Annie Leibovitz shot this Hansel and Gretel editorial for Vogue (inspired by Richard Jones’s production of the 1893 Engelbert Humperdinck opera, opening this month at the Metropolitan Opera) with Lady Gaga and model Lily Cole.
“I’ve always been an outspoken and extreme dresser,” Lady Gaga tells Vogue. According to the mag, Lady Gaga arrived at Vogue to discuss the shoot wearing a trailing white chiffon Galliano goddess gown with a Philip Treacy headdress that spelled VOGUE in clipped white feathers. A few days later she she showed up to see Creative Director Grace Coddington, “stark naked except for her white rubber raincoat and some very, very high heels!” She then promptly threw herself in the mud at Leibovitz’s feet.
