That’s how it’s done!
Lady Gaga took the head-to-toe look to the level of what head-to-toe literally means. Lavender blue, crisp and wonderful custom Valentino Couture dress. Most probably blue shoes, but that’s no news. And blue hair! A look that might go into the Golden Globes’ history forever. Gaga is forever. A Star Is Born is forever. There was no doubt Lady Gaga wouldn’t have taken the whole thing to forever.
And that’s so Gaga. Bow down, bi***es, as Béyonce would sing. Bey and Jay’s daughter’s name is Blue.

Hailing from the AW18 Couture collection, Gaga’s billowing frock is a pastel blue version of the darker colourway from the catwalk, and an homage to Judy Garland’s 1954 A Star Is Born look. Bravo to stylists Sandra Amador and Tom Eerebout, who added a Tiffany necklace and Giuseppe Zanotti heels. We love how she’s gone full throttle matchy-matchy with dyed blue tresses too!, The Daily Mail.
The best part? The gown is a dead-ringer for a style worn by Judy Garland—the OG star of A Star Is Born—in the 1954 version, as pointed out on Twitter below. Beautiful, thoughtful, and on-theme: the perfect trifecta., Vogue.
… Is what the media says. Lady Gaga’s reaction to the comparison, nevertheless, is both priceless and sweet. She had no idea whatsoever about the analogy the interviewer at Entertainment Tonight made on the spot on her iPad, but was thrilled with it. Is it possible that stylists Sandra Amador and Tom Eerebout along with Pierpaolo Piccioli didn’t have Judy Garland’s 1954 look in mind when creating Gaga’s look and it all just happened?
That sounds like magic!
Magic, it’s a kind of magic
It’s a kind of magic
Magic, magic, magic, magic
Magic, ha ha ha ha it’s magic
It’s a kind of magic
Are the lyrics of Queen’s A Kind Of Magic.

Lady Gaga is head-to-toe gaga, that’s a fact. Lady Gaga channeling Judy Garland’s look from back in ’54 – as an idea – might have been a beautiful idea Lady Gaga would have liked and gracefully embraced. For Lady Gaga, though, to be compared with Judy Garland by a mere coincidence is pretty blissful. So maybe the stylists and Valentino’s creative director did know and Gaga didn’t, but then it’s still so very cute the way Lady Gaga responded to the affirmation live on the red carpet.
It is all over the Internet. Lady Gaga pays tribute to Judy Garland’s 1954 release A Star Is Born at the Golden Globes 2019.

A Star Is Born is an American musical romantic drama film produced and directed by Bradley Cooper (in his directorial debut) and written by Eric Roth, Cooper and Will Fetters. It marks the fourth remake of the original 1937 film (starring Janet Gaynor and Fredric March), the 1954 musical (starring Judy Garland and James Mason), the 1976 rock musical (starring Barbra Streisand and Kris Kristofferson) and the 2013 Bollywood film Aashiqui 2.
Lady Gaga was nominated for Best Actress, yet won the internet over with her gown and the Golden Globe for Best Original Song for a Motion Picture.
She must have dropped the mic in her mind. She’s too graceful to do it at the Golden Globes while in Valentino, but she just might do it with her friends at home, in the living room.
