Lady Gaga is not kidding around when it comes to bringing her Joker: Folie à Deux character to life.
Lady Gaga is currently filming as Harley Quinn for the forthcoming Joker: Folie à Deux sequel — alongside Joaquin Phoenix returning to play the clown-ish chaotic title character. Today, a new glimpse of Gaga’s costume has surfaced.
Compared to past Harley iterations like Margot Robbie’s glitzy take in Birds Of Prey and Suicide Squad, Gaga’s version finds her taking old-school inspiration. She wears a red jacket over a b&w-patterned diamond top. For pants, she has a black leather skirt and similarly-diamonded tights.
She also rocks the clown makeup, putting a modern spin on the harlequin style.

“It makes me so happy because I said from the very beginning, all I want is for Harley Quinn to be one of those characters, the way like Macbeth or Batman always gets passed from great actor to great actor,” Robbie told MTV News a while back about Gaga’s casting.
“It’s such an honor to have built a foundation strong enough that Harley can now be one of those characters that other actors get to have a go at playing,” she added. “I think she’ll do something incredible with it.”
