It's been featured in US Vogue before, click here, I don't think he had ever made it to a cover though.

I'm probably going to get torched here but I don't see what's so spectacular about his work.. sometimes he captures a bit of that Antwerpian romanticism.. but somehow it always looks as phony as Viktor & Rolf to me.. To each their own anyway, it is much better than seeing J. Mendel mediocrity, and he's supported by a lot of great people.

Gaga sells. She especially gets - people who generally wouldn't buy vogue us - interested.

1. Massive memory lapse: Does the March issue generally have a couture editorial? Why don't I remember this? Someone please enlighten me.

2. I think it's a little peculiar that some people are surprised by the choice of Ackermann, as if it's a huge step for Vogue. His collection was one of the best out of hundreds of Spring shows- the fashion flock were drooling all over the place. Plus, he had been building up his work with a few solid, noteworthy collections... I think he deserves loads of praise and attention now.

Ah, I love it So different from the usual US Vogue fair... switch up the lighting a bit and it could even pass for a European Vogue cover. Doesn't hurt that two of my favorite artists (Gaga, Ackerman) are featured.

PREACH.

For better or for worse, model covers do not sell. Until everyone that hates celebrity covers stops buying Vogue, or on the rare occasion that there is a model cover, goes out and buys a thousand copies... things aren't gonna change.

But seems like subscriber's didn't receive it yet, how can they scan it? I think Gaga's fans are more dedicated than Stewart's.

The blurry cover pic looks promising. Something different & interesting from US Vogue & Gaga is certainly a more fruitful fashion subject than others the mag has featured in the past. Yes, yes, these days US Vogue eclipses Vogue Paris in cover + content.

I'm just saying it because that cover was posted much earlier in HQ than what we normally see. I was just being facetious.
