Lady Gaga in Elle UK January
I'm a bit late on this but when I saw this cover on the newsstand yesterday, I can't help but buy the magazine. I would say that this particular dress is the most recognisable and memorable piece from Alexander McQueen’s Spring 2012 collection. It fits her perfectly. Simply match made in heaven. There are two Lady Gaga January covers, and I've seen the Vanity Fair which is equally breath-taking, but I still prefer this one. It's not very often that we witness Gaga in soft colors, exposing more of her bare natural beauty, with minimal makeup.
Shot by Matt Irwin, the singer wears various ethereal catwalk creations including Simone Rocha (above), Alexander McQueen and Richard Nicoll. "She looks dreamy - like marshmallows wrapped up in a sheath of fabulousness!"
Gaga wasn’t always the confident, assertive woman she is today, but she’s speaking out and about her mistakes to hopefully help her fans avoid similar experiences:
“I had abusive relationships,” she admitted. “I dated men much older than me — I was 15, they were 30 — which I don’t recommend. I was never brave enough to be the person who I am today.”
Lady Gaga also indicated how she’d like to be remembered once she’s done making music. “Many people really don’t like what I do — or how I sing or what music I make — but some of those people admire the commitment to the work,” she said. “That to me is more important than anything.”
