She may have taken inspiration from Judy Garland on the 2019 Golden Globes red carpet, but Lady Gaga is channelling another screen queen for her Academy Awards look.
The “A Star Is Born” leading lady graced the 2019 Oscars red carpet in a stunning black Alexander McQueen gown, showing off her tattoo inspired by the film.
However, the real jaw-dropper was the iconic 128.54-carat Tiffany & Co diamond that the musician wore around her neck.
This moment marked the first time in history that the priceless 141-year-old Tiffany Diamond graced an awards show red carpet.
The cushion-cut diamond, which features over 82 facets, was last worn by Audrey Hepburn in 1962 for publicity posters for “Breakfast At Tiffany’s”.
“Lady Gaga is the ultimate creator, innovator and rule breaker, and I’m thrilled that she will be wearing the legendary Tiffany Diamond on the awards show red carpet for the first time since it was discovered 141 years ago,” Reed Krakoff, Tiffany & Co. chief artistic officer said in a press release.
The Tiffany Diamond was discovered in South Africa back in 1877. Founder Charles Lewis Tiffany purchased the rough diamond the following year, which solidified the jewellery brand’s reputation as a diamond authority.
