Lady Gaga sang a stirring rendition of The Star-Spangled Banner at Joe Biden and Kamala Harris’ inauguration ceremony on Wednesday. The singer’s performance was on point as always, but it was her eccentric outfit that caught the attention of Twitterverse.
Designed by Daniel Roseberry, Gaga’s outfit at the Inauguration Day was a custom Schiaparelli Haute Couture comprised of a skirt in washed red silk faille and a navy, cashmere fitted jacket with a gilded dove of peace brooch. She was also wearing a pair of black leather gloves and was rocking an updo with a twisted braid woven with black fabric. Completing her look were an all-gold microphone and golden in-ear monitors accented by flowers around her ears.
A lot of people on Twitter loved Gaga’s outfit, and some of them couldn’t help but point out the Hunger Games vibes it gave off.

So was Lady Gaga’s outfit a Hunger Games allusion? Or was that just my imagination?

The pop star’s look also reminded people of Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence), who also wore braids in her hair in the Hunger Games franchise.
Is lady Gaga’s outfit giving anyone else Katniss mockingjay vibes or is it just me?!

Others, meanwhile, compared Gaga’s posh attire to those worn by Effie Trinket (Elizabeth Banks) in the film series.

Twitter users, including The Hunger Games official Twitter account, also commented that the dove of peace brooch on Gaga’s outfit looks a lot like a Mockingjay pin.

One fan also tweeted that the singer’s arrival at the inaugural ceremony felt like a reaping ceremony in The Hunger Games franchise.

Lady Gaga’s inaugural wardrobe comes after she made a dramatic entrance in Washington, D.C. on Tuesday, wearing a Givenchy white cape dress that she paired with a matching turtle neck and face mask. With a braided updo, the singer’s look was seemingly inspired by Leia Organa (Carrie Fisher) from the Star Wars franchise.
I pray tomorrow will be a day of peace for all Americans. A day for love, not hatred. A day for acceptance not fear. A day for dreaming of our future joy as a country. A dream that is non-violent, a dream that provides safety for our souls. Love, from the Capitol 🇺🇸 pic.twitter.com/fATHiJHCq0
