Lady Gaga wore a “bulletproof dress" to Joe Biden’s inauguration.

The 35-year-old pop star has hailed her Schiaparelli Haute Couture frock — which she wore at the United States President's swearing-in ceremony in January — as armour-like and one of her favourite "ever" designs.

The ‘Stupid Love' singer told British Vogue in a video titled Life in Looks: “This is one of my favourite things I’ve ever worn. I wore this Schiaparelli design for the inauguration, and nobody knows this, but this a bulletproof dress.”

The gown — a structured navy jacket with a full silk red skirt — was designed by the fashion house’s creative director Daniel Roseberry, but Gaga didn't go into more details on the outfit's protective qualities.

However, the A Star is Born actress gave additional insight into why the dress was meaningful to her as it represented her “heritage as an Italian-American".

She elaborated: "And I knew, Schiaparelli being an Italian fashion house, it was something that I really, really wanted to do for my heritage as an Italian-American woman that would be singing for President 45 to be leaving and to invite President 46 into office."

Gaga also reflected on the impressive gold dove brooch that complemented the look and added an opulent flair.

She said: "When I saw that golden dove, I just knew that this was the right piece."

Gaga's outfit isn't the only fond memory she has of the special day in Washington, D.C., as she mused she’ll “never forget” her escort to the microphone, Marine Captain Evan Campbell.

The ‘A Star is Born’ Academy Award winner added: “I’ll never forget speaking to this young man that I was with. He was asking me if I was nervous and I said yes. But sometimes, fashion can really give you wings… like a dove.”

Back in January, the 12-time Grammy Award-winner has gushed about her time at the presidential ceremony, saying, “It was the honour of my lifetime."

In the Looks in Life video, Gaga also talked about the giant latex egg-shaped vessel she arrived in at the 2011 Grammys.

She shared that her team went to extreme lengths to track down some latex and ended up purchasing the material, which was typically only available at sex shops at the time, in vast quantities from a bus company.

She spilled: “We would call this an outfit. Everyone calls this the egg but it’s actually a vessel that was designed by Hussein Chalayan.

“I was very particular about the way the fashion looked for this performance in so much as the night before the performance I said, ‘The fashion’s wrong, we don’t have it. We need it to be latex. We need nude latex.'

Gaga added: “I was in the egg for three days.

“To be honest, at award shows, especially during this time, I didn’t like to talk to people. I always felt that it threw me off with my performance so this in a lot of ways is really representative of my devotion to my craft in that I really wanted to be with myself.”

Gaga will next be seen in House of Gucci, the true story of the family behind the Italian fashion empire; it opens in Singapore cinemas on Jan 20, 2022.  Watch the entire Looks in Life video here:
