Once upon a time (August 2010 to be precise), Vogue Hommes Japan featured a boy with Italian descent. His name was Jo Calderone from Palermo, Sicily. He claimed that he had been working as a mechanic in his dad’s shop since he was a kid and Vogue was his first photo shoot ever. A simple guy who is a first timer in modeling rarely ends up in an international magazine cover so easily. But as it turned out, Jo Calderone is a no average Joe. He turns out to be Lady Gaga—a SUPERSTAR.
Again this August, Lady Gaga wore her Jo Calderone persona for her cover art in her Born this Way single You and I. With cigarette staged in her mouth and androgynous looks, Lady Gaga was photographed by Inez Van Lamsweerde & Vinoodh Matadin. She was styled by Nicola Formichetti in Dior Homme with hair by Frederic Aspiras, makeup by Val Garland and art direction by Stephen Gan.

Eek! Lady Gaga is covered with very thick and disgusting vernix caseosa!
