I’ve already brought you David and Victoria Beckham’s respective September issue covers, but now it is the turn of pop supremo Lady Gaga, who graces the September cover of the most prestigious magazine in fashion – Vogue.
The September issue is the most important issue in fashion, so it seems only fitting that Vogue would choose the most famous woman in the world to be their 2012 cover star.
This year marks the 120th Anniversary of Vogue and the much-coveted cover, which was shot by Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott and styled by Marc Jacobs sees Gaga in a mermaid-inspired gown, with the tagline, “Think You Know Gaga? Think again.”
It is Gaga’s second Vogue cover and this time, the Born This Way singer has really upped the ante, in this fuchsia style extravaganza.
The 26-year-old superstar tells the magazine about her philosophy on making music, saying,
“I don’t really make records for people to listen to and go, ‘Wow, she’s a genius’. I’d really like you to order a drink, maybe kiss the person you came with that evening, or rediscover something about your past that makes you feel even more brave.”
Despite being one of the biggest singers on the planet, Lady Gaga admits that there are times when she favours anonymity and loves to act “irresponsibly” and like I’m nineteen.” As if to prove it, Gaga confesses,
“I’m a complete free spirit, so, even though you don’t see it, I still find time to have sex at night on the beach when no one’s around.
Or roll into a bar and get f***ed up and dance with my top off. It’s just that no one ever sees that, because I have great real friends who never let me do it when I would get caught.”
The September issue of Vogue hits newsstands on August 14.
