After placing Gisele Bundchen, one of the top models of our century on the cover of the premiere issue, you’d wonder who can Porter Magazine follow up with. LADY GAGA! Its a definite surprise here but also makes total sense. We’ve seen Lady Gaga in all her craziness but for Porter she sat bare-faced for the shoot and gave the magazine an intimate yet candid interview. Stay tuned, issue 2 is due out Friday April 4th via Net-A-Porter’s iPhone app, newstands globally and net-a-porter.com.
Lucy Yeomans, Editor-in-Chief, says: “It is often easy to forget that there is actually a young woman – and an exceptional musician – behind the wigs and the costumes, the hype and the theatrics. With these pictures, we wanted to reveal the woman behind the Lady, the artist behind the artifice. Indeed when I first saw Inez & Vinoodh’s shot of Gaga wearing nothing but her grandmother’s vintage robe – the piece she often wears to write her music in – I just knew it had to be the cover. It felt authentic, personal and beautiful, and unlike any image I have seen of her before.”
