We are a few months away from the one-year anniversary of President Joe Biden’s inauguration on January 20, 2021.
The day was filled with celebrity performances and cameos.
Most notably, Lady Gaga sang the national anthem during the inauguration ceremony and while wearing a designer, ‘Hunger Games’-esque dress made by fashion label Schiaparelli.
Lady Gaga says her dress was bulletproof
In a recent interview with British Vogue for their YouTube series, “Life in Looks,” the Grammy-winner went through 19 of her most iconic looks throughout her lifetime and dissected each and every one of them.

When she got to her inauguration dress, she said the dress was made to add extra protection while she performed.
“So, this is one of my favorite things I’ve ever worn. I wore this Schiaparelli design for the inauguration and nobody knows this, but this was a bullet-proof dress,” she said. “When I saw that golden dove, I just knew this was the right piece and I knew that Schiaparelli being an Italian fashion house was something that I really, really wanted to do for my heritage as an Italian-American woman that would be singing for president 45 to leaving and to invite president 46 in the office.”

Gaga dissects 19 of her most iconic looks
As shocking as it sounds that her dress was bulletproof, it’s even more shocking to hear the designer, Schiaparelli, negate her claims!
The fashion brand recently spoke to the Daily Mail and said that Gaga’s inauguration dress was in fact NOT bulletproof.
In an exclusive statement to the outlet, a spokesperson for Schiaparelli explained that the black-and-red gown worn by Gaga was ‘not actually bulletproof.’
Lady Gaga may have chosen to wear protection underneath prior to performing, but the fashion brand insists they personally did not make the dress bullet-proof.
Schiaparelli says they didn’t make her dress bulletproof
“The dress was not actually bulletproof, we cannot comment on what she may have worn underneath,” a brand representative said.
Gaga has not yet responded to Schiaparelli’s claims.
Other outfits Lady Gaga dished about included her iconic meat dress at the 2010 MTV VMAs.
The idea for the meat dress came from her makeup artist, Val Garland, who actually wore sausages to a party one time.
“I thought this was quite funny and I said, ‘That’s a great way to make sure everybody leaves you alone at a party,’” Gaga revealed. “It smelled like meat. It was thrilling to wear. There’s a corset under this, but the corset was sewn to the meat, so this is actually a garment. They didn’t drape meat over me and cross their fingers.”
Another fun fact about Gaga’s dedication to fashion, she lived inside the egg for three days prior to making her EGG-cellent debut at the 2011 Grammy Awards.
