I have been waiting for this! V Magazine‘s cover for issue #71 was going to be a gamechanger as soon as they announced that the edition would be wholly asian-themed. Lady Gaga is only appropriate, isn’t she? While the world watches her every movie, this double-covered take on Madame Butterfly and asian thematics will make the uninformed media sit up and pay attention.
After being the cover model for their past two September issues (the most important issue of the year for any publication), the photographs – shot by Inez Van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin – feel eternally resonant. Of course, the styling was done by her Super Stylist Sidekick Nicola Formichetti.
