It’s common knowledge in the fashion world that, when you can land the cover of American Vogue, you’ve officially “made it” in the industry. And if that’s true, who would have thought we’d see the day when Lady Gaga – proud wearer of the infamous dress-o’-meat, would ever grace the cover of the world’s biggest name in fashion. But that day has arrived, and so have the leaked promotional images from Vogue of their March cover girl, in all of her pink-haired glory. In true Gaga fashion, the pop songstress is sporting a cotton candy-colored wig – but to make her look cover-worthy, she’s sporting an up-and-coming designer, who even Karl Lagerfeld himself admires. Read on for more information about the shoot, and exactly what Gaga is wearing on the cover.
As outrageous as Gaga’s fashion sense tends to be, it seems only fitting that the “Bad Romance” crooner would grace the cover of Vogue’s annual “Power Issue.” After all, this is one Lady in Hollywood who refuses to conform to anyone else’s idea of what’s beautiful. She’s unabashedly unapologetic about her wild style – and that’s one of the things we love most about Gaga. When asked what she wears on her days off, she’s gone on the record to say she dresses like Lady Gaga all the time. Honestly, we can’t say we believe she goes to the butcher to shop around for lazy Sunday lounge clothes, but we admire her boldness in the media.
On her March Vogue cover, Gaga is in true form, rocking a baby pink bob like no one in the industry can. Her frothy, filmy cream-colored frock is apparently by Haider Ackermann, the designer Karl Lagerfeld has said wishes would take over Chanel when his reign finally ends. In fashion, that’s just about the highest compliment you can receive – and we’re not surprised Lady Gaga chose such a powerful fashion force.
The photos were shot by famed photographer Mario Testino – and the artistry and beauty oozes from the images. Even though we’re not daring enough to pull off Gaga style, we adore these cover images and think she was a great choice to cover the “Power Issue.” What do you think of these photos? Will you be picking up a copy when the issue hits newsstands this month?
