The 23-year-old sensation tweeted “They used to call me rabbit teeth in school, and now I’m a real live VOGUE BEAUTY QUEEN!” as a heartfelt preview of her first ever Vogue cover shot by legendary fashion photographer, Mario Testino.
Although the only available image of the cover is small and blurry (repurposed here from what seems to be a cell phone photo), we can say the shot is nothing short of high-fashion with a Gaga twist. Wearing a Haider Ackermann jumpsuit and short pink bob — a bold move for Vogue — the pop queen looks oddly ethereal yet fierce.
The feature article’s title, “Born This Way,” is of the same name as Lady Gaga’s newest single — set to premiere a few days before Valentine’s Day — off her new album which will drop in the Spring. Number one Gaga fan Perez Hilton recently released the lyrics to the gay anthem, calling it “a smash.”
Do you think Lady Gaga is pop music’s reigning queen? Does she look good on the cover of Vogue?
