, Rami Malek was awe­some as Queen’s cham­pion Fred­die Mer­cury, but the movie was a stock biopic. And AS­tarisBorn was such great cin­ema in my hum­ble opin­ion. Well, didn’t you think Bradley and Gaga were in­cred­i­ble? I sobbed into my tis­sues like a baby at the end of that film, grate­ful for a black screen as the cred­its rolled. I was a mess. Truly, I was so moved.

The Globes usu­ally sig­nal who will win Os­cars, but I hope our cover star Gaga doesn’t get snubbed again. I’ve loved watch­ing the woman for­mally known as Ste­fani Ger­man­otta meta­mor­phose into a Hol­ly­wood star. There was a time here at Woman’sDay that we got a bit sick of Gaga, the shock frock pop star. Her per­pet­ual parad­ing of rad­i­cal red-car­pet out­fits slowly failed to even raise an eye­brow. After hatch­ing from an egg and, God for­bid, wear­ing meat from head to toe, there wasn’t much left to sur­prise us!

But since she’s moved from mu­sic star to movie icon, Gaga’s style has trans­formed. At the Globes, she was the belle of the ball – a throw­back to old Hol­ly­wood in her gor­geous gown, and a nod to Judy Gar­land who wore a sim­i­lar laven­der Jean Louis dress in the orig­i­nal 1954 ver­sion of AS­tarisBorn.

Ever the style chameleon, Gaga’s rein­ven­tion as a glam­orous A-list red-car­pet god­dess suits her best of all. She’s cer­tainly a lady!

Have a great week, ev­ery­one.
