Lady Gaga 2022 Critics Choice Awards Gucci Gown

Once Lady Gaga hit the red carpet at the 27th annual Critics Choice Awards last night, there was no need to tune in any further. Because, love it or hate it, Gaga and her plunging custom Gucci gown were the main event of the show.

After delivering Old Hollywood glamour at the 2022 BAFTA Awards in a green velvet Ralph Lauren dress with a dramatic train, the actress and singer pulled off another standout look mere hours later. This time, Gaga, who was nominated for Best Actress for her role as Patrizia Reggiani in the film House of Gucci, fittingly wore a custom Gucci gown to the award show. The black and gold dress featured an extreme plunging neckline, thanks to an open bra-meets-bustier that was complemented by a black lace bolero on top. The bottom of the gown was more traditional in its silhouette, with a long silk skirt embellished with crystals.

She accessorized with diamond earrings and bracelet from Tiffany & Co., while her hair, which matched the golden tones of her dress and subdued yellow eyeshadow, was pulled back into a sleek updo.

During the award ceremony, Gaga, who was joined by her boyfriend Michael Polansky as her date, became visibly emotional during Halle Berry's acceptance speech as the Oscar-winner was presented with the SeeHer Award. "If we deny our complexities, then we deny our humanity. We won't always be pretty, and we will never be perfect, but what we will be is always honest and true — no matter how uncomfortable that makes you," Halle said at one point during her moving speech, garnering a few tears from Gaga across the room.

She continued, "These are the stories we have to fight to tell, and these are the stories that the world needs to see. So, to every little girl who feels unseen and unheard, this is our way of saying to you: We love you and we see you, and you deserve every good thing in this world."
