Grammy weekend just went by, but we’re still captivated by the performances that took place this year.
One that will be remembered forever, was that of Lady Gaga in 2016, so let’s try to take a look back and enjoy her magnificence on that same red carpet, while she was paying homage to the late David Bowie who died one month prior to the event.
Gaga wore a royal blue custom Marc Jacobs dress with pronounced shoulders and a very high slit, the embroidery was courtesy of Maison Lesage. The inspiration was clearly taken from this blazer from the 2016 Ready-to-Wear collection. The singer paired the look with Pleaser Beyond-087 10” platform shoes, customized by Andre #1.
Gaga also opted for Lorraine Schwartz and Ofira jewels to accessorize her whole ensemble.
Gaga‘s eyes were evidently inspired by Bowie‘s makeup in the ‘Life On Mars?’ video and luckily for us, her make up artist Sarah Tanno revealed to Glamour.com and People.com the products she used to achieve the look:
– Sephora Collection Honey Mask to prep the skin;
– Sephora Collection Contour Eye Pencil 12Hr Wear Waterproof in My Boyfriend’s Jeans and Surfer Babe, plus Sephora Collection Contour Matte Gel Eyeliner Waterproof in Navy Baby;
– Sephora Collection Outrageous Volume-Dramatic Volume Mascara;
– Swarovski crystals to finish-off the look.
In an interview with People.com, Tanno also explained how she prepared for the occasion: “I went through videos and books to study the looks and break them down before we had our big day. […] I wanted to go glam rock all the way, but still do something very sexy and fun.”
For the whole deal, check Sarah‘s face chart in the gallery above.
The makeup artist and Lady Gaga are such a powerful duo and there is no wonder seen the success Haus Laboratories is receiving.
When it came to her hair, we were able to find an American Salon article detailing the whole process her hairstylist Frederic Aspiras went through, and we will report it here:
“- Aspiras first washed Lady Gaga’s hair with L’ANZA Keratin Healing Oil Shampoo and L’ANZA Keratin Healing Oil Conditioner;
– after towel drying he applied L’ANZA Healing Style Polyester on top of her hair, for texture, volume and shine;
– he then applied L’ANZA Healing Style Design Foam to the remainder of her hair including the ends;
– Aspiras then created two hair sections, separating the top from the bottom. Using a small round brush he blow-dried the top back of the hair for further volume.
– He blow-dried the lower section with a large round brush, to give the style movement and a soft curl;
– using a large 2-inch curling iron, Aspiras then curled the sides towards the back and center, then curled the back of the hair going upwards. He pinned each curl with a clip and allowed it to cool.
– After removing the clips and letting the curls drop, he gave them a light misting of L’ANZA Healing Style Dry Texture Spray. He then used a large paddle brush to brush out the curls.
– He then applied L’ANZA Healing Style Beach Spray throughout.
– Next Aspiras used L’ANZA Healing Style Sculpt Dry Clay to piece and mold the top and sides. He also noted that Dry Clay is great for fly-aways;
– to finish the look and for lasting hold and bounce, Aspiras applied a final misting of L’ANZA Keratin Healing Oil Lustrous Finishing Spray.”
For nails, manicurist Miho Okawara opted for a natural sheer nude.
