Lady Gaga has taken over V magazine, debuting her very own fashion column for the magazine and multiplying her avant garde mug for the cover.
Shot here by legendary fashion photographer duo Inez and Vinoodh for V Asia, Gaga is making all the right connections in the fashion industry and has booked a gig as a regular contributor with the US version of the popular publication. The pop superstar has already displayed her love of fashion in her music videos and on the red carpet, and now the style star has put her impressive fashion knowledge on paper.
In her editorial debut for V's May issue Gaga opens "Glam culture is ultimately rooted in obsession, and those of us who are truly devoted and loyal to the lifestyle of glamor are masters of its history. Or, to put it more elegantly, we are librarians."
The expert continues, "I myself can look at almost any hemline, silhouette, beadwork or heel architecture and tell you very precisely who designed it after them, and what cultural and musical movement parented the birth, death and resurrection of that particular trend."
Gaga goes on to reveal that her Lower East Side studio apartment is a hotbed of fashion inspiration and calls her Haus of Gaga creative team a "living Warholian factory." She drops her knowledge from the school of glam history as she references modern painter Piet Mondrian, legendary fashion house Yves Saint Laurent and her 'Born This Way' music video all in one graph, which represents the theme of the column itself — the fusion of art, fashion and music into one seamless fabric of creative energy.
