Lady Gaga and Marc Jacobs cover V Magazine's "I Love New York" September issue in a combination of Manhattan muse, model and music. Lady Gaga's dressed as a thoroughly modern interpretation of the Statue Of Liberty, wearing a black lace bra and black lace underwear with a crown made of hair (love that look!), a tulle gown around her waist and an en fuego parchment torch that looks mysteriously like, well, you know. Oh, and naturally Gaga, styled by Nicola Formichetti, is sitting in a shopping cart with Marc Jacobs at her side, calmly looking away, probably dreaming up his 2012 collection. The iconic V logo? It's made of gum, courtesy of artist Dan Colen.

This isn't the first time Lady Gaga's been next to naked in the presence of Marc Jacobs. She performed live at Marc's Fashion Week afterparty last year in a see-through red lace bodysuit.
