FIRST LOOK: Lady Gaga’s VOGUE Magazine 120th Anniversary Cover
Lady Gaga is almost unrecognizable in a purple Marc Jacobs gown on the September 2012 cover of VOGUE Magazine’s 120th Anniversary issue, shot by Mert Alas & Marcus Piggott and styled by Grace Coddington.
Inside, the singer poses nude wearing only an oversized Steven Jones hat and dishes about her new fragrance and music.
On her new fragrance: “The fragrance is called ‘Fame.’ It must be black. It must be enticing. You must want to lick and touch and feel it, but the look of it must terrify you.”
On her ‘Born This Way Ball’ world tour: “I really wanted to break the mold of what modern touring is now.”
On wearing the meat dress on tour: “We were talking about putting the show together and I said, OK, what if I was someone’s grandma and I was going to a concert tonight. How would I know that it was a Gaga show? And we all just sort of looked at each other and said,‘The meat dress.’”
On her music: “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.”
The issue, Vogue’s largest ever with 946 pages, hits newsstands on August 14.
