The Shallow singer stunned in a gigantic yellow diamond, which was previously worn by Audrey Hepburn in the classic 1961 film Breakfast at Tiffany's.

Lady Gaga turned heads at the Oscars when she turned up on the red carpet wearing a stunning 128.54-carat diamond necklace from Tiffany & Co.

The A Star is Born singer, who performed the film's Oscar-winning track with co-star Bradley Cooper after it won the Academy Award for Best Song, accessorised the blinging necklace with a black Alexander McQueen evening gown.

However, the gigantic yellow diamond has an incredible story of its own - it was once worn by Audrey Hepburn in the 1961 film Breakfast at Tiffany's.

Breakfast at Tiffany's is a romantic comedy starring Audrey Hepburn as a New York socialite looking for a rich man to marry.

The necklace, which has an incredible value of £23 million, has been slightly altered for a modern day look, with its original pearl choker replaced with a single string of diamonds.

Gaga's appearance in the show-stopping piece of jewellery marks the first time the diamond had been seen on a red carpet.
