LADY GAGA, GRAMMYS & GOLDSMITH
This years’ Annual Grammy Awards were a clear celebration of female talent; with big wins from superstars such as Dua, Cardi B, Kacey Musgraves and of course the iconic Lady Gaga.
There were tributes to power houses Dolly Parton and Diana Ross , and even former first lady Michelle Obama made an appearance. She spoke alongside Jada Pinkett- Smith, Jennifer Lopez, Alicia Keys and Lady Gaga about the unifying power of music.
‘Whether we like country or rap or rock, music helps us share ourselves, our dignity and sorrows, our hopes and joys’ She said. ‘It allows us to hear one another, to invite each other in.’
We couldn’t agree more, and believe fashion offers a similar magnetism, providing both inclusivity and individuality. Fashion gives people the ability to express themselves and share themselves. Lady Gaga has always been an intrepid fashion foregoer; relentlessly fearless in her fashion choices as well as her political and commercial opinions. A long supporter of Oliver Goldsmith, Lady Gaga has worn a whole host of OG sunglasses over the years, and we are incredibly proud to have worked with the her on so many different looks.
From airports to hotel lobby’s, stage shows to award shows, Lady Gaga has been papped in a multitude of Oliver Goldsmith frames. Classics such as the Y-Not, Moosh, Fuz, and Ukksuu to archival pieces such as The Mask and Butterfly. We even made her a pair of glittering Ogle’s, covered in over 5,000 Swarovski crystals. Her ability to pull of the weird, wonderful, bold yet beautiful is unmistakably Gaga. She really is a chameleon of fashion and a crusader in the celebration of eyewear.
Lady Gaga was nominated for five awards at this years Grammy Awards, winning three of the five. ‘Shallow’ , the song that featured in the Oscar-nominated ‘A Star is Born’ won her Best Pop Duo/Group Performance as well as Best Song Written For Visual Media, along with a win for Best Pop Solo Performance for ‘Joanne (Where Do You Think You’re Goin?)’
On winning, Lady Gaga thanked co-star and director Bradley Cooper and used her speech to highlight the film’s mental health message, telling the audience ‘If you see someone that’s hurting, don’t look away.’ She performed ‘Shallow’ with a legendary performance alongside British DJ Mark Ronson. Her performance was reminiscent of her pop icon days, a display of exuberant dancing, sparkling catsuits and electric guitars. Gaga’s reign as one of life’s’ living icons is relentless and her artistic ambitions in both the smash hit film and on stage continue to define her as someone who is essentially, indefinable. She really is a star that is born and reborn, again and again.
