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.
