Lady Gaga always knows how to keep us guessing.
The actress and pop star surprised fans when she wasn’t seen on the Oscars 2022 red carpet, instead choosing to make an appearance at the Elton John AIDS Foundation 30th annual Academy Awards viewing party in a voluminous tulle gown.
But it turned out Little Monsters had nothing to fear: Gaga appeared on the Dolby Theatre stage at the very last minute in a sparkling tuxedo, presenting the Best Picture award with Liza Minnelli.
Walking out to a massive reception, Gaga joined Minnelli, 76, wearing a look designed by Ralph Lauren for her 2019 Las Vegas residency. The lamé style originally featured an attached skirt with crystals, according to Vogue, but Gaga pared the look down for the award show.
And there was a hidden meaning behind the choice; Gaga wore the outfit in Sin City to sing “New York, New York” from the 1977 movie musical starring Minnelli.
Telling the audience that Minnelli was celebrating the 50th anniversary of “Cabaret,” Gaga added: “The public, they love you,” to the Hollywood legend, who beamed at her standing ovation.
It was a night of fabulous fashion for the “House of Gucci” star, 36, who was snubbed for an Oscar nomination for her role as Patrizia Reggiani in the film.
Earlier in the night, the singer wore a creamy light yellow ballgown by Rodarte and posed with Elton’s husband David Furnish and sons Elijah and Zachary (who happen to be her godsons) at the glamorous event, while John was missing from the party.
Her frothy strapless dress was accentuated by some serious bling, with the “Shallow” singer rocking a triple-strand diamond statement necklace and bold diamond earrings.
She added some old Hollywood glam with a sweeping updo and a classic red lip to finish off her party look.
The “A Star is Born” actress added black heels and swapped out her earrings for another dangling diamond pair, but kept the rest of her Oscars night look the same, wearing her massive diamond necklace over her white button-up shirt, proving she’s nothing if not a quick change afficiando.
