“Thank you to the New York Film Critics Circle for recognizing my performance as best actress this year,” she said in her tearful speech.

“I can’t even [believe I get to] hear myself say it. In doing so, you have recognized all the women in my family, because it was through them that I was able to create the heart and soul of this character, the one that she deserved.”

Taking to the stage to pick up her award, the Born This Way hitmaker wore a simple but sexy black ballgown from Jason Wu’s Fall 2022 collection.

The sensational silk taffeta gown features a bustier-style curved bodice, a strapless neckline, and a full tiered skirt with a short train.

Lady Gaga kept the look simple and elegant with minimal accessories, adding only a pair of Cluster earrings and a $38,200 Narrow Alternating bracelet, both by Tiffany & Co.

As for her footwear, the Poker Face singer traded her signature sky-high heels for a pair of Mary Jane platform pumps from Amina Muaddi.

Called the “Yigit” and available at Ssense, these silk-satin pumps added edge to Gaga’s look with 2-inch angular platforms, pointed toes, and 6-inch high heels.

To complete her look, Lady Gaga swept her tresses into a side-parted updo and left a curled tendril to frame one side of her softly made-up face.

She wore a hint of shimmering pink eyeshadow, winged eyeliner, and pink lip color.

The 35-year-old singer and actress brought the glamour in her forest green gown from the luxury clothing brand that perfectly highlighted her hourglass figure.
