Of Inspiration, Lady GaGa does V Magazine

It is no secret that I absolutely ADORE Lady GaGa. From makeup to music, this songstress and pop icon can do no wrong in my eyes. Now, imagine how excited I was to hear that GaGa would be doing a cover for V Magazine's Issue 61. Shot by Mario Testino, this spread is a feast for the eyes.

LADY GAGA was photographed by MARIO TESTINO in NYC and wears Marc Jacobs styled by Nicola Formichetti. The magazine is available on newsstands as of yesterday, Sept 1st. It will come in 2 different versions with GAGA “wearing” removable electrostatic blue and pink Marc Jacobs glasses.

In regards to his inspiration for the cover shot, Editor-in-chief Stephen Gan says: "When the Marc Jacobs pink hooded coat and glasses came down the runway, I knew there was only one person I wanted to see in it: Lady Gaga. Growing up as a kid obsessed with new wave, I would cut up paper sunglasses and put them on to celebs’ faces on magazine covers. These plastic peel on and peel off glasses come in pink and blue and are actually based on the Marc Jacobs ones that came down the runway! There's no other celeb that has done more for the eyewear biz than Gaga. Giving people something tactile and collectible...I feel like a kid again peeling those glasses on and off the V cover."

As if that cover isn't enough to bring your pop-happy levels up through the roof, have a look at this gem:
GAGA has me going bananas. For more photos, and to read the interview, pick up your issue of V Magazine at a local newstand near you.
