This cover is a piece of garbage, definitely one of the worst magazine covers ever...

Can't believe than Grace styled Gaga, a such of waste of her work.

Hope the eds will be good.

Praying for good contents.
The first thing that came to my mind was RuPaul

i dont think its just because of gaga that this doesnt look good, well at least for me, i think that the whole thing, the concept, the styling, the execution is bad. I like just few things, like the dress or gaga's eyes and that this is different from what we have seen recently, they took a risk, did it work? not really good

Looks like the american magazines are competing for the most garish pink cover this month. Think pink indeed.

Good One!
The self deprecating humor is winning me over!

Gaga is sooo 2009. What is she promoting now?

At first glance it looks like UK Vogue. It's certainly a departure for US Vogue but that's not always a good thing.

I'm more concerned about the content.

The red banner is so cheap and unnecessary, but I LOVE the cover image. It pays homage to the classic fashion sketch while still being a real photograph. Plus...916 pages?! And I thought the Sept 07 issue was huge. This one's gonna break my bookshelf...XD

My gut instinct is that she'll be dropping her new single anytime soon for her 2013 album release, along with the debut of her new fragrance launch (typically VOGUE US seeks to it that they use every bit of her, since she is the ideal cover model to sell instantly on newstands everywhere).

My first response like some of the people is that she does look like RuPaul, I don't dislike anything about the cover image but at the same time i've seen better, it's a good quality photo for a record breaking 917 page September issue.

Well this Gaga isn't the biggest Gaga! Remember Elle Indonesia April 2012 with more than 1,000 pages.

Love or hate the cover but surely this issue warrants a purchase because of it being their biggest issue ever. I'll probably be picking up three copies exactly as I did with last years September issue. One for reading, ripping apart and to work the biceps ha. Another for future reference and one for a rainy day.

With the sell rates of Gaga's last issue and the $1.00 increase in cost, the issue will be wildly successful. Brilliant move in my opinion.

^I love, LOVE the cover picture, but hate the cover. the text placement, the red banner. Also, even though I said I love the cover picture, I hate how much its photoshopped. Other than that, the dress, the big hair, and THE gaga are fabulous :p
