The cover star of CR Fashion Book's 'Classic Eccentric'-themed Issue 7 needs no introduction. Lady Gaga, pop music's reigning queen (and queen of much more, if you were to ask us) was photographed by the legendary Bruce Weber, making this her first-ever completely un-retouched cover story. In a concept dreamed up by our editor in chief, Lady Gaga—the soon-to-be devoted wife—appears on both our front and back covers as a bride dressed in classic white versus a bride dressed in off-kilter black.
Between the two covers, you'll find the sort of unique cast of characters that CR is known for assembling—some eccentric, some classic, and some an intriguing blend of both—but who better to lead the pack than Gaga? She has always stood out for her originality, her boldness, and her ability to help us celebrate our own oddness and eccentricities through music. After her third studio album Artpop made her the world's most successful pop artist, Lady Gaga followed a new path with the sound of jazz music and a most appropriate partner in crime, Tony Bennett. Starting this fall, she'll make her television debut in the next season of Ryan Murphy's hit series, American Horror Story: Hotel.
