Lady Gaga, an Italian girl from New York, has revealed the first look at her transformation into Patrizia Reggiani, Maurizio Gucci’s ex-wife, in the upcoming movie about his assassination.
Gaga shared a photo on Tuesday of the onscreen couple posing on a snow-capped mountain, captioned “Signore e Signora Gucci,” which translates to Mr. and Mrs. Gucci. Channeling après-ski chic, Driver is donning a cable knit turtleneck sweater and a separate white jacket fashioned around his waist, while Gaga is draped in gold chains and outfitted in all black with a white Cossack hat.

The movie, which is currently filming in Europe, dramatizes the events around the assassination of Guccio Gucci’s grandson, Maurizio. Patrizia Reggiani was tried and convicted of orchestrating Maurizio Gucci’s murder in 1995 after he left her for a younger woman. She served in prison for 18 years, where she gained the nickname Black Widow, before being released in 2016.
“House of Gucci” marks Gaga’s first film role following her Oscar-nominated performance in “A Star Is Born.” Driver has received Academy Award nominations for “BlacKkKlansman” and “Marriage Story.”
Roberto Bentivegna wrote “House of Gucci,” based on the novel Sara Gay Forden novel “The House of Gucci: A Sensational Story of Murder, Madness, Glamour, and Greed.” The star-studded cast also includes Al Pacino, Jared Leto and Jeremy Irons.
The film, set at MGM, is expected to hit theaters on Nov. 24.
