Lady Gaga ‘Vogue Beauty Queen’ Thanks to Peruvian Photographer Mario Testino

Fresh on the heals of finishing the engagement photos for Prince William and his finance Kate Middleton Peruvian photographer Mario Testino has glammed up Lady Gaga for her Vogue cover shoot.

Testino, who grew up in Lima, Peru and once wanted to be a priest, was summoned by Vogue and Lady Gaga herself to shoot Vogue’s cover for the March issue.  The actual photo session was back in November of last year at the Museum of Fine Arts in Antwerp, Belgium.

Lady Gaga clearly is pleased with Testino’s work loading a’twitpic’ of the cover on her Twitter account: “They used to call me rabbit teeth in school, and now I’m a real live VOGUE BEAUTY QUEEN!”  This is the second time Testino photographed Lady Gaga for a magazine cover, back in September 2009 he shot her cover for V Magazine
