Fans of Lady Gaga’s “Hunger Games”-inspired inauguration brooch, rejoice: the odds have finally shifted in your favour.
During her performance at President Joe Biden’s swearing-in ceremony in January, the 34-year-old pop star’s larger-than-life gold Schiaparelli dove stole the show, with many on social media comparing it to a Mockingjay pin.
And now, “Little Monsters” can get a similar version of the symbolic accessory from Schiaparelli, Bergdorf Goodman, and Dover Street Market — for a price.
The dove brooch will be available in four sizes beginning Thursday, ranging from a six-centimetre gold version for $790 to a 12-centimetre white bird for $2,150; Gaga’s custom version was even larger.
The high price tag, however, benefits a charitable cause, with all funds raised going directly to the superstar’s Born This Way Foundation.
The non-profit, which she co-founded with her mother Cynthia Germanotta, aims to de-stigmatize mental illness and provide support to young people who are struggling with their mental health.
Cynthia told Vogue, “My daughter and I, along with the young people we work with every day, believe kindness is the way forward,”
“We couldn’t be more grateful to have the proceeds from the Schiaparelli Dove, a beautiful symbol of hope and new beginnings, benefit our work and mission to build a kinder, braver world.”
Lady Gaga accessorized her original brooch with an haute couture ensemble designed by Schiaparelli, which included a sweeping red skirt and a fitted navy jacket.
