Lady Gaga Poses As Half Naked Lady Liberty
Lady Gaga is on the cover of V Magazine dressed as Lady Liberty.
The newest issue of V Magazine features Lady Gaga on the cover of it posing as the Statue Of Liberty. This issue is called The New York Issue. Gaga shares the cover with designer Marc Jacobs as the issue celebrates everything that makes New York great. As you might imagine, Lady Gaga’s Lady Liberty pushes the envelope.
Clad in only her bra and panties (as her dress falls off her body), Lady Gaga has her hair made up to resemble the Statue Of Liberty’s crown and is holding a torch over her head. Where the original Statue Of Liberty is all grace and beauty, Gaga’s is all abs, lace and blond hair.
V Editor Stephen Gan says of Lady Gaga, “Just as the Statue of Liberty was France’s gift to America, Gaga is, to us, New York’s greatest gift to pop culture and fashion.” He continues, “She embodies everything V is about, and is also a beacon of the city’s creativity and hope.”
While the argument can be made that Gaga has turned herself into an American icon and is the embodiment of the America work ethic, maybe she has finally struck out. Yes, she is working her butt off as she puts out hit after hit and tours unrelentingly. Yes, she created this image for herself and built her career up from nothing. Yes, you could argue that she could and maybe even should pose as the Statue of Liberty. But could she not do it with some clothes on?
Her body looks fantastic. She clearly works hard to stay in shape and all the dancing and performing she does every night is doing her figure well. But we have all seen it. We have seen the pictures where she wore little more than her bra and panties to a Yankee game. We have seen Lady Gaga walking around in see-thru dresses with tape over her nipples and tiny panties on underneath. We have seen her on the cover of Rolling Stone wearing only some well-placed bubbles. We have seen the Telephone video. We get it. She looks great naked.
At a time when the country is struggling to redefine itself as we work to pull ourselves out of an economic downturn while still dealing with the effects of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan it would have been nice to see Lady Gaga put together a Lady Liberty outfit that truly inspired. Something that told the world what America is really about. A look that is worthy of her creative genius and warped, if not inspired, fashion sense. What we got is a girl who looks fantastic in her underwear and we have all seen that before. Frankly, we are starting to get a little bit bored with it.
Lady Gaga might be V Magazines inspiration. She might be what the country is all about and she might be the definition of New York hustle, but this time she let us all down a little.
