It takes a bold woman to pull off a dress as daring as Versace’s infamous ‘safety pin’ gown, but if anyone was going to try, of course it would be Lady Gaga.
The singer donned the barely there creation in Milan on Tuesday, 18 years after Elizabeth Hurley first made jaws drop while wearing the dress to the London premiere of Hugh Grant’s Four Weddings and a Funeral.
The black silk and lycra creation plunges at the neckline and has a super-revealing slit, held together at the upper thigh and along the sides with a few golden safety pins. Gaga accessorized the gown with dangling gold earrings and major platform boots, while Hurley went a simpler route, adding hoops, a clutch and basic black heels.
‘That Dress’ (yes, it even has its own Wikipedia page) made Hurley a star — and probably made then-beau Grant very happy. But what will it do for Gaga, aside from drawing comparisons to Hurley? That remains to be seen. Tell us: Who wears the dress best? Vote in our poll below!
