Yates explains the wedding ring that Gaga sports in the film (not on display at the exhibit) was a piece of costume jewelry — and she had two copies.

Director Ridley Scott added in a statement, “Making this film has been an extraordinarily rewarding experience, and this exhibition serves as an extension and showcase of the terrific work by my remarkable team of artists.”

Aside from the costumes on display, rare photography and film footage is also part of the exhibit which runs through Dec. 4.
