Lady Gaga is naked in Vanity Fair’s first 2012 issue, but that’s less interesting than when she wears clothes, like on the cover, which might be her take on Eliza Doolittle doing Valentine’s Day on steroids, perhaps. Despite the getup, Gaga looks more like Gaga than the crazy girl in the big head-thing. Maybe it’s her simple makeup, or that we’re getting used to her costuming, or just that she’s starting to do it in a more sophisticated way.
And here are her two January 2012 British Elle covers, on which she also looks quite pretty. So this is how two major magazines are ringing in the New Year: with Lady Gaga and yet, a little restraint.
