It's not bad. She's usually annoying and obnoxious but not so here. It's a nice Vogue cover. I'm sure it will sell like hotcakes.

I'm thrilled for Haider Ackermann to land this cover. So often stunning collections by designers such as Ackermann can fall under the radar and do not get the credit they deserve. But to see my favourite collection of S/S 11 on the cover of US Vogue, as worn by Gaga - I can't imagine the opportunities this will create for Ackermann.

Such a refreshing choice for the cover of US Vogue.

LOVE.
IT.


GaGa. wow. i mean, say what you want -- love her or hate her. it doesn't matter. she has gone from relative obscurity to literal omnipresence in 18 months. and not just "fame" by a name. but with MILLIONS of rabid fans, in every corner of our planet. she has become a sort of instant icon. it's an incredibly rare thing. in the past 30 years, really think about it. who has been an INSTANT ICON in popular music? Michael Jackson. Madonna. Whitney Houston. Britney Spears. Beyonce. Lady GaGa. that's really it. and, at this moment, she genuinely is as huge as any of those artists were when they first exploded. and she has a relationship with her fans that is so intense and so connected and so influential, it's very unique to her. this magazine will definitely sell. sell. sell.

In the Cover Rumor Thread, I was hoping for something stripped down and natural. Yet they've done the opposite and I like it. It's certainty different for US Vogue, the pink hair and all. I applaud them for attempting it and pulling it off.

definitely a strong and bold cover, i love the pink hair and the Ackermann dress, hope she will have a long feature and article.
they started very good this year, i mean january and february were amazing, from articles to editorials.
can't wait to see the eds, usually march is filled with great ones.

If the internet had existed for the past thirty years, we might have seen a multitude of instant icons made on a similar basis to Gaga - so much so, that we might have been tired of it by 1982. Never mind world oil reserves, can you imagine running out of fashion ideas to constantly recycle that early in our evolution?

Why is this woman just so magnetic? It's hard to dislike anything that she's involved in. I really like her music and I do think people should give her a chance. I agree with happycanadian-it's actually exciting to see someone be able to actually still accumulate this type of success in our heyday, even if you aren't in her favor.

Her face bothers me, and the wig makes it all look even worse. It's not so bad though.:p

1) YES YES YES!!!! Vogue is on the ball and doing it better than ever! Kristen's issue was insanely refreshing and inspiring (perfection to say the least) so I CANNOT wait for the contents. Oooh this issue is going sell like MAD. Advertisers will be over the moon lol.
2) The ones who are saying Vogue is elitest are right and wrong. Right because it's above all a 'high fashion magazine' and wrong, simply because of its circulation and readership figures (hello, 1.2 million compared to VP's 210,000. which is normal due to the size of their respective country).
3) The last cover with models was May 2009 I believe? and before that wasn't Natalia's July 2007 one??

Somehow I feel as refreshed as the this cover is refreshing. Of course, there'll be so many people hate it but it always happen. People have opinions and favorites and affections. This cover really gives Vogue US a stand as it's a mainstream media and I think this will boost the sale of the magazine. Plus the choice of styling as, well, amazing!
