If you’re celebrating Halloween tonight and still haven’t got your fancy dress sorted, you could get some worldwide love by dressing as Joanne, Lady Gaga’s latest incarnation, and hashtagging yourself with #JoanneHalloween. Fans of the singer discovered this over the weekend when Gaga started retweeting images of thems in costume following her request for ‘Joanne vibes’ online.
To complete the look you’ll need denim cutoffs, some aviators, a nice pastel-pink Stetson, knee-high boots, and attitude.
Feel free to add fake pink fur to the mix
A guitar doesn’t hurt either.
And tbh it doesn’t really matter if you don’t have the right footwear.
That guitar is tiny, but it still kinda works.
If you do it right – i.e. if you get enough sequins in there – Gaga will repost your photo to her millions of followers.
And don’t forget: your dog can get involved as well.
In a recent NME interview, Lady Gaga told the story of Joanne, her late aunt and the namesake of her new album, whom she felt was a kind of ‘spirit guide’. “I’ve had faith my whole life that there was someone looking out for me… an angel hovering somewhere, who was going to help lead the way. I never understood the rage and anger of my father, but understanding his loss of his sister in Joanne, this helped me understand more where his pain came from – and where my pain came from, because it came from him. I am who I am because of my family and I carried a lot of shame for a long time about being rebellious. But what I’ve realised is that the toughness in me is something that comes from what came before me, and everything my family and their family before them went through.”
