Lady Gaga is flourishing right now. She’s got American Horror Story: Hotel coming up and suing a breast milk company! How diverse! Such excitement! Whatever will tomorrow bring? How’s about a new arty magazine cover shoot. Gaga’s got that going for her, too.

Carine Roitfeld has married the global star on the cover of her hefty coffee-table publication, CR Fashion Book. Shot by “jazz enthusiast” Bruce Weber, the bridal-themed series is the publication’s first-ever unretouched shoot. In Roitfeld’s eyes, Gaga’s “ability to help us celebrate our own oddness and eccentricities through music” is reason enough to crown her as today’s “classic eccentric.” The photos themselves are stunning. Gaga’s in her element—more than ever before. Folks eager to read the “revealing interview” will have to wait until September 3 to do that. Until then, check the images here.
