Is there a more highly-anticipated film than House of Gucci? After today’s sneak peek, probably not! Directed by Ridley Scott, the upcoming flick is centered around the Italian fashion maven Maurizio Gucci (Adam Driver) and his ex-wife Patricia Reggiani (Lady Gaga) who, in 1996, was tried and convicted of orchestrating his assassination. Filming for the project began in Rome, Italy earlier this year, with Jared Leto, Al Pacino, and Jeremy Irons also attached to the project.
Today, Lady Gaga shared a first look at her and Driver in character on set, and we’re already salivating at the thoughts of its release (which is TBD). Though it’s a tragic story, the movie’s visuals will surely capture the glamour of the two characters at the center of its dramatic story, much like how The Assassination of Gianni Versace, another fashion murder-mystery, did with Gianni and Donatella Versace. With Gaga dressed in gold chains and a fur hat and Driver in a fisherman’s sweater and a snowsuit, it’s a lot to take in. So, entertain me for a minute, shall you? Below, 17 thoughts I had staring at Gaga and Driver’s Gucci transformation.
1. Let’s start big-picture here. Here they are on the Italian alps, filming some sort of ski scene. Driver was actually seen taking a tumble down the slopes earlier in the day.
2. I don’t know why, but Gaga strikes me as more of the snowboarding type—or the type who drinks cocktails in the lounge and skips the skiing all together.
3. They both nailed the high-fashion ski fashion vibe, which has been big recently (please look to the recent Thom Browne show, shot on Olympic skier Lindsey Vonn.)
4. Adam Driver’s cozy, white cable knit sweater is very much giving me Chris Evans in Knives Out, only with an added turtleneck. If anti-sexy (yet somehow still sexy) were to be defined as a garment, it would be this.
5. I love his aviator glasses, obviously. Don’t they fog up on the slopes? And the top of the snowsuit tied around his waist is genius. Who needs a coat when you have a sweater as thick as molasses?
6. Somehow, this white snowsuit is exactly what I imagined an Italian fashion executive to wear on the slopes. He is selling his character.
