‘Wealth, style, power’: Lady Gaga stars in stylishly sinister ‘House of Gucci’ trailer

  • July 30, 2021

For better or for worse, meet Mr. and Mrs. Gucci.

A trailer that dropped Thursday offered a glimpse of Adam Driver and Lady Gaga in action as Maurizio Gucci and Italian socialite Patrizia Reggiani in Ridley Scott’s “House of Gucci” (in theaters Nov. 24). The trailer offers all the glitz and glamour you’d expect from the Italian fashion house in the ’90s, complete with the couple’s lavish wedding, opulent lifestyle and something more sinister: murder. 

“It was a name that sounded so sweet, so seductive, synonymous with wealth, style, power, but that name was a curse too,” says Gaga’s Reggiani, who in real life was convictedof orchestrating the assassination of Maurizio, her ex-husband and head of the Gucci fashion house.

“I don’t consider myself to be a particularly ethical person,” Gaga adds to the tune of “Heart Of Glass” by Blondie. “But I am fair.”

Reggiani served 16 years in prison for orchestrating the murder.

“You picked a real firecracker,” teases Jared Leto, who looks unrecognizable as a husky Paolo Gucci. (Leto told ET Canada in May that his “complete transformation” for the role took “about five hours of prosthetics every morning.”)   

Driver’s Maurizio Gucci agrees that Reggiani is indeed “a handful.”

“House of Gucci” features a star-studded cast, including Al Pacino, Jeremy Irons, Camille Cottin, Jack Huston, Reeve Carney and Salma Hayek.

In April, Patrizia Gucci, one of Maurizio’s second cousins, voiced concern that the film goes beyond the headline-grabbing true-crime story and pries into the private lives of the Guccio Gucci heirs. (Guccio Gucci founded the luxury fashion house that bears his name nearly a century ago in Florence.)

“We are truly disappointed. I speak on behalf of the family,” Patrizia Gucci told the Associated Press. “They are stealing the identity of a family to make a profit, to increase the income of the Hollywood system….Our family has an identity, privacy. We can talk about everything. But there is a borderline that cannot be crossed.”
