Once again, Lady Gaga transforms into the fashion queen of our dreams.

The Oscar-winner extravagantly covers the March/April edition of V Magazine in her best spread yet. Celebrating 10 years of the mega star and the publication working together -- as well as Gaga's 25th time gracing the cover -- the photo shoot sees renowned photographer Jean-Paul Goude transform Gaga into a "couture doll."

"We tried to turn Gaga into a living doll, a living icon, like the figurines that people collect and put on their mantelpiece, but life size," explains Goude about the singer's shape-shifting looks. On the magazine's cover, Gaga shows off her version of a showgirl, wearing a black Armani Prive dress, complete with a pink feathered coat and an extraordinary headpiece by Shaun Leane for Alexander McQueen.

The second photo released features the A Star Is Born leading lady in what Goude calls "an intergalactic Marie Antoinette" look. The pop star dons a metallic silver, strapless Atelier Versace gown paired with Gaga's signature platform heels, and a mega wig with curls and feathers.

For a decade, V has had the privilege of serving as @ladygaga’s canvas. When she was guest editor of V99 in 2016, she referred to her numerous cover stars as “cover humans,” a term that collapsed the artwork (the cover) and the subject (the star) into one supreme being. Gaga, to us, represents the ultimate “COVERHUMAN”. #V118 marks her 25th time gracing a V cover. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Photographed in Paris by @jeanpaulgoudeofficial as an intergalactic Marie Antoinette in Atelier @Versace. #V118 is on newsstands March 7th.

Gaga has been a couture goddess and style icon since she first stepped out onto the music scene. V Magazine's accompanying piece reflects on their first time working with "pop's latest anti-ingénue" at 22 to the world "falling head-over-platform-heels for Gaga."
