No "Bad Romance" here!

The Academy Awards doubled as a date night for Lady Gaga, who attended the 88th Oscars with fianceé Taylor Kinney.

Dressed in a "gown suit" designed by best friend Brandon Maxwell, the Best Original Song nominee walked the red carpet with her beau – who waited patiently while she did interviews – in tow.

During the show, the singer took to Instagram, posting a picture of her and Kinney sharing a kiss.

"I never thought anyone would ever love me because I felt like my body was ruined by my abuser. But he loves the survivor in me. He's stood by me all night proud and unashamedly. THATS a real man," Gaga, who was raped when she was 19, wrote in the caption.

It's been a whirlwind award season for the pair, who also attended last month's Golden Globes, where Gaga took home the best performance by an actress in a limited series or motion picture trophy for her work in American Horror Story: Hotel.

A few years after meeting on the set of her 2011 music video "Yoü and I," the Chicago Fire actor popped the question on Valentine's Day in 2014.





The 88th annual Academy Awards, hosted by Chris Rock, are being presented live on ABC from the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood, California.
