They have been hard at work on filming The House Of Gucci in Italy.

And Lady Gaga, 35, was seen stepping out on the Ridley Scott production alongside onscreen husband Adam Driver, 37, and Camille Cottin in Rome, Italy, on Friday. 

Call My Agent star Camille, 42, portrays Paola Franchi in the film, the woman who Maurizio Gucci, played by Adam, was dating when his estranged wife Patrizia Reggiani, played by Gaga, hired a hitman to kill him.

Wow! Lady Gaga oozed glamour in a black faux-fur coat as she joined Adam Driver and Camille Cottin on the set of Ridley Scott’s The House Of Gucci in Rome, Italy, on Friday

Gaga, real name Stefani Germanotta, oozed glamour as she transformed into Reggiani and stepped out on set in a black coat that had a faux-fur lining.

She looked stylish in a black midi dress that was encrusted with pearls and she boosted her height in a pair of chic black heels.

Offsetting her sombre look, Gaga carried a red snakeskin-print handbag to complete her character’s wardrobe, and she wore a brunette wig.

Camille, meanwhile, was seen wearing a white pleated summer dress for her scenes with co-star Adam, which saw her see him off as he got into his sports car.

Camille, who plays Andréa Martel in Call My Agent, kept off the winter chill by wearing a light pink cardigan and white strappy heels.

Her blonde locks were styled into loose waves that fell over her shoulder and she wore a light palette of make-up for the day of filming.

Adam, meanwhile, looked dapper in a grey shirt that he tucked into beige trousers that were fastened with a Gucci belt.

While Adam and Camille were seen filming scenes together, Gaga was not with them and was pictured being taken to set separately by crew members.

The trio appeared to be filming different scenes to Thursday, which saw Adam in character run for his life away from a gunman as he was shot down. Maurizio was gunned down outside his office by hitman Benedetto Ceraulo in 1995.

Later on in the day, Adam and Lady Gaga were seen shooting new scenes together with director Ridley Scott giving them advice before cameras began rolling.

The pair appeared to be talking animatedly with each other during the scene, with Adam raising his hands in the air during one moment.

The film, which documents Reggiani’s sensational plot to murder her ex-husband, is based on the novel The House of Gucci: A Sensational Story of Murder, Madness, Glamour, and Greed by author Sara Gay Forden. 

Reggiani 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.

She was also said to be furious her former husband had started seeing other women, and feared her daughters’ $170million inheritance was at risk if he remarried before ordering the hit.

She also wanted more than the $650,000 she had been offered in a divorce settlement, the court heard.

Reggiani eventually hired hitman Benedetto Ceraulo, a debt-ridden pizzeria owner who shot Gucci dead on the steps of his office in Milan as he arrived for work. Ceraulo was convicted and sentenced to life in prison.

She was convicted after her clairvoyant and confidante Pina Auriemma turned informer and told police about the plot.

During the murder trial, which transfixed Italy, Reggiani arrived each day wearing head-to-toe Gucci clothes and accessories.

The court heard how she had ordered the murder of her husband after he offered her $650,000 in a divorce settlement.

She was initially sentenced to 29 years in 1998, which was reduced to 26 on appeal. She served 18 – with her pet ferret Bambi as a companion for some of the time – before being released in October 2014.

Having Bambi by her side was a special privilege negotiated by her lawyers — however he was to suffer an unfortunate demise when a fellow inmate accidentally sat on him.

Well-known for her luxury lifestyle, Reggiani once said: ‘I’d rather cry in a Rolls than be happy on a bicycle’ and turned down the offer of day release while in prison because it would have meant doing ‘menial’ work.

In 2017 a court ruled Reggiani was entitled to receive £900,000 a year from her ex-husband’s fortune and she was given a lump sum of £16million for her time in prison.

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

In the early 1990s it was hit by problems and he sold the label for $120 million, just two years before his death.

It comes after the heirs to Gucci aired their concerns about their depiction.  

The great-grandchildren of Gucci fashion empire founder Guccio Gucci have appealed to filmmaker Scott to respect their family’s legacy in the new movie that focuses on a sensational murder. 

The new film is scheduled to go on general release from November 24 2021.

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.
