Lady Gaga Goes Sans Makeup for 'Harper's Bazaar'

She’s generally all about costumes and alter egos, but in the October issue of Harper’s Bazaar, Lady Gaga proves she’s just as fierce without all the props. “Whether I’m wearing lots of makeup or no makeup, I’m always the same person inside,” she tells the magazine, posing barefaced on the cover. “I think what has been lovely about my relationship with the public is that they expect something unexpected from me.”

And despite managing to consistently shock fans and critics with her getups — she even sported protrusions on her cheekbones last time she graced the cover of the mag — when it comes to her own self-image, she says she’s quite comfortable in her own skin. “I’m very free-spirited,” she says. “Even when I was a kid, I used to run around naked with the babysitter, driving her crazy.”

When the star isn’t running around the world or making a statement on the dance floor, she stays in shape with other activities. “I do yoga, I do Bikram and I run, and I eat really healthy. You know, my work sort of feeds me. I keep in shape by working hard.”

Pretty or not, she puts it all out there and I give her credit for that alone.

Trish on

She is beautiful all natural as well!

Suz on

Um.. she’s clearly wearing makeup.

Suz on

She looks great, but she’s clearly wearing makeup. Soo.. the headline is misleading!

Nesa on

Very pretty..and she looks so seren; but she IS wearing makeup. I would like to see the pics in color

caitlin on

It’s natural looking, but not natural. It looks like she’s wearing lipstick and some eyeshadow with sheen, not to mention white liner for her lower waterline. So I agree with the others who posted, she looks pretty, but she this isn’t bare skinned gaga.

Mariah on

She looks great! So much better!

Tammy on

Disappointed that she is wearing make-up…if she is going to bare-all, she needs to be bare!

Brooklyn on

It sure looks like she’s wearing makeup to me.
