Above, the incomparable Lady Gaga poses atop her recent Visionaire Larger Than Life cover by Inez & Vinoodh for the cover of Spanish V’s Winter 2011/12 issue!
In a special bilingual edition (Spanish and English), Spanish V looks back at twenty years of Visionaire, showcasing each individual issue with new interviews from the collaborators who made them come to life. The issue also celebrates V Magazine’s greatest moments from the past ten years, including never-before-seen images from Lady Gaga’s first shoot for V with Sebastian Faena, at which she and her close collaborator Nicola Formichetti first met. Other highlights include early work from contributors and icons such as David Bowie, Mario Testino, Karl Lagerfeld, Carine Roitfeld, and Inez & Vinoodh.
As Spanish V looks back at all of the incredible contributors who have shaped V and Visionaire over the years, we nominate Lady Gaga as the ultimate “visionary,” and celebrate the icon by featuring her on the cover. See how she embodies the spirit of V and Visionaire in this glimpse into our history. Here is to the next twenty years!
