Natali Germanotta was the brain behind the singer’s elegant feathered capelet.
Lady Gaga tapped a designer close to her heart for the dress she wore to the 64th Annual Grammy Awards ceremony: her little sister!
The music and beauty mogul appeared at the glitzy affair in three different knockout gowns. For her first, Gaga graced the red carpet in a black silk column gown with a white train, custom-made by Giorgio Armani Privé. Later in the evening, she performed onstage in a Tiffany Blue Elie Saab dress. She ended the night wearing a sheer feathered capelet in a similar shade of blue, thanks to sister Natali Germanotta, who designs at the New York–based Topo Studio.
Gaga gave Germanotta a special shout-out via Instagram on Monday. Captioning a photo of herself holding her 13th Grammy, which she won in the category of Best Traditional Pop Vocal Album for Love for Sale, Gaga wrote, “Thank you to @topostudiony for hand making this beautiful 👗 for me 🥰.”
She also added a sentimental note about her triumph at the Grammys, which she shares with Tony Bennett. “I won my thirteenth Grammy last night, and I cried just like the first time I won for ‘Just Dance,'” she said. “Tony and I are so grateful for this honor. I was so proud to be a part of such a beautiful community of musicians where so many people were rewarded for their artistry. Congratulations to everyone for all the awards, performances, and for your devotion to music. And thank you for that standing ovation! You truly lifted my spirits on a night where I truly missed my friend—he would have been so happy that in 2022 everyone stood up for Jazz! I love you!!”
The design studio shared a closer look at Gaga’s custom turquoise dress on Instagram, offering a glimpse at the hand-ruched heart-shaped bodice and the bedazzled details on the capelet.
