For a decade, V has had the privilege of serving as @ladygaga’s canvas. When she was guest editor of V99 in 2016, she referred to her numerous cover stars as “cover humans,” a term that collapsed the artwork (the cover) and the subject (the star) into one supreme being. Gaga, to us, represents the ultimate “COVERHUMAN”. #V118 marks her 25th time gracing a V cover. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Photographed in Paris by @jeanpaulgoudeofficial as an intergalactic Marie Antoinette in Atelier @Versace. #V118 is on newsstands March 7th.

"She's an Enigma!" the magazine dubs GaGa. Calling the "American Horror Story: Hotel" actress " the ultimate shape-shifter ," the magazine reveals that this collaboration with GaGa and Goude was long awaited. The cover shoot marks GaGa's 25th cover with V Magazine that is taken 10 years since her first cover shoot for the publication.
"We tried to turn GaGa into a living doll, a living icon, like the figurines that people collect and put on their mantelpiece, but life size," Goude tells the magazine about the theme of the photo shoot. The photos were taken in Paris.
GaGa has been known for her changing persona and outrageous fashion since launching her music career. Summarizing her artistic journey, the magazine says of the "Born This Way" hitmaker, "For ten years, GaGa's artistry has been an adaptive, widely applicable remedy, from critically acclaimed acting on the big screen, to her Enigma residency in Vegas, which would inspire the cosmic, futuristic couture queen seen now on our cover. Not bad for someone who, in her very first V interview professed a simple dream 'of wanting to make something of [myself].' "
The cover shoot comes on the heels of GaGa's first Oscar win for Best Original Song for "Shallow", which she co-wrote for "A Star Is Born". She also stars in the drama musical film, earning an Oscar nomination for best actress for her portrayal of Ally.
