She wrote: "I will never forget tonight. #Oscars thank you Azzedine Alaia for this stunning piece. It took 1600 hrs of embroidery and 25 people in Paris, he's never before made a dress for the Oscars. What an honor. The gloves were hand dyed Crimson, baby orchid blooms hand painted in my hair and killer pear shaped diamonds by Lorraine Schwartz. Hair and makeup @fredericaspiras and @sarahtannomakeup. The brainchild of Azzedine and my dear friend and stylist @brandonvmaxwell ❤️"

However, the Applause singer's red gloves caught the attention of fans and Twitter exploded with funny memes.
