Lady Gaga is one celebrity who always goes the extra mile in terms of fashion. She has worn outfits that would border on crazy and never fails to surprise her fans and the press at events she attends.
The music star performed at the inauguration of President Joe Biden and was dressed in what seemed like a beautiful navy blue jacket and skirt, with a stunning gold brooch shaped like a dove.
However, as simple and classy as the outfit seemed, Lady Gaga couldn’t resist adding a secret element to her outfit that no one would notice— she made it bulletproof. When the singer revealed that her outfit was bulletproof, it shocked many of her fans, but it truly wasn’t that surprising, well, because it’s Lady Gaga.
Here is a recap of her outfit for the inauguration and why she made it bulletproof.
Lady Gaga’s Outfit To The Inauguration
Many musicians have performed at previous presidential inaugurations and have set the trend of subsequent performers wearing something classy and formal for the prestigious event.
Lady Gaga didn’t disappoint and looked beautiful in a navy blue jacket and skirt combo designed by Italian designer Schiaparelli.
The jacket had a large gold brooch that was shaped like a dove holding an olive branch. The real surprise of the outfit was when the singer admitted that the entire thing was bulletproof. However, she didn’t clarify whether the dress was bulletproof or if she wore bulletproof material beneath the dress.
With Gaga’s history of eccentric performance and red carpet outfits, the bulletproof nature of her dress wasn’t so strange to her fans. Still, it was certainly a different angle from her usual designs.
The Reason For The Bulletproof Outfit
Lady Gaga has performed at hundreds of events, but for her, the inauguration was more than just an ordinary performance; it was an honor that felt special to her.
During an interview with British Vogue, she said, “Like many people in America, I felt a deep fear when Trump was president, and ushering 45 out and 46 in is something I’ll be able to tell my children all about.”
Many have speculated that maybe the deep fear she felt during Trump’s presidency inspired her to protect herself with a bulletproof outfit. There is also the extremist activity and threats of violence that increased as the inauguration day approached.
It is possible that Lady Gaga felt the need to protect herself from anything that could happen, especially as she was one of many famous people that was outspoken critics of the Trump regime.
The Dove Brooch Was Symbolic
The large golden dove holding an olive branch was more than just a piece of jewelry to adorn Lady Gaga’s outfit; it was a symbol. Many of her fans believe she chose the dove because it represents peace.
As a part of her outfit, it symbolized the beginning of a new administration that would bring peace and co-existence to the country.
Lady Gaga is a celebrity who has never shied away from sharing her opinions on sensitive issues, such as the Trump administration. In several interviews, she clarified that she doesn’t care if people are offended by her opinions because she will share them regardless.
She also uses her clothing to make fashion statements, and nothing could have been louder and more precise than her outfit to Biden’s inauguration. This outfit can be interpreted as a bulletproof outfit to protect against the outgoing bad and the dove brooch to signify the incoming peace.
