The Most Shocking Lady Gaga Mag Cover? The Queen Monster Without Makeup

For someone who talks a blue streak about being yourself, Lady Gaga rarely applies a little cold cream and lets the see world her sans pancake foundation and glitter eyeshadow. Well, here is your Queen, ya monsters, in the next Harper's Bazaar wearing less makeup than she did on the cover of The Stefani Germanotta Band's Red and Blue. All kidding aside, these impressive pics by Inez & Vinoodh prove that maybe Gaga would be better off if she dropped the pomp and pretense and, every so often, strutted down the red carpet with a light dusting of powder, some clear lip gloss, and a pair of sensible shoes. We mean, it ain't gonna happen, but it's nice to think that it could.
