Lady Gaga revealed the meaning behind that giant gold brooch which she wore to the Biden-Harris Inauguration ceremony.

The Star is Born actress and singer turned heads with her billowing, floor-length custom Schiaparelli red gown which she wore with a black long-sleeved jumper, black leather gloves and one of the best mascaras that made her eyes stand out in the crowds.

But it was her giant gold brooch that looked like it had been made from one of the best jewellery making kits that stood out the most.

And while viewers around the world took to Twitter to pass comment on her choice of formal wear, having likened the dove brooch to The Hunger Games Katniss Everdeen's mockingjay pin, Gaga herself, whose complexion was glowing naturally like these best foundation, spoke out on her eye-catching accessory.

'A dove carrying an olive branch. May we all make peace with each other,' Gaga wrote after her performance of the national anthem at the inauguration of President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris on Wednesday 20 January.

She hoped it would unite the divided nation - and it did just that by getting people talking about it.

Her well-thought-out outfit complemented the gold microphone that she used to belt out a powerful rendition of The Star-Spangled Banner, shortly before the former senator and two-term VP Biden and history-making former Sen. Harris took their oaths of office.

It's not the first time Gaga has spoken out on peace, during rehearsals at the US capitol, she sent a prayer of peace in response to the violent attack on 6 January when a mob of Donald Trump supporters stormed the building. 

She captioned a photo of her under the Capitol Rotunda, 'I pray tomorrow will be a day of peace for all Americans. A day for love, not hatred. A day for acceptance not fear. A day for dreaming of our future joy as a country. A dream that is non-violent, a dream that provides safety for our souls. Love, from the Capitol.'

Meanwhile, she wasn't the only one with a secret message. Kamala Harris hidden message behind her inauguration outfit has been revealed.

This inauguration theme was "America United," which was perfectly symbolized by the color scheme of Harris's outfit. The choice of purple was a clear message about the combination of red and blue, i.e., both the Republican and Democratic parties' unification.
