Lady Gaga arrived safe, healthy, and as expected in style, at Capitol Hill before performing at the Biden-Harris inauguration in Washington DC. The fame monster wore a white Givenchy cloak from creative director Matthew Williams and a matching silk face mask with platinum hair in milkmaid braids – and we suspect there was a secondary meaning behind her defiant white cloak.
“I pray that tomorrow will be a day of peace for all Americans,” Gaga signed the hopeful picture. “A day of love, not hate. A day of acceptance, not fear. A day to dream of our future joy as a country. A dream that is non-violent, a dream that offers security for our souls. Love , from the Capitol 🇺🇸 ”
While Gaga’s prayer for the United States is full of optimism, it is easy to see that her choice of a white cloak is a nod to the women of the suffragette movement. Much like Vice President Kamala Harris’s white suit from her 2020 address to the nation, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s white cape blazer at the 2019 State of the Union Address, and Hilary Clinton’s white pants suit during her 2016 Democratic nomination for the President, Gaga stands in solidarity with these women and those who stood before them in the ongoing struggle for equality and representation.
