Release Date: March 7th 2019 Photographer: Jean-Paul Goude
Celebrating 10 years of Lady Gaga and V Magazine, Stephan Gan (V's Editor-In-Chief) finally paired her with photographer Jean-Paul Goude for her 25th cover! The cover was photographed in Paris, August 28th 2018 before the Venice Film Festival.
For her cover look, Lady Gaga appears as an enigma beneath a pile of high exposing just her eyes and some extravagant jewelry. Thankfully, V Magazine has credited all of her jewelry and the details are as follows...
On her hands, Lady Gaga wears rings all provided by Swiss luxury jeweler de GRISOGONO who she previously wore in her 2011 Vogue shoot. On her right hand, Lady Gaga wears a large gold flower ring and a giant amethyst ring. The amethyst ring is from the "Melody of Colours" collection and is item number 50459-01 sold for 54,000 euros. Featuring a large round amethyst in white gold, it is accented with white diamonds, emeralds, peridots, rubies, and pink sapphires that come up along the side like petals. I have not been able to find the gold ring in any of de GRISOGONO's catalogues.
On her left hand, Lady Gaga stacked four amazing rings. She started with a large emerald ring from their High Jewellery collection that is set in prongs covered in small white diamonds on a band also made of emeralds. The three other rings are credited to de GRISOGONO as well but I have again not been able to find them in any catalogues.
On her right wrist, Lady Gaga begins with the two-coil "Serpenti" Bracelet from Bvlgari's High Jewelry collection. Set in white gold and pave diamonds, it is available for $100,000 by appointment or by store locator here.
Below her Bvlgari bracelet, Lady Gaga layers on the "Estrucan Inspiration Cuff Bracelet" from Van Cleef and Arpels. Created in the 1970's, this cuff bracelet is inspired by Etruscan jewelry in hammered yellow gold. Worn notably by Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, it remains in the Maison's collections to this day, an emblem of elegance and daring. It is also available for purchase through contacting here for $34,900.
On her left wrist, nestled into the hay, LG wears a gold and white diamond stack of bracelets that are actually all connected. They are from the 2017 "Coco Crush" jewelry collection which is no longer sold through Chanel but a new collection of "Coco Crush" jewelry, a line inspired by the iconic quilted Chanel purses, is available now.
The jade bracelet and etched silver cuff above the Chanel bracelet are not from Chanel but V credited only Chanel to her left wrist. The gold chains along the tops of her hands were also not credited by V. They are all likely the stylist's own as the feathers in her first look were. More details to come when I get my hands on the print magazine so stay tuned!
Lady Gaga was with a new team, styled by Alex Aikiu with hair by Kazue Deki and makeup by Mayia Alleaume for Maybelline. The magazine hits newsstands March 7th!
