To not point out her Italian origins. Oh, and her spectacular resume as the one artist to obtain an Oscar, Grammy, BAFTA and Golden Globe in the identical 12 months for A Star is Born.
Valentino’s inventive director, Pierpaolo Piccioli, revealed the model’s determination in a press release: ‘Lady Gaga means freedom, self-consciousness, pure heart.
