When Nichola Formichetti beagn to post these images (shot for the September issue of Vogue Homme Nippon) on his blog, with no explanation, the internet buzzed with rumours that they were of Lady Gaga.
They’ve now been credited to “Jo Calderone “but speculation as to the true identity of the model has only grown.
Fashion Copious went deeper: “So why does everyone think this is Lady Gaga? For one, the tie between Nicola and Lady Gaga: he’s her stylist. Secondly Gaga has previously worked with Knight. And thirdly, and a little more far fetched, is that Jo Calderone is Alejandro with the letter C added. Alejandro is the title of Lady Gaga’s most recent video.
Additionally, as much as they might have tried to hide it, you can still see her breasts showing through a little.”
ONTD said, “Many of the top Lady Gaga sites say without question that the very male-appearing Jo is Gaga’s alter-ego and how she is able to avoid the paparazzi when she needs.”
Could Lady G and “Jo” be related?
I think the pictures bear a striking resemblance to Amy Winehouse.
