What Twitter Is Saying About Lady Gaga At The Inauguration Of President Joe Biden
Lady Gaga belted out her own version of "The Star-Spangled Banner" at the inauguration of President Joe Biden on Wednesday wearing a dress Billboard characterized as a "Hunger Games" outfit.
President Joe Biden and Vice-President Kamala Harris were sworn into office in the U.S. Capitol with the attendance of their allies in the political sphere, Democrat personalities, former vice-president Mike Pence who served in the Donald Trump administration, and former Democrat President Barack Obama with his wife, Michelle Obama. Trump chose not to attend the inauguration.
"Congratulations to my friend, President @JoeBiden! This is your time," Barack Obama tweeted.
Lady Gaga took the limelight and opted to wear a theatrical outfit. According to Town and Country, the pop singer wore a custom Schiaparelli haute couture design ensemble that features a fitted navy cashmere jacket with a voluminous washed faille skirt of red silk.
She sported a braid with a red flower tucked at the back. Yet, what was noticeable was the giant golden dove-shaped brooch on her black outfit.
Lady Gaga officially revealed what the brooch is about, tweeting, "A dove carrying an olive branch. May we all make peace with each other."
After all, she was not trying to seek inspiration from the "Hunger Games'" Mockingjay.
Prior to her performance, at the rehearsals, the singer wore a white ensemble, Givenchy by Matthew Williams.
