Lady Gaga will wed in style according to reports, which claim her wedding dress will be made by designer Donatella Versace.

The star is rumoured to be marrying her long-term boyfriend Taylor Kinney this summer, and designer friend Versace could be the one to design her dress.

Gaga has apparently requested a black and gold silk dress with a diamond embroidered bodice, and a detachable skirt and train.

A source told The Sun, "Gaga’s spending millions on her wedding to Taylor Kinney and Donatella Versace’s designing a typically over-the-top dress which on its own will cost thousands. She thinks white is cheesy and wants black and gold silk with all these crazy removable bits."

Lady Gaga's friend DJ Lady Starlight, who has toured with the star, recently said that the pair can't wait to get married - and that it could be as soon as this summer.

Lady Starlight, who was worked with Gaga both on stage and in the studio, told the Daily Star, "She’s told me he’s the one and you know that instantly when you see them together.”

"They were made for each other. At first I thought he was too hot to be cool but now I think he’s totally ­awesome."

She continued, "From all I’ve heard, I don’t think I’m dropping a secret by saying they are ready to get hitched this year. There’s a summer period when his shooting schedule will be clear and her ­concert and studio commitments will be minimal, so expect an announcement some time soon.

"She spends so much time in Chicago, because that’s where Taylor needs to be. So when she has time to be wherever she wants to be, she’ll be with him."
