The Ridley Scott directed film - which is currently filming around Rome and Lake Como - tells the story of the assassination of former head of the Gucci fashion house Maurizio Gucci (Adam Brody) orchestrated his ex-wife Patrizia Reggiani.
People who loved watching The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story should definitely check out House of Gucci when it arrives in cinemas later this year.
The film is based on the novel The House of Gucci: A Sensational Story of Murder, Madness, Glamour, and Greed which recounts the famous Gucci family dynasty and and the real-life downfall of Patrizia, who was convicted of plotting Maurizio Gucci's murder.
The fashion boss was shot outside his office in Milan in 1995, with his ex-wife sentenced to 29 years in prison for orchestrating the assassination.
Lady Gaga debuted an official first look at the film - which is sure to be an incredibly chic albeit bloody affair - on her Instagram page. The picture sees Gaga and Adam as their characters, dressed in gorgeous, retro winter clothes fit for any snowy mountain top.
The Stupid Love singer bears a strong resemblance to the Italian socialite, dripping in gold jewellery and wearing a white fur hat.
She captioned the behind-the-scenes snap "Signore e Signora Gucci," or "Mr. and Mrs. Gucci."
Adam Driver's chunky white cable-knit jumper rivals the one worn by Chris Evans in Knives Out. Chris' jumper became so popular someone made a Twitter account for it.
The second season of American Crime Story explored similar themes of murder in the fashion world by delving into the murder of designer Gianni Versace by spree killer Andrew Cunanan, based on Maureen Orth's book Vulgar Favors: Andrew Cunanan, Gianni Versace, and the Largest Failed Manhunt in U.S. History.
The series starred Édgar Ramírez as Gianni Versace and Darren Criss as Andrew Cunnan. Ricky Martin played Gianni's partner Antonio D'Amico and Penélope Cruz appeared as Donatella Versace.
House of Gucci is Lady Gaga's acting follow-up to A Star Is Born, her feature acting debut that garnered universal acclaim and an Oscar nomination for Best Actress.
Gaga won the Oscar for Best Original Song thanks to that blockbuster ballad we all know and love 'Shallow'.
House of Gucci is scheduled to be released in cinemas on 24th November.
