Pop titan Lady Gaga continues her image renaissance ahead of her hotly anticipated comeback.
The ‘Bad Romance’ belter appears on the double cover of CR Fashion Book‘s latest issue – sans any retouching.
Speaking on the Gaga’s selection, the publication’s creator Carine Roitfeld explained:
“Lady Gaga perfectly represents what I mean by the classic eccentric to me. She is completely Gaga, but she is also a lady. In her music and art, she is so creative, always pushing the envelope . . . And yet she is classically trained, as well. As we saw with the jazz music, she can be both the modern pop star and still play the classic songs, giving them a modern twist. That is always what I love.”
She elaborated on the singer’s appearance as a bride on the covers:
“I decided to style her in that way for two reasons: The obvious one, of course, is that she is getting married soon, but also it represents how in this new era in her career, how she has come to marry these different sides of herself—how she has become free.”
Gaga herself chimed in about being musically liberated – thanks largely to ‘Cheek to Cheek,’ her Grammy winning Jazz album with Tony Bennett.
