Lady GaGa turns the heat on in the pages of V60, the July/August 2009 issue of V Magazine.

Paying homage to Madonna's 'Like a Virgin' and S&M look in the infamous 'Sex' book, Lady GaGa sizzles on the beach in a bondage bra and the famous Nasir Mazhar galaxy hat.

Lady GaGa was styled by Nicola Formichetti and photographed by Sebastian Faena.

Implications - Lady Gaga has inspired many photographers and designers to go far when it comes to abstract, avant-garde concepts. What's "strange" is now fully accepted by the mainstream audience due to Gaga's influence. Fashion brands can take advantage of this on-going theme by creating elaborately outrageous outfits and marketing them as a product of Gaga's influence. This makes a great selling point that will definitely attract a mass audience.
