Lady Gaga Channeled Marilyn Monroe at the Venice Film Festival and OMG it's Just What We Needed

Honestly, is there anything Lady Gaga can't do? Not only is our queen of pop regarded as one of the most experimental artists of her time, snatching platinum albums left and right, but she is now making her debut as an actress in her upcoming film, A Star is Born. As the new actress on the block, Gaga attended the Venice Film Festival last Thursday, where the first screening of her film was held. Of course, Gaga didn't turn up in just any standard red carpet look. Yes, alongside her co-star, the dashing Bradley Cooper, Gaga channeled the iconic Marilyn Monroe with her hair, dress and makeup! 

The pop queen took her entrance to the next level, cruising into the venue in a classy boat. She was dressed in a gorgeous black Jonathan Simkhai minidress, black pumps and holding a huge vibrant red flower in her hand. Lady Gaga's hair was the perfect finishing touch, styled up into tight luscious curls that Monroe herself would be proud of. 

As if that wasn't enough, Lady Gaga continued down the Marilyn Monroe style route for her photo call, switching out her black mini dress for a classic long white gown, reminiscent of what Marilyn Monroe would wear to the red carpet. She left her hair out in loose curls that screamed old fashion, almost country-esque flare. Diamond stud earrings and a bold nude lip pulled the whole look together, making her look exuberant next to Cooper as they posed together, arm in arm. 

Finally, Lady Gaga, in typical over-the-top but oh-so-stunning fashion, wore a huge pink and feathery Valentino gown. Designed by Pierpaolo Piccioli, the gown was a sight to behold, wrapping Gaga's slim frame beautifully with every feathery strand cascading down from her shoulders all the way to the bottom of her skirt. Twitter was raving over Gaga's looks, excited not only to see her in eye-catching fashion but to see her new movie.
