Vogue has officially delivered on the cover rumor that generated the buzz that made the September issue one of the most anticipated of the year: After the jump, see the lady in all her Gaga glory.
Gaga posted the photos on her website, Little Monsters, which is fitting since her hair looks like a Troll Doll mated with a Wild Thing. But that fuchsia Marc Jacobs stunner is very Vogue—more about fashion than celebrity, in a good way. All told, the Grace Coddington-styled and Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott-lensed cover is little bit elegant, a little bit weird, and completely Gaga. After the jump, see the whole thing plus a sneak peak at what's inside the mag.
