‘I wear the pants’: Lady Gaga reveals reason behind oversize suit in powerful speech

Lady Gaga was making more than a fashion statement during Monday night’s Elle Annual Women in Hollywood Celebration.

Donning an oversize Marc Jacobs pantsuit, Gaga took the stage to deliver an emotionally raw acceptance speech that touched on sexual abuse, mental health and the burdening beauty standards place on women in Hollywood.

“I decided today I wanted to take the power back. Today, I wear the pants,” she said onstage. 

Her outfit offered a striking contrast to the glamorous gowns she’s worn while promoting “A Star is Born,” a role that has generated major Oscar buzz. The pop star said her preparation for the event, formed to honor powerful women in entertainment, began the same way.
