UPDATED AUGUST 15th 2012: Added a new image via TFS that revealed the inside fold out covers featuring a 1949 cover shot by Irving Penn and Vogue‘s first ever cover.
Grace Coddington styled the 26 year old singer in a purple Marc Jacobs Fall Winter 2012 patched-up dress—-in different shape and color from the runway version—-for the September cover of Vogue US, photographed by Mert Alas & Marcus Piggot.
This is a nice September cover, even though the red banner kinda unnecessary. Don’t forget that this issue is their BIGGEST EVER with total of 916 pages (658 of them are ads!), beats the 840 pages from September 2007! Even though Elle Indonesia still wins with 1000+ pages for their anniversary issue earlier this April. Oh, and Lady Gaga give a better front page image, and wig, than her first for the magazine last year.
