Lady Gaga looks like an angelic drag queen on September’s Vanity Fair UK


Don’t kill me, people, but I love love LOVE Lady Gaga’s Vanity Fair UK cover. This wig is awesome! And she looks so… pretty. Is it ‘Shopped? Of course. But it’s still lovely, and I like Gaga with longer hair and this kind of ethereal styling. She looks like an angelic drag queen. And she would probably take that as a compliment.

I believe Gaga is going to be on the American cover of the Septemeber Vanity Fair too. No idea if VF will be using the same shot for the cover – I hope not. I want to see more from this Nick Knight photo shoot.

Also: according to many sources, Gaga is back with her ex, a dude named Luc. He just dumped his girlfriend to get back with Gaga:

Lady Gaga is officially back on with the ex that helped her become famous. Gaga and Luc Carl are giving their relationship another try after he dumped his girlfriend to get back together with Gaga.

New York based barman Luc has been close to Gaga for four years, and they reportedly rekindled their romance while she was in NYC last month.

A friend of Gaga’s said: “Luc was like the cat that got the cream. He had the most famous woman in the world vying for his attention and a hot young blonde waiting in the wings. It could have ended really badly, but the other girl melted into the background. She knows what Luc’s like – he has women all over the place… Gaga has convinced herself that this time she’s got Luc back for good. She says it’s serious and that, after a few false starts, she thinks they are back on for good.”

Gaga had a very nasty break-up the last time they were back on, so hopefully there won’t be any drama this time around. She could definitely use a social life–all she does is work work work!

Aw… that sounds kind of… sweet. Will this be a new era in Gaga’s transformation? She’s now ethereal, and getting laid. Take notes!

    Far from looking angelic.

  2. lola lola says:

    Kaiser, you are so right. She looks like she stepped of RuPaul’s Drag Race. Not a pretty woman but she can write a great hook then sing the hell out of it.

  3. truthSF says:

    Fuck me, is that Madonna in the first pic?

  4. Jackie says:

    I am sorry Kaiser, but I just cant with this one.

    I am really sick of her.

    At first I thought she was edgy and new and kinda cool, but now I just feel like she is desperate for attention, and her “art” is more for acceptance, than originality.

  5. Allie says:

    she looks beautiful!

  6. Solveig says:

    I usually think that she is pretty especially because she’s totally different from the whole bimbo kind of singers (Kylie Minogue, Hillary Duff, etc) and because I love interesting faces, so I really appreciate this cover and that wig and makeup in general.

  7. ligeia says:

    she looks almost innocent on cover shot. definitely sweet.

  8. LOVE ANGELINA says:

    I don’t see drag really, maybe in the lashes. I mean if the eyelashes had been done properly she would have just looked like an angelic stunning woman, like she is. LOL I love it. Something so sooo swinging 60s about it with the hair and the peace sign.

    I have never seen vanity Fair, or any high fashion mag, use the same cover for their international issues. I am sure they will use different photos. It will be the epitome of tacky if they don’t have different pics.

  9. Oi says:

    Sorry, I thought she looked like a corpse. Like the butcher’s dead wife in Fiddler on the Roof.

  10. K-MAC says:

    I agree! she looks FABULOUSLY darling….she reminds me of a mix of the 1970s, studio 54 days, and lady Godiva!!!!

    Like she was the imagine created from the Eagles song WITCHY WOMAN (I know, I know, she doesn’t have raven hair or ruby lips, but I think you get what I am saying).

  11. danielle says:

    Love her! Seen pics of the guy – he has womena hanging all over him?!?!? She should have some hot boy toy who worships her.

  12. Sarah says:

    I wouldn’t go as far to say she looks beautiful but she looks better than I’ve ever seen her.

  13. ViktoryGin says:

    She looks like an ageing swinger circa 1969.

  14. RHONYC says:


    let ’em break up tragically again.

    hence, the following of great video imagery.

    men’s skeletons burning in beds.

    men being poisoned. men dy…

    okay, i’m obsessed.

    I LUVA GAGA!!!

  16. original kate says:

    i see someone’s channeling madonna again.

  17. LolaBella says:

    She looks gorgeous on the cover…too bad it doesn’t look a thing like how she actually looks in real life! WTH, Vanity Fair?

    That Photochop is a powerful tool; it has the power to make Lady GaGa ( I love her, but let’s be honest she’s no angelic beauty) look like a cross between Alicia Keys and Lindsay Lohan! Really? Really?

    *Listens to Bad Romance on Ipod*

  18. Jover says:

    Second that Jackie I’m sick of her and she looks nothing in real life like that photoshop; Like most pop tarts she co-writes her songs – google her cd discography; she’s not avante-garde or original borrowing/copying from Madonna, Elton John, Grace Jones, Cher, English glam rockers, Kiss, etc. as most posters have pointed out – and yes she’s become an attention whore all the talk is of her public appearances, not her “music” which even by today’s pop standards, is empty and useless.

  19. CH says:

    wait a minute
    is she back with the guy that said was responsible of her success and wanted his money from her?
    is he a woma woma womanizer?
    i dont like this story!

  20. voodoobetty says:

    I really think Gaga is unconventionally beautiful. Forgive my lack of shallowness but I don’t think one has to have perfect symmetrical features to be beautiful. She also has an incredible body. Love her.

  21. vivienne says:

    “At first I thought she was edgy and new and kinda cool, but now I just feel like she is desperate for attention, and her “art” is more for acceptance, than originality.”

    you managed to vocalise what i couldnt-that exactly my problem with her!

  22. serena says:

    Yeah I like her too with long hair and ethereal look. She looks fabulous, but still the below photos she’s in are ugly.

  23. kelbear says:

    Honestly. They photoshopped the hell out of that cover. Doesn’t look anything like the big nose she usually has.

  24. snowball says:

    WTF is with the constant “drag queen” crap? Is it because of her nose? Does a big nose make you look like a man? ‘Shopped or not, the cover is very pretty. I like that she adopts all kinds of different looks. From what I’ve heard of some different songs so far, the next album she’s doing is a lot different from the first one, so maybe the less costumey thing is where she’s going.

    So she decided many years ago not to conform to peer pressure and screw with her face. You’d think that would be applauded when everyone rags on everyone else (Jessica Biel and Megan Fox anyone?) for tweaking their noses.

    Those last two pics are from her Today Show set where she performed three songs in the driving rain in heels, dancing, to the largest audience the show had ever had. You can’t say she doesn’t work it for her fans.

  25. TQB says:

    Anyone who questions her talent ought to go watch the Today Show footage those last two pics are from. Killer show, in the rain, at 7am.

    I’m with @snowball, why does a big nose = drag queen?

  26. juiceinla says:

    I am so sick of her, I am even sick of reminding everyone she is a derivative uninspired brat…

    But in my defense, she stole Kelly Osborne’s hair color. Sure its a cool look, but for crissakes can’t this woman do ANYTHING original?

  27. Cam says:

    I think she’s amazing, and I’m very happy for her (: hope this time works out!.

    I agree with @snowball and @TQB, stop with the “drag queen” crap.

  28. Delta Juliet says:

    My understanding of the “drag queen” comments is more because of the over-the-top costumes, make-up and wigs. I never thought it had anything to do with her nose.

  29. MaiGirl says:

    I think that the drag queen stuff also has to do with the fact that Gaga often looks kind of hard in the face with the heavy, dramatic makeup she wears with her various costumes. Her features, not just her nose, are very prominent, so dramatic makeup (white white foundation, red red lips, thick black eyeliner and long false eyelashes) only makes them look harsh, kind of like when older ladies layer on the slap to try to look younger but just look even older instead. That’s what makes her look drag queen-y sometimes, in my opinion.This is the first time I have seen her with subtler makeup, and it really softens her face and brings our her prettiness. I would have to say that this is the first time that I have *not* agreed that she looks draggy.

  30. Stephy2485 says:

    She looks stunning.
    It’s very hippy-dippy-trippy with the long hair and peace sign, indeed.
    I like it.

    I think she’s sexy as hell but definitely not a conventional beauty…Which is probably a good thing as conventional beauty generally translates to pop-star-bimbo and that’s tired…

    She looks tres adorable in her vid for “Eh, Eh (Nothing Else I Can Say)”

  31. Nessie says:

    On the cover she looks like Lilo and in the other pictures like Madonna back in 1989. She looks like she has drained herself and is no longer original.

  32. Kitten says:

    2nd Snowball. Besides, I’d much rather be cool and unique than pretty.
    Alas, I am all three. Just kidding!!!!!! 🙂

  33. DetRiotgirl says:

    As I’ve posted over and over again here, I am sick of this pretentious pop star. However, in the spirit of saying something nice, I will say that these pictures are among the best I’ve ever seen her look. I dislike her less when she’s not trying to be a walking Picasso.

    However, I have to add that she looks just like Madonna in both shots. That cover is a dead ringer for the look Madonna did for the Bedtime stories video, and the bottom pics are very “who’s that girl?” era. So, I’m not seeing anything new here.

  34. a says:

    i think she looks great and fun.

  35. Liana says:

    She looks OK on the cover, but she looked GORGEOUS in parts of the “Bad Romance” video. She just doesn’t do it for me. Her music is OK, I like a couple songs, but I wouldn’t go out of my way to see her perform – not like I would for Imogen Heap!

  36. Dhavy says:

    I still think she’s trying to outdo Madonna in the outrageous, reinventing thing but it’s more like copying not original at all. Big platform shoes, strange make up and color wigs is not original, it’s just…weird and kind of repetitive.

    Yes, she is different than all the fake, half dressed, ass out, so called singers that are out there but not original

    I would rather see what Rihanna is wearing than the clown like outfits she wears

  37. ak47 says:

    She looks great! There’s a Madonna vibe.

  38. mojoman says:

    I agree 100% with you Jackie (poster #4). Everything she does now is just an overkill

  39. malachais says:

    There’s a Luc Carl from Brooklyn on Myspace, mullet and all:

    EHH, Why is it that all female pop/r&b singers have horrible ass taste in men? jesus

  40. Shay says:

    I kind of think she is -in these photos- copying Madonna a little.

  41. DetRiotgirl says:

    Omg @malachais is that the dude she’s dating? Wow, I just got douche chills so hard I almost had to scrub my iPhone down to make it stop! Ugh and ew on every level!

    You know, I have a hard time picturing Lady Gaga in a relationship. She never struck me as being all that interested in men. She never struck me as being interested in women either, for that matter. She strikes me as someone who is so in love with herself that no one else registers the same way. Perhaps I was wrong though.

    I don’t care for her. But, I hope she’s not dating the douche-tastic Russell Brand wannabe in that picture. I know it’s wrong to make snap judgments. But, seriously, a picture says a thousand words. And his picture is like a ten chapter tome entitled “how to be an obnoxious jerk in NYC for dummies”. Enough said.

  42. Liana says:

    @malachais: Dang, nothing screams “douche” harder than a man in spandex pants.

  43. Lenore says:

    So, wait – the guy who broke her heart and made her feel like crap suddenly decides he wants his now-famous, now-loaded, now-superstar ex-girlfriend back, and that’s suppoed to be sweet?

    Sorry, no way. I can’t blame her for taking him back – if you love someone, you love them, opportunistic douchebag and all. But if a guy waits til you’re a millionaire to realise what he was missing, that guy is a dick.

  44. Sans says:

    Amazing cover. If you’ve seen the Bad Romance video she looks real good with light make-up.

  45. Jag says:

    See, to me, it looks like she’s doing a parody of Lindsay Lohan. The straight blonde hair, doing the peace sign, naked with jewels, high look, etc..

    She still looks good, but either she did this on purpose, or the photographer/stylist did, imo.

  46. gg says:

    She wore lilac wigs way before Kelly Osbourne ever died her hair that color.
