Lady Gaga with her dog Asia and Penelope Cruz take individual covers of Harper’s Bazaar September 2014 issues highlighting Icons by Carine Roitfeld, spotlighting unforgettable women who are always in fashion.
“I’ve been recently enjoying looking far and wide for the best vintage fashion I can find,” Lady Gaga told Karl Lagerfeld, who interviewed her for the piece. “Clothing with a story, a past. Heavy fabrics, jewels, veils. My latest trip is feeling a connection to all women throughout history through fashion. I love wearing clothes knowing that I’m carrying the spirit of previous fashionistas, and living out more of their fantasies, and my own. I believe clothes carry the soul of the designer and the person wearing them forever, so I look for clothes with a soul. Perhaps it’s something only I can see. But I know it’s real.”
