Lady Gaga and ,Penélope Cruz and Linda Evangelista,, covers the September 2014 issue of Harper’s Bazaar Magazine photographed by Sebastian Faena and styled by Carine Roitfeld.
The icon issue features 19 ladies including like Cindy Crawford, Stephanie Seymour, Penelope Cruz and Lady Gaga.
Karl Lagerfeld, interviews Lady Gaga where she speaks about getting inspiration from past style icons.
“I’ve been recently enjoying looking far and wide for the best vintage fashion I can find. Clothing with a story, a past. Heavy fabrics, jewels, veils,” she shares. “My latest trip is feeling a connection to all women throughout history through fashion. I love wearing clothes knowing that I’m carrying the spirit of previous fashionistas, and living out more of their fantasies, and my own.”
“I believe clothes carry the soul of the designer and the person wearing them forever, so I look for clothes with a soul,” she adds. “Perhaps it’s something only I can see. But I know it’s real.”
Lagerfeld calls Gaga “the world’s ever-changing fashion icon,” which is a big honor for the songstress.
“It’s an honor for you to say that, Karl. You are very classic. Classic for me is something that changes all the time, like a drifting anchor,” she explains. “Even though I’m changing all the time, I’m always thinking of iconography—which is repetition of images—so I’m always different.”
“I’m in a way wearing the same outfit over and over, but I’m just a different expression of the same woman,” she continues. “When I leave the house, I bear the souls of fashionistas who came before me; I continue to live glamorously to celebrate them. I’m just being me.”
