American singer, songwriter, and actress Lady Gaga has always had a way of commanding attention either through her outfits or by the words coming out of her mouth. The Mother Monster as she is fondly called didn’t deviate from this when she attended the ELLE’s 25th Annual Women In Hollywood Celebration alongside other honorees and powerful speaks.
Clad in an outfit that only she could have picked up, the “Born This Way” singer who recently starred in hit romance drama “A Star Is Born“, looked exceptional in an oversize pinstripe Marc Jacobs Spring 2019 suit. But even though the look was a complete fashion statement, Lady Gaga used the outfit to make a serious statement about being a sexual assault survivor.
In a very emotional acceptance speech, she touched on sexual abuse, mental health and the burdening beauty standards place on women in Hollywood. She explained that after trying on nearly a dozen designer gowns, the pressure to please others melted away when she saw the Marc Jacobs suit that allowed Lady Gaga to be herself.
Some other speakers and honorees that attended the event include Shonda Rhimes, Yara Shahidi, Charlize Theron among others
