Scoring the cover of Vogue’s September issue is like winning a gold medal in the fashion Olympics. It’s the issue Anna Wintour and her minions work tirelessly on all year long. Just watch the awesome 2009 documentary titled “The September Issue” to see what is entailed to bring the issue together. This year they must’ve worked even harder since the 2012 issue is a total of 946 pages, -the largest ever for the publication. The 26-year-old singer unveiled the cover on her new social network littlemonsters.com, posting:
“SHH DONT TELL TWITTER/ SEPT ISSUE OF VOGUE MAGAZINE/ Sorry Anna but the underground kids deserve it. bisous!”
Who better to grace the cover of the extra-large issue than larger-than-life pop icon Lady Gaga? This marks the second time she’s landed the cover. The first time occurred in March 2011. With a new album, “ARTPOP“, to promote, Gaga must’ve been elated to score the essential Fall fashion bible for fashionistas everywhere. In the issue, Gaga talks about having sex on beaches, her world tour, launching her perfume, fashion risks and her music.
“I don’t really make records for people to listen to and go, ‘Wow, she’s a genius’. I’d really like you to order a drink, maybe kiss the person you came with that evening or rediscover something about your past that makes you feel even more brave.” – Lady Gaga
