Dom Pérignon x Lady Gaga: a collaboration that gives back
Earlier in 2021, the paths of Dom Pérignon and Lady Gaga crossed in an inspired collaboration, sparked by a shared belief in creative freedom. Beyond creation, Dom Pérignon has long been drawn to Lady Gaga’s generosity, as she has been at the forefront of empowerment and well-being issues for 10 years. Generosity forges an essential foundation of their collaboration today.
Through artistic collaborations, Dom Pérignon stands with creators to support their causes and foundations, including Lenny Kravitz and the Let Love Rule Foundation, which provides care and raises funds for communities in need. This year, as part of their collaboration with Lady Gaga, Dom Pérignon announced that it would support Born This Way Foundation.
One limited-edition sculpture, two ways to embrace generosity
The Dom Pérignon donation centered upon a series of limited-edition sculptures created by Lady Gaga for Dom Pérignon, in association with creative and fashion director Nicola Formichetti. From the very inception of the piece, Dom Pérignon pledged to donate the entirety of its profits from sales of the sculpture to Born This Way Foundation, a nonprofit co-founded by Lady Gaga and her mother, Cynthia Germanotta, which aims to create a kinder and braver world.
“What I love most about this sculpture is that it is made with a deep purpose. Generosity always makes a difference, and I’m honored that Dom Pérignon is kind enough to give back as part of our collaboration,” said Lady Gaga.
Furthermore, Dom Pérignon widened the circle of giving back with a new way to support Lady Gaga’s cause. The Maison partnered with Born This Way Foundation to create a charitable sweepstakes offering participants around the world a chance to win the most exclusive limited-edition sculpture of them all: the N° 1 in the numbered series, hand-signed by Lady Gaga. The sweepstakes closed on World Kindness Day, and Dom Pérignon donated all funds raised to Born This Way Foundation.
“An act of kindness is more important today than ever before. At Born This Way Foundation, we are very appreciative of the generous donation from Dom Pérignon and also Lady Gaga’s passionate fans around the world who participated in the charitable sweepstakes,” said Cynthia Germanotta, President and Co-Founder of Born This Way Foundation. “Moments like these help fuel our belief that we can and will build a kinder, braver world – together.”

About Dom Pérignon Rosé
When Dom Pérignon chooses to be rosé, it is a radical declaration of freedom. Freedom to explore, to cast aside conventions and push the boundaries of creation. Dom Pérignon Rosé springs from this desire to dare, seizing the red of the Pinot Noir grape in its primal radiance, capturing its vital power in a bold, assertive assemblage.
