What’s one perk of being the new face of Versace? As Lady Gaga knows, it’s wearing the designer to the AMAs, the night after your first ads were released. *hair flip* After teasing her red carpet wares on Twitter with lyrics from her “Donatella” track, Gaga trotted into the AMAs wearing lilac Versace while riding on the back of a white horse, which was not a real animal but an elaborate costume on top of two very strong men in white spandex.
Once she dismounted, the full-length view of the two-tone purple, cut-out Spring/Summer 2014 ready-to-wear gown was visible, as was the lion head necklace/body chain steez that is also featured in her ad. You get an outfit and accessories when you’re the face of Versace? Where do I sign up?

Gaga’s AMA look was styled identically to her ad, down to her sleek, platinum, Donatella-inspired ’do. Genetically, since Gaga called Donatella “family,” it makes total sense for her hair to look like that. I mean, Donatella’s is natural too, right? For someone who usually likes to make bold appearances on red carpets (YouTube Awards, anyone?), this look is very glam and even a little subdued for Gaga: if this partnership with Versace ushers in a new era of Gaga in gowns, we’re all for it.
