Lady Gaga peers proudly from the cover of Vogue's massive September… (Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott…)
Lady Gaga is a musician first but voracious fashion fan second. What a moment, then, to see her staring out from the cover of the September issue of Vogue magazine.
The year's most anticipated, thanks to its comprehensive fall fashion spread, and often largest (her issue's page count is a record-breaking 916) sees Gaga shot by photography team Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott.
And that double take you just did? The Lady sees the resemblance too, to another fashion iconoclast: RuPaul.
"Who else sees me channeling @RuPaul on the COVER of VOGUE. If only I was as fierce as you," Gaga tweeted. "I did try to come for you with that weave."
Indeed Gaga seems to have the same dress proportions and hair dimensions seen often from the host of "RuPaul's Drag Race" and isn't ashamed to admit it.
Other revealing things from her Vogue cover story: Despite a hectic touring schedule, she still finds the time for some good ol' fashioned love in the sand.
"I still find time to have sex at night on the beach when no one’s around. Or roll into a bar ... and dance with my top off. It’s just that no one ever sees that," Gaga told Vogue, as repeated by Access Hollywood.
Talk also turned to her skinny-dipping partner, boyfriend Taylor Kinney. Can we expect little monsters of her own anytime soon?
“[I’m not looking to] settle down and live in a house yet or anything. I just want to keep riding this rainbow," she said.
