i can't remember who said the cover reminds of early karen elson, but i totally agree. i don't care about gaga the person/the character and i generally find her interviews quite unisteresting, but i do like many of her songs and i think it's a very good picture. not to mention she does have some relevance and it totally makes sense to link her to fashion.
great to see a haider ackermann dress on the cover by the way.

I feel like Gaga is absolutely relevant to fashion and considering many of the starlets who make the cover of Vogue US, it would almost be a dis or not make sense to NOT put Gaga on the cover. As I see it, she's helping top make thousands if not millions of people more aware of the couture aspect of fashion. Lady Gaga is as synonymous with fashion as she is with catchy music to many of her fans (myself included). I love the cover. I love that her pose is so straightforward. She's standing straight and tall and it looks like it belongs on an issue dubbed "The Power Issue". The best part of the cover, though, for me, is the colors used. Absolutely lovely shades and very appropriate to spring (contrast that with Vogue UK's March cover this year). Admittedly, the Alejandro look is not my favorite of hers, but I think she's owning it on the cover. I can't wait to see the inside photos. I hope there are many.

So yeah, I like the cover and I think the cover star is the most relevant-to-the-fashion-world cover star Vogue US has had since last Spring.

Putting all the relevance discussions aside, it's really one of her worst looks to make it a cover one.

You just have to dress as eccentrically as possible and you're one of the crowd.

I completely agree!

To me it doesn't matter if it's Gaga or if it's good for US Vogue, cover itself looks awful.

I don't know about the cover... seems very like they tried to "fit" her in to the vogue aesthetic. the outfit seems to large for her too? no? and the pink wig? c'mon guys,...

I would, if I must, see her in a very natural outfit, maybe with cher's "turn back time"-hair?

i actually don't understand how lady gaga on the cover shows that us vogue is stepping up. lady gaga is talked about way too much and is overrated. she's just as bad as Kesha. I'm not surprised vogue chose her. but at least the colors on the cover are nice
