ATTENTION FANS: Lady Gaga's Vogue Cover Debut

TELEGRAPH.CO.UK - The cover of US Vogue is the most coveted prize in fashion. It means that you have the approval of the most powerful figure in the industry: Anna Wintour, the editor-in-chief.

Thursday's morning  the March issue of the style bible was officially released, which sees Lady Gaga anointed as Wintour's 'chosen one'.

The avant-garde pop star and fashion muse was photographed by Mario Testino. On the cover she wears a blush-toned silk kimono robe by designer Haider Ackermann. The accompanying interview, for which writer Jonathan Van Meter accompanied Gaga on tour, speaks of the star being committed to the outrageous. So, it will come as no surprise to British fashion observers that it was the London designers who accepted her with open arms first.

Van Meter writes: "The fashion world sees something more precise: the influence of a very specific tribe of English eccentrics - Leigh Bowery, Isabella Blow, et al. 'The fashion community in general got me much earlier than everyone else,' [Gaga] says. 'But actually, I felt truly embraced by this London cultural movement, that McQueen, Isabella [Blow], Daphne Guinness wing of the English crowd. I remember when I first started doing photo shoots, people would say, 'My God, you look so much like Isabella Blow, it scares me.' And McQueen used to say, 'Oh, my God, your boobs!... Even your boobs are like hers!'"

When Van Meter first meets the star she is wearing "a slinky black-and-white striped dress-a gown, really-with a four-foot train and shoes that-do I even need mention?- make her feet look as if they are screwed on backward. The heels bring her nearly up to my height of six feet. (She is five feet one.) She has a Bride of Frankenstein up-do, with a brooch perched on top."

Yet Gaga has honed a regal and refined disposition: "Lady Gaga may be behaving as if she were a member of Marie Antoinette's coterie-the powdered wig, the binding costume, the impeccable courtliness."

She adds: "I am quite down-to-earth for such an eccentric person..."

    SPOKANE VALLEY, Wash.- What started as an investigation into two wedding thieves, turned into the discovery of a prostitution operation.

Eventually, Sierra and Josh Davies were arrested for it. Josh remains in the Spokane County Jail, facing 22 charges ranging from theft to money laundering. Sierra is facing brand new charges: prostitution.
