Jared Leto is unrecognisable in the first trailer for Sir Ridley Scott's upcoming drama House of Gucci.

The Oscar-winning actor and singer, 49, plays Paolo Gucci — former vice president and managing director of Gucci — in the forthcoming crime thriller which also stars Lady Gaga and Adam Driver.

Leto sports a receding hairline, moustache, heavy facial prosthetics and a ripe Italian accent in the first look teaser.

Gaga portrays Patrizia Reggiani, the ex-wife of Maurizio Gucci, played by Adam Driver.

Maurizio was the grandson of Gucci’s founder and was murdered in 1995 by a hitman hired by his former spouse.

Driver, meanwhile, is seen in a pinstriped suit and aviator-style glasses, and Al Pacino and Jeremy Irons are also introduced as members of the cast.

House Of Gucci is Gaga’s first film since her Oscar-nominated turn in 2018’s A Star Is Born.

Reggiani, a socialite and high fashion personality, was convicted of orchestrating the murder.
