Lady Gaga Goes Back to Blonde - and Snags a Dress Just Off the Dior Couture Runway - for the 2019 SAG Awards

Lady Gaga made a dramatic entrance at the SAG Awards before joining fiancé Christian Carino at the end of the carpet

Lady Gaga made a grand entrance at the 2019 Screen Actors Guild Awards thanks to her show-stopping Dior Haute Couture gown, which she showed off to great effect as she posed on the red carpet.

Gaga walked the carpet wearing a plunging white gown with shredded tulle details and a super-high slit over tulle briefs – which was seen on the brand’s Couture runway less than a week ago. She added a choker, shining earrings (both Tiffany & Co.) and white Jimmy Choo pumps, plus some super Old Hollywood glam via her dark lips and earrings.

It’s a big night for the actress, who’s nominated for outstanding performance by a female actor in a leading role for her performance in A Star Is Born. Gaga was previously nominated for best actress at the Golden Globe Awards and won for best original song for “Shallow” alongside songwriters Mark Ronson, Andrew Wyatt and Anthony Rossomando.

She will present tonight alongside her A Star Is Born costar and director Cooper (reuniting from their live performance of “Shallow” at her Las Vegas residency Saturday) and costar Sam Elliott, who are both up for acting nominations in best actor and best supporting actor categories, respectfully.

The movie’s entire cast is also up for a big award of the night — outstanding performance by a cast in a motion picture.

Noticeably absent alongside Gaga as she hit one dramatic pose after another was her fiancé Christian Carino, though he joined her to walk into the awards show.

Cooper was without his plus one from the Golden Globes, girlfriend Irina Shayk, who was busy with work in Moscow; instead, Cooper walked the carpet with his mom Gloria Campano (who received a hug from Gaga inside the event).

Gaga and Carino have kept their relationship relatively low-key since they were first spotted together in February 2017 getting affectionate at a Kings of Leon concert. In October 2018 Gaga officially announced their engagement when she thanked her “fiancé” at Elle’s 25th Annual Women in Hollywood Celebration.

  • The official pre-show, People, Entertainment Weekly and TNT Red Carpet Live: 25th Screen Actors Guild Awards, will livestream beginning at 5:30 p.m. ET/2:30 p.m. PT on,, and, in addition to being broadcast live in Times Square.

An insider previously told PEOPLE that “Christian is a good, grounding force and understands her career. She’s in a great place now.”

Carino has worked with a number of big-name stars throughout his career, representing Justin Bieber, Amber Heard, Christina Aguilera, Simon Cowell, Miley Cyrus and Jennifer Lopez.

And he has been Gaga’s number one fan since they started dating. A fan account noticed that Carino has a tattoo of Gaga’s face on his upper left bicep. It appears to be an image of Gaga donning long black pigtails from her V Magazine’sAsia‘ cover shoot in 2011.
