Oscar Nominee Lady Gaga Asked BFF Designer Brandon Maxwell to Make 5 Custom Looks

Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

As we predicted, Lady Gaga's Oscars look is by her longtime stylist-turned-designer Brandon Maxwell. Apparently he made the singer, who's nominated for best song tonight, a whopping five custom looks and she ultimately selected a glorified jumpsuit.

To be fair, it's a radically elegant jumpsuit with wide leg pants, a pretty sweetheart neckline, and a sweeping train made possible by a skirt back that is essentially a reverse skort. Gaga is performing tonight, too, so we'll certainly get another 'fit from her tonight.
