You’ll Never Guess Who Guest-Edited V Mag
Drumroll… She's a bonafide popstar with one of the largest personal collections of Alexander McQueen armadillo boots. Got it now?
Lady Gaga has broken a new record at V Magazine in releasing an impressive range of 16 alternative covers for V99, featuring her ‘fashion guard’: a series of style influencers who have inspired the artist. From Hedi Slimane to Karl Lagerfeld, Isabella Blow and, notably, the Golden Globe–nominated actress’s favourite designer, the late Alexander McQueen. For a cool £200 you can purchase all 16 covers in a deluxe limited edition case; that'll no doubt become a rare collectors item for fashion aficionados in years to come (if you can keep it pristine and off of your coffee table, that is).
The Telegraph exclusively revealed that the photography of Alexander McQueen and Isabella Blow is previously unseen and was shot by legendary artist Steven Klein. In her editor’s letter, Lady Gaga shares, "My coverhumans [sic] share something profound in common that I have observed in myself since I was a young child. It's an ability through our innate sadness as creatives to find a glimmer of fantasy and hope through our art."
V Magazine's Spring/Summer Preview issue is out on 14 January.
