TOGETHER AGAIN

"For this issue I wanted nothing more than one story, just one, that my children and the future of fashion would remember forever."


Lady Gaga has return to V Magazine stronger than ever, not only as a cover star but as a guest editor as well.

What else is there to say about newly titled columnist?

Gaga edited the Spring 2016 issue of V Magazine adding the faces of designer/photographer combination, Karl Lagerfeld and Hedi Slimane, giving them the cover. In fact, they shot each other's photos for the magazine. Iconic English editor, model, and credibly founder of the exemplary Lee Alexander McQueen, Isabella Blow, was placed as 6th out of the 16 covers. Mr. McQueen was another featured cover star, a photograph from 2002 was used.

For the first cover Gaga wore a black satin dress with a high collar, embellished with silver eagle claws, adding a unique edge. For the second cover featuring the beautiful, Daphne Guinness, Gaga was lended the same glove that is worn during the thriller anthology, American Horror Story. 

Most of us are probably thinking it right now: please become a full-time editor, Ms. Germanotta. She has featured more people that are actually in fashion in one seasonal magazine issue.

She is really giving us, fashion enthusiasts, what we want, which is fashion. Many magazines tend to forget about the people in fashion and instead stick with celebrity culture for the majority of their content. One of my favorite things that she did was the fact that stick with a majority of photography, only adding one major story. She said, "For this issue I wanted nothing more than one story, just one, that my children and the future of fashion would remember forever."

This week V Magazine has been releasing a few covers at a time, not all the covers have been released, they said that they'd be releasing them in the next couple of weeks, before they hit newsstands on January 14. You can pre-order yours on their online shop. I was able to get one of the covers before they completely sold out (they were selling out in less than 6 hours!), I purchased the cover that featured Daphne Guinness (left) and I'm anxiously awaiting for the confirmation email of the shipment of the magazine.
