On August 31, Lady Gaga officially began her Las Vegas residency, titled Lady Gaga: Jazz & Piano. In behind-the-scenes photos of a rehearsal, which she shared on August 23, the multi-hyphenate looked like she stepped straight into the ‘50s with her blonde hair styled into a pinned updo with a pouf in her hair and lips coated in crimson. For her first day, she looked to the past once again and performed with ’40s-inspired hair and glossy red lips.
Gaga shared two separate posts on Instagram right before heading on stage. In her first photo, which she posted about an hour and a half before the show, her platinum-blonde hair was tied behind her with a big spit curl hanging down atop her forehead. On the opposite side at her sideburns lied another, smaller spit curl.
Makeup artist Sarah Tanno went for a classic cat eye and red lip to complement the retro hair. You can also see the white liner Tanno drew on Gaga’s lower lash line, which makes the eyes look bigger and brighter.
