That or a troll doll… This is the 2nd time Gaga has been a Vogue cover story and I much prefer the former. What is this?! Check out the other photo Gaga leaked on her own social media network/site: I’m no Anna Wintour, but i think this look would have made for a more striking cover. The hat is by milliner Stephen Jones.
