Lady Gaga Dresses as (Nearly Naked) Statue of Liberty
Lady Gaga becomes Lady Liberty!
For the "New York Issue" of fashion mag V, the pop superstar puts her edgy spin on one of America's -- and NYC's -- most iconic symbols.
With designer Marc Jacobs close by, the 24-year-old singer has long, blonde hair sculpted into the Statue of Liberty's famous crown; wearing a bra, panties, draped fabric falling off her waist, she holds a burning paper torch.
The star (real name: Stefani Germanotta) was born and raised in the Big Apple.
Explains V editor Stephen Gan of the pic, snapped by photographer Mario Testino: "Just as the Statue of Liberty was France's gift to America, Gaga is, to us, New York's greatest gift to pop culture and fashion...she has become a bonafide genius and we can safely declare her our muse."
