For Vogue, Lady Gaga is twice as nice.
According to WWD, Mother Monster is set to land her second Vogue cover, this time for the all-important September issue. Our sources confirm that it does indeed look like Gaga is good for the cover, and that this will be a wide shot, the better to show off that toned bod, and purple (a big color for fall) features prominently. Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott reportedly photographed the cover and accompanying editorial.
Despite Gaga’s tendency towards wardrobe malfunctions and platform-induced tumbles, the pop star is actually a pretty safe choice for Vogue. Gaga’s March 2011 cover was the second best-selling issue of Vogue last year, so the fashion bible is undoubtedly hoping for a repeat performance. Last year’s September issue featured another old heavy-hitting Vogue fave, Kate Moss.
The cover makes sense for camp Gaga, too. She’s set to release her first fragrance–you know, the one that will have undertones of blood and semen–this fall. And even if Gaga hasn’t been making headlines lately she still has over 25 million followers on Twitter–surely some of them will pick up her issue on newsstands.
What do you think of Vogue’s September choice?
