Bellisima! Academy Award winner Lady Gaga is stunning in the first cast poster for her upcoming film House of Gucci, and we are absolutely GAGGING.
The posters were released today in a thread on Twitter with the caption "stasera," which is Italian for "this evening," indicating when the first trailer for the film could be coming out.
The posters also give us our best looks at Adam Driver’s Maurizio Gucci, Jared Leto as Paolo Gucci, Al Pacino as Aldo Gucci, and Jeremy Irons as Rodolfo Gucci. Yes, that’s four Oscar winners in this incredible lineup!
The singer and actress will be playing Patrizia Reggiani, the ex-wife of Maurizio, who was convicted of his murder in 1995. According to a release, the film is "inspired by the shocking true story of the family empire behind the Italian fashion house of Gucci. Spanning three decades of love, betrayal, decadence, revenge, and ultimately murder, we see what a name means, what it’s worth, and how far a family go for control."
Reggiani first married Maurizio in 1973, and the couple quickly became one of Italy’s most famous power couples. In 1994, Maurizio left Reggiani for another woman and they divorced. A year later, he was shot multiple times by a hitman and murdered. Reggiani was convicted in 1998 for ordering the assassination.
This isn’t the first look at Gaga and Driver’s characters. Back in March, Gaga posted a picture of the two of them in costume in what looks like the Alps. "Signore e Signora Gucci," she captioned the photo.
Gaga is already getting heavy Oscar buzz for the role. In 2019, she was nominated for Best Actress for her first starring role in the film A Star Is Born. She also won the Oscar for her song "Shallow" from the movie.
House of Gucci is directed by Gladiator and Blade Runner helmer Ridley Scott and is debuting only in theaters on November 24.
