Lady Gaga was photographed outside a hotel in Rome today sporting dark brown hair, a total 180 from her signature platinum blonde, which she had several weeks ago at the US presidential inauguration. Though the rich brunette shade is in stark contrast to her usual look, it's actually a return to her (literal) roots — and a possible signifier of an exciting upcoming project for the singer.
The amped-up style game and dye job could very well be part of the star's character development for her upcoming role in Ridley Scott's fashion film Gucci, which also stars Jared Leto, Al Pacino, Robert De Niro, and Adam Driver, reports Harper’s Bazaar. Gaga will portray Maurizio Gucci’s ex-wife, Patrizia Reggiani, who was tried and convicted of orchestrating his assassination on the steps of his office in 1995.
This is the first film Gaga has taken on since her now-legendary performance in A Star Is Born in 2018. During and after filming, the performer and fashion chameleon experimented with her own style, channeling her onscreen persona in the process. She could be doing the same now — and if that's the case, we can hopefully expect countless iconic glam moments from her in Gucci.
