We’re as enamored as ever of Grace Coddington, Anna Wintour‘s creative counterpart at Vogue. According to the creative director, Lady Gaga “turned up completely naked under a white rubber raincoat” to be shot for their December issue. Check out the video to hear unflappable Grace relay that tidbit.
Lady Gaga’s spread for the magazine was Hansel and Gretel themed, also starred British model Lily Cole, and was shot by Annie Leibovitz. Doesn’t it make crawling into an oven look like going to the circus?
Cate Blanchett is the issue’s coverlady (we just can’t bear to call her a “covergirl”) and inside the magazine, she calls herself a theater geek and talks about not being either “cautious or careful” when it comes to career choices. And of course, her incredible editorial spread just makes us her seem even more inspiring.
Between Gaga, Lily, and Cate, somehow my hankering for pale and unusual frocks just tripled. I’ll cop a more casual version of Cate’s glittery Vogue look with Free People’s white gold sequin slip dress. I also like the laney dress from Cynthia Steffe; it retains the fluffy detail of dresses worn by Lady Gaga and Lily Cole in their fairy-tale themed shoot, while being quite a bit more wearable for a non-pop star/non-model.
