Lady Gaga poses for January 2010 issue of 944 magazine. The 23-year-old pop singer, who was styled by superstar Nicola Formichetti, impressed 944 editor-in-chief Martine Bury so much that the magazine could only pick her for the cover of their Vanguard issue.
“Lady Gaga has liberated music and fashion the way David Bowie and other Brit Glam rockers did in the seventies – using costume, artifice and drama while bending gender norms and conventions. But she also one ups everyone with her phenomenal vocal talent and truly unique aesthetic,” Martine said. She also addded, “She’s way ahead of her time and the only universal artist to truly break ground and provoke thought since Madonna.” [via JustJared]
