She recently received a big bunch of flowers from her US-based partner Michael Polansky as she marked her 35th birthday in Rome.

And Lady Gaga was back to business as she continued to shoot scenes for Ridley Scott’s House of Gucci in Rome on Good Friday.

The singer, 35, brushed her teeth while getting touch-ups as she joined co-star Jack Huston, who emerged on set for the first time since filming kicked off last month.

Ensuring she fully emulated her look, the musician cleaned her gnashers and sported a bold outfit for another day of filming.

The actress, who plays Patrizia Reggiana in the film, caught the eye in a patterned shirt and a chocolate-toned skirt.

Gaga stars as ‘Black Widow’ opposite her on-screen husband Adam Driver, heir to the celebration Italian fashion empire.

The movie documents Patrizia Gucci’s plot to murder her ex-husband Maurizio, with Reggiani found guilty of paying a hit man £240,000 to murder him in 1995.

Ever the dedicated actress, the musician has physically transformed for the role by ditching her signature blonde or pastel locks for a deep chocolate brunette look.

Patrizia was found guilty of paying a hit man €300,000 (£240,000) to murder 46–year–old Gucci, an heir to the fashion empire.

Her husband had left her for another woman 10 years previously after telling her he was going on a short business trip, from which he never returned. 

The 72-year-old also wanted more than the $650,000 she had been offered in a divorce settlement, the court heard. 

Patrizia was initially sentenced to 29 years in 1998, which was reduced to 26 on appeal, and was released in October 2014.

The Gucci empire 

The fashion empire of Gucci was founded in 1921 by Guccio Gucci, a Florentine leather merchant whose business of selling leather travel bags prospered after the Depression and World War Two.

Guccio’s son Aldo expanded the business into Paris, New York and Tokyo as the ‘twin Gs’ of the family name became a worldwide fashion icon.

By 1974, the Gucci empire numbered 14 stores and 46 franchised boutiques around the world.

At around the same time, celebrities like Jackie Kennedy were helping establish Gucci as the world’s leading fashion brand by embracing its products.

Maurizio Gucci, Guccio’s grandson and Aldo’s nephew, took control of the company from the board of directors after Aldo, who was sent to prison for tax evasion in 1986 aged 81.

However, Maurizio would be the last member of the family to head the Gucci business.

By 1989, nearly 50 per cent of the business had been bought out by Investcorp, a group of investment bankers angling for shares of the business.

In 1993, Maurizio sold his holding for $170m to a Bahrain-based investment company.

Maurizio was the grandson of Guccio Gucci, founder of the fashion company made famous with its double G logo. 

The film is based on the bestselling novel The House of Gucci: A Sensational Story of Murder, Madness, Glamour, and Greed by author Sara Gay Forden. 

The upcoming film is scheduled to go on general release from November 24.
