Lady Gaga takes the gold on the cover of Glamour's "Women of the Year" issue. Gaga sports a toned-down version of the Botticelli Venus wig she's been wearing in the lead-up to ARTPOP, but rather than wearing white face makeup or a large merkin mask, she keeps it simple in a gold Gucci wrap-dress. Though in the interview she says she "feel[s] so much more comfortable with, like, a giant paper bag on [her] whole body and paint on [her] face," we're glad she skipped the theatrics for this gorgeous cover, which was shot by Patrick Demarchelier.

Inside, Gaga wears two "head sculptures" by Bob Recine: one consists of a mohawk made from Ed Hardy energy drink cans (Lady Gaga's beverage of choice, JK!), the other is a mask made from matches. Besides the headwear, Gaga is completely nude: her go-to look for magazine spreads, it seems. In the Ed Hardy shot, her makeup is barely there, while behind the matches, she wears a black lipstick which, somehow, manages not to be the focus of the photo.

In another shot, Gaga and Demarchelier channel her Jeff Koons-designed ARTPOP cover: she stands in a white room, in a white Burberry Prorsum dress, surrounded by blue reflecting balls. Her hair is half-up and half-down, but—duh, it's Gaga—is exaggerated. A lot of teasing went into this look.

The issue doesn't come out until November 5th, but you can peep Gaga's Woman of the Year spread, interview, and video on Glamour's website.
