From a bold periwinkle dye job to pretty in pink neon shadow, Lady Gaga is never one to shy away from a transformative beauty risk. It should come as no surprise then, that the singer that the singer chose a larger than life eyeliner statement last night at the launch of her new makeup line, Haus Laboratories – one that recalled a certain Italian fashion icon and designer.

For the star-studded party in Santa Monica that took place in a giant hangar with 500 of her beauty friends, Gaga slipped on a long sleeved lace ensemble, then changed into a curve-hugging black sequined frock. But all eyes were on the Oscar winner’s graphically lined, exaggerated lids—this was a makeup party, after all—which were the work of Gaga’s co-founder and expert artist, Sarah Tanno.

And just ahead of Versace’s Spring 2020 show this week in Milan, it seemed Gaga was channeling Donatella herself, with platinum waves that extended past her waist and a set of kohl rimmed eyes. Intentional or not, the singer demanded the kind of attention that a soon-to-be successful beauty mogul definitely deserves.
