Lady Gaga let the cat out of the bag on Twitter: she’s American Vogue‘s September covergirl. Yes, the all-important September issue is refreshingly offbeat this year and Gaga looks great in a fried lion’s mane and that striking Marc Jacobs gown. She was shot by powerhouse duo Mert Alas & Marcus Piggott and styled by Grace Coddington (of course). The cover story is already up online, too, so it looks like this was a coordinated leak.

Between this and Gwen Stefani‘s Harper’s Bazaar cover, Fall is shaping up to be pretty pink.
