Singer and actress Lady Gaga became the heroine of the October issue of Allure magazine.
Photographer Daniel Jackson worked on the shoot for the publication.
"I've never felt beautiful, and I still have days when I don't feel like it. The fears I've been experiencing all my life because of bullying at a young age come back to bite me. But then I apply makeup, and I feel like a superhero. It gives me wings to fly," the star said of her attitude to cosmetics.
The theme was chosen because Lady Gaga recently launched her line of beauty products.
