Lady Gaga vogues on the cover of Madame Figaro and it might be the best she’s ever been styled by a magazine.

It’s the kind of dress that everyone looks at and thinks of Gaga. A lot of her more mainstream editorials had her in fairly conventional looks that were styled to Gaga levels, but this is something that’s already at her level without any styling at all. Love the sunglasses, too. Like the dress, they’re just so Gaga. Kudos all around to the styling team, who seem to have recognized that the best way to style Gaga is to style her like Gaga; not like an Anna-Wintour-approved version of her in couture gowns against classical backdrops.
