Lady Gaga will grace the cover of the U.K. edition of ELLE and in anticipation of the new issue, a ‘Behind the Cover’ video has been released, featuring the Mother Monster in an array of soft pastel frocks. It’s a grainy, artsy clip and once again, Gaga makes love to the camera. She is in her element and incredibly comfortable when the lens is on her.


Gaga does not speak at all and is instead shown dancing and posing. She wears a fluffy pink confection, with some of the ensemble’s lace creeping up her face. Her hair is fixed in a short, blunt blond bob throughout. Gaga sips a Starbucks-like beverage through a straw while wearing a mint (or mojito or green tea) hued, deconstructed sheath. Remember what she said in the prelude to the ‘Marry the Night’ video? She pointedly mentioned that the nurses wheeling her on a gurney were wearing green hairnets intentionally since she believes mint will be a hot hue next season. Nothing is accidental in Gaga’s ever-fashionable world.

Gaga cycles through a blue and a white outfit, too, and she’s even smoking in one shot.

The remix of ‘Electric Chapel’ plays in the background while Gaga frolics the night away in front of the camera. Popcrush cannot wait to see the cover image and the accompanying spread.
