Lady Gaga was born this way, and by that we mean Italian, so behold the gloriously over-the-top character posters for her upcoming film “House of Gucci.”
While the set photos of the cast filming around Italy in full period regalia have already set the internet ablaze, we haven’t been properly introduced to the family behind the titular fashion house at the center of the Ridley Scott-directed film.
“House of Gucci,” based off the book of the same name by Sara Gay Forden, explores one of the most scandalous crimes in Italian history: the assassination of the former head of the Gucci fashion house, Maurizio Gucci.
Gaga plays Patrizia Reggiani, who was tried and convicted of orchestrating the 1995 murder of her ex-husband Maurizio (Adam Driver), with Al Pacino, Jared Leto and Jeremy Irons appearing in the film as various Gucci family members.
Now, we have a better look at the players in question, including a close-up of the “Chromatica” singer, who sports a bold red lip and a black funeral veil in her poster portrait.
And then there’s Leto, who — in a surprise to no one — has undergone a complete and totally unnecessary transformation to play Gucci family patriarch Paolo 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 will go for control,” the film’s description promises.
