PHOTO GALLERY: Lady GaGa in Vogue Magazine
Lady GaGa goes from gothic bondage to femme-fatale fairy tale in the December 2009 issue of Vogue magazine. After appearing in the British, French and Japanese editions, GaGa has finally snagged an editorial in the American edition and she’s not holding back. Looks like Anna Wintour hasn’t lost her edge.
The spread puts a fierce, haute couture spin on the childhood fable Hansel and Gretel. Delicate pale ruffles, dangerously dark lips and sky-high heels are incorporated in the feature, and hit every trend of the season. Additionally, Annie Leibovitz’s brilliant photography captured a kitschy twist on the image of Lady GaGa, utilizing kitchen utensils to ever-so-fashionably dominate Hansel. Not to mention, burning in a fiery oven has never looked so good. GaGa was even able to stick to her strict “no pants” policy.
Both Lady GaGa and Vogue seem to have stepped out of their element here. Perhaps just in time for the November 23 release of Gaga’s new album, The Fame Monster.
Not to say Vogue isn’t reaping the benefits of this twisted, yet bold, statement as well.
