House of Gucci official trailer

The first trailer for Ridley Scott’s House of Gucci is here, and fans have nothing but praise for Lady Gaga’s Italian accent.

The crime film stars Lady Gaga as Patrizia Reggiani, the former wife of Maurizio Gucci (Adam Driver), who was the head of the Gucci fashion house in the Eighties.

Reggiani was convicted in 1998 of ordering her former husband’s murder. Gucci was shot dead in 1995 outside his office in Milan. The pair had split in 1985.

The plot of the film is based on the lead-up to the trial of Reggiani, who was convicted and imprisoned for 18 years for orchestrating the assassination.

The film also stars Jared Leto as Paolo Gucci, Al Pacino as Aldo Gucci, and Salma Hayek as Giuseppina.

Gaga’s fans have been left impressed by the “Born This Way” singer’s accent.

Rotten Tomatoes’ editor-in-chief Joel Meares wrote: “Omg so #HouseOfGucci is basically Succession with better locations and fancier clothes and retro vibes and Lady Gaga doing THAT accent? Sign me the f**k up.”

“Lady Gaga has a crisp, flawless accent. Total in control of her character. And she doesn’t lose that charm and mystery as an actress, the reason why she became the darling of the awards season during A Star Is Born. #HouseOfGucci,” wrote another person.

Some even compared the 35-year-old singer’s accent to that of Donatella Versace's.

“I don’t even know Italian but I just know she nailed her accent there, it sounded right and it felt so f*****g right!!!” wrote another fan.

House of Gucci is scheduled for release in the US and the UK on 24 November and 26 November, respectively, with this year marking the 100th anniversary of the creation of the house of Gucci.

The film is based on the 2012 bookThe House of Gucci: A Sensational Story of Murder, Madness, Glamour, and Greedby Sara Gay Forden.
