The “House of Gucci” has taken over the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising (FIDM) Museum in downtown Los Angeles. Costumes worn by the film’s cast, including Lady Gaga, Adam Driver and Jared Leto were on display, including Lady Gaga’s wedding dress.
On hand opening night were Patrick Starr, costume designer Janty Yates, Sarah Tanno, makeup artist to Lady Gaga, and Gaga’s hairstylist Frederic Aspiras.
Patrizia Reggiani’s wedding dress worn by Gaga stood front and center of the exhibit. Yates told Variety, “This wedding dress was eight to ten weeks in the making. All the lace was sewn by hand and appliqued.”
In picking the nylon red ski suit that Gaga wears on the ski slope. Yates has been asked, “‘Why did I put her in diabolical red?’ I don’t think it’s diabolical. I thought they (Maurizio and Paola, played by Camille Cottin) were in white, and she’d be in red.”
Yates explains the wedding ring that Gaga sports in the film (not on display at the exhibit) was a piece of costume jewelry — and she had two copies.
Director Ridley Scott added in a statement, “Making this film has been an extraordinarily rewarding experience, and this exhibition serves as an extension and showcase of the terrific work by my remarkable team of artists.”
Aside from the costumes on display, rare photography and film footage is also part of the exhibit which runs through Dec. 4.
