Lady Gaga brought her signature over-the-top style to Inauguration Day.
To perform the National Anthem before Joe Biden was sworn in as president, the 34-year-old pop phenom wore a custom Schiaparelli Haute Couture outfit featuring a fitted navy jacket and voluminous red skirt — an avant-garde take on America’s colors.
The pièce de résistance? A giant gold dove brooch, to send a message of peace and unity.

“As an American living in Paris, this ensemble is a love letter to the country I miss so dearly and to a performer whose artistry I have so long admired,” Schiaparelli artistic director Daniel Roseberry said in a statement.
“Maison Schiaparelli is honored to have this chance to dress the iconic Lady Gaga on this historic Inauguration Day. God Bless Lady Gaga and God Bless America.”
Gaga wore her hair in a braided crown woven with black ribbon.
Ahead of Inauguration Day, Gaga posed in the Capitol wearing an angelic all-white Givenchy ensemble.
“I pray tomorrow will be a day of peace for all Americans. A day for love, not hatred. A day for acceptance not fear. A day for dreaming of our future joy as a country. A dream that is non-violent, a dream that provides safety for our souls,” she wrote on Instagram.
Jennifer Lopez also sang “This Land Is Our Land” at Biden’s inauguration. John Legend, Garth Brooks, Demi Lovato and more are also set to perform as part of Wednesday’s festivities.
