Lady Gaga has given us a first look at her character in the upcoming film House of Gucci, and she looks stunning! We've also got a look at the rest of the cast.

In a promotional poster shared to the ‘Rain On Me’ singer’s Instagram on Thursday (29 July), the star appears as the Italian socialite Patrizia Reggiani, who she'll portray in the Ridley Scott-directed crime biopic.

In March, the singer uploaded another snapshot from behind the scenes with co-star Adam Driver, who plays Reggiani's late husband and former head of Gucci, Maurizo Gucci.

“Starsera”

Lady Gaga captioned her post with “Stasera” meaning “this evening” or “tonight” in Italian. Hopefully, this means more information is on the way soon!

Haus of Gucci tells the story of the killing of Maurizo in 1995 by a hired assassin and also stars Jared Leto, Jeremy Irons and Al Pacino. 

The movie follows Gaga's Oscar-nominated turn in 2018's A Star Is Born. Co-star Adam Driver was meanwhile nominated for the Best Actor Oscar last year for his role in Netflix's Marriage Story, and in 2019 for BlackKklansman.

The Twitter account for the film has also posted the remaining cast photos featuring Driver, Jeremy Irons, Al Pacino, and an unrecognisable Jared Leto! 

The House of Gucci has been inspired by the 2001 book The House of Gucci: A Sensational Story of Murder, Madness, Glamour, and Greed by Sara Gay Forden.

The film is due in cinemas in the UK on 26 November.
