Lady Gaga’s OTT schtick has worn thin for me, so I wouldn’t say I’m the biggest fan of this cover look. But then I read these quotes from her inside the mag:
“Fashion saved my life. It was complete liberation… it made me feel powerful, ambitious and much more resilient.”
“We all need an image that screams, ‘I’m an individual!’ I think Jennifer Aniston is beautiful — she’s gorgeous — but I prefer to look interesting rather than pretty.”
I’ve always been in the “I want to look pretty” camp—even more so as a beauty editor—so the concept of using an outrageous fashion and beauty sense as a form of therapy, in a way, is definitely foreign to me. But this gives me a bit more of an appreciation for what’s behind those outfits!
What do you think? Do you prefer to look pretty or interesting?
