You can say whatever you want from her but she gives a lot to work in on a photoshoot. Just look at the video...I cant believe Mert & Marcus photoshoped her so much because the end result could be very good.
It may look better in print through

I loved the color of the banner when it was on the video but when it was on the cover, it looked like it was an auto shape from Powerpoint. The cover shoot looks really fun!

Brilliant, seriously?....this strategy is so obvious that in my opnion canīt be discribe as brilliant!

I am willing to see what kind of rubbish they have put in this issue to arrive the number of 916 pages...

I agree with Chrissy M's write up in "Forum Buzz" - the cover is a departure, different-looking, which is good. I also agree with others that the red banner is "off" - KingofVersailles, I think the idea of an anniversary banner is a good one, but the execution here doesn't work. It kind of clashes with the rest of the cover, which is more edgy, whereas the banner is a traditional accoutrement. Finally, like Chrissy, I will not read the accompanying article because Lady Gaga doesn't interest me. I still feel like she wasn't a great choice for the cover, but at least they've styled and photographed her in an interesting way.

BTW, I don't recall that MJ dress in the collection? There were the lovely (I thought) patchwork black silk dresses at the end of the collection but no patchwork fuchsia gowns. This must be custom made for the person/occasion then.

Review September 2012: Lady Gaga by Mert & Marcus

El Dorado (16p)
Photographer: Mario Testino
Model: Stella Tennant
Fashion Editor: Camilla Nickerson
Description: Shot in Peru, involves a lot of the native people. Bold vivid colors and Stella is just so wonderful. Great styling as well.

Art And Craft
(8p)
Photographer: David Sims
Models: Liu Wen, Caroline Trentini, Joan Smalls
Fashion Editor: Tonne Goodman
Description: Clean crisp lines, showcasing mostly coats. Slightly matted wet hair. Liu Wen probably looks the best here. Liu gets 4 pages, while Caroline and Joan each gets 2 pages.

Space Odyssey (14p)
Photographer: Steven Klein
Model: Karen Elson
Fashion Editor: Tonne Goodman
Description: Very sci-fi. Very saturated photographs showing mostly black clothes. Make-up is a bit harsh, therefore, works for some photos and downright scary for others. Looks like its shot in an airbase.

Dream Girl (8p)
Photographer: Mert Alas & Marcus Piggott
Model: Lady Gaga
Fashion Editor: Grace Coddington

The Custom Of The Country (18p)
Photographer: Annie Leibovitz
Model: Natalia Vodianova with Juno Temple, Mamie Gummer, Elijah Woods and etc.
Fashion Editor: Grace Coddington
Description: Natalia plays the role of Edith Warton, author of the book The Custom of the Country, hence the name of the editorial. Shot on location at The Mount, where Wharton actually lived. So, the actors/artists/whoever appearing alongside Natalia are all cameos from Wharton's real life. Beautiful Victorian-esque gowns.

One Enchanted Evening (6p)
Photographer: Peter Lindbergh
Models: Aymeline Valade, Bette Franke, Elza Luijendjik, Zuzana Bijoch
Fashion Editor: Grace Coddington
Description: Highlighting Dolce&Gabbana's first couture collection. Shot in a garden. 4 pages of photos of all the girls together. Girls twirling around. 2 pages of interview plus a close-up of Bette looking beautiful.

Punk'd (1p)
Photographer: Tim Walker
Model: Xiao Wen Ju
Fashion Editor: Phyllis Posnick
Description: Xiao Wen wearing Lanvin with blonde-yellowish hair looking like a doll with ghostly white make-up.

Her Brilliant Career (8p)
Photographer: David Sims
Model: Karlie Kloss
Fashion Editor: Grace Coddington
Description: Karlie with long straight hair of varying neon colors for each shot. She works it actually. Shot in a business district with Karlie walking/rushing shots.

Highlights

The Models (10p)
Description: A sort of tributes to models, featuring shots used previously in the magazine.

I expected more from the review to be honest, but sounds decent.

I cant believe there isnt a single Meisel editorial when we have two with Sims.
Anyway this is a great issue, great editorial content and great (and diversed) cast.

Well that sounds like a fantastic diverse content, despite there not being Meisel whose omission from the issue makes no sense, but i am still excited to have ti in my hands!

Thanks for the review Ash92
