Ok, let me get this off my chest straight away. I’m not the biggest Lady Gaga fan. I respect how far she has come in such a short space of time, and love how she pushes the boundaries of fashion but other than that I’m not overly bothered by her or her antics. Even so, I couldn’t escape the huge buzz about her Vanity Fair cover for the September issue. Fully expecting some outlandish clothes and props, I was pleasantly surprised to see quite a simple, understated cover.
Here’s the behind the scenes video, which is amazing! Better than the cover shot, in my opinion. Gaga is just beautifully captivating and the styling is out of this world, it’s such a pity she ended up being naked with a grey wig on. I only say that because there could have been a really gorgeous, ethereal shot as the cover. But I do like the understated shot they chose. It strips away the mental-ness normally associated with her.
