Lady GaGa Poses As Half Naked Statue Of Liberty For V Magazine

V Magazine - Lady Gaga - Lady Liberty Cover

Lady Gaga may be a fiercly original pop star, but let’s face it, her gig has become pretty predictable, put her in a situation, have her pose half naked in that situation and then move on. That was the case for her recent V Magazine shoot in which she posed as the statue of Liberty…half naked.

In the photo (shown above), she wears a lacy bra and Calvin Klein undies as part of a collaboration she undertook with famed designer Marc Jacobs.

That gown hanging off her half-naked body? That would be a Louis Vuitton evening gown. Read the rest of this entry »


V Celebrates Voluptuous Women

In my recent article, I mentioned V Magazine’s The Size Issue, which features two different covers—Dakota Fanning and Gabby Sidibe. If you’re reading into V’s figure of speech, pint-sized Dakota represents the “great things come in small packages” analogy of a child star who made her mark in the ‘biz before even hitting her teens.

As for Gabby, if you haven’t heard about her yet, she’s the newest plus-sized “it” girl to make it to Hollywood. She played the lead role in Precious: Based on the Novel “Push” by Sapphire, last year’s critically-acclaimed Lee Daniels movie about an obese, illiterate, and abused teenager named Precious who lives in Harlem, New York with her dysfunctional family. The poignant drama, which also stars singers Mariah Carey and Mo’Nique, has earned various nominations and awards.

Gabby, whose real name is Gabourey Sidibe, makes her fashion debut on V Magazine’s cover. The 26-year-old is the star of their “Big Love” feature, which embraces voluptuous women in the realm of fashion and beauty. What a refreshing change from the starving size-0 models and celebs!

She also recently attended the Golden Globe Awards, where she was nominated as best performance by an actress in a motion picture drama. She lost to Sandra Bullock for The Blind Side, but she was more excited about being in the red carpet with her favorite celebrities.

“It’s really exciting,” she told Bill Keveney of USA Today. “It’s a crazy parallel universe I never thought I’d be in.”

Keep your head up, Gabby! I’d love to see more of your talent in this industry.


Dakota Fanning Is All Grown Up

As a pint-sized child star, she captured our hearts with her acting skills in I Am Sam (2001), Taken (2002), The Cat In The Hat (2003), and War of the Worlds (2005), to name a few.

Can you believe she’s turning 16 next month? While most Hollywood child stars make a difficult and troubled transition to teenhood or adulthood, Dakota has managed to do it gracefully.

She makes a stunning debut on one of the recent covers of V Magazine’s The Size Issue, where she dons Alexander Wang’s threads. The other cover features Gabby Sidibe, star of Precious.

In the cover story, Dakota talks about family, school, and her non-showbiz life. She also talks about her role in the upcoming The Runaways, a coming-of-age true story about an all-girl rock band in the ’70s, where she co-stars with Twilight’s Kirsten Stewart.

I admire how Dakota has kept it together without succumbing to the rebellious druggie and partying lifestyle that most coming-of-age Hollywood stars go through (Hello Britney, Lindsay, and Miley!) As a kid, I always saw her as adult trapped in a kid’s body. She’s always had the mature yet adorable aura, which must’ve been why she was able to pull off those challenging roles.

What do you think about her V Magazine cover?
