Lady Gaga is not a newbie when it comes to making a fashion statement. So when she attended Elle magazine’s “Women in Hollywood” event wearing an oversized Marc Jacobs pantsuit, many thought it was one of her underwhelming choices.
Although many would agree that the baggy suit was quite simple for Lady Gaga, and some even said it was ill-fitting, the meaning behind it may just be her most powerful yet. In her speech, she revealed the meaning behind her fashion choice for the event.
Lady Gaga took the stage and ended up explaining why she opted to wear an oversized Marc Jacobs suit instead of a skin-tight dress to the event.
“I tried on dress after dress today getting ready for this event, one tight corset after another, one heel after another, a diamond, a feather, thousands of beaded fabrics and the most beautiful silks in the world.”
Speaking to a crowd of thousands, the 32-year-old explained how the outfit made her feel more empowered than a dress ever could. She shared that she tried on a lot of dresses from big designers, but none of them felt right. Gaga then revealed that after trying on the suit, she felt it was the best option hands down.
The singer, songwriter, and actress shared:
“In this suit, I felt like me today. In this suit, I felt the truth of who I am well up in my gut. And then wondering what I wanted to say tonight become very clear to me.”
Lady Gaga shared that witnessing injustice against women made her feel that she should “resist the standards of dressing to impress.” The star said that her past led her to live in trauma, and she doesn’t want that anymore. She then concluded her speech by telling all women in Hollywood to “lift [their] voices.”
