Photograph of the Day > Lady Gaga by Nobuyoshi Araki

This image is certainly the most erotic 'Photograph of the Day' feature; with Lady Gaga dressed in nothing but a rope constrained around her. This is bondage photography to the extreme! But you can't expect anything less from (pornographic) Japanese photographer Nobuyoshi Araki. Despite this image being 'uncomfortable' for some viewers Araki has managed to capture Lady Gaga's wild character and her inner 'Marilyn Monroe' glamour. The coloured paint splotches slightly conceals the mature content of this photo whilst adding a vintage vibrant effect. Even though 'bondage' is associated with pain and S&M this photo doesn't convey any of that as Lady Gaga smiles naturally at the camera. Some may say this is beautiful, others grotesque; but when it comes to Lady Gaga, the least you can expect is a single opinion. Bravo for out roar.

This 'New Star' shoot featured in Vogue Hommes Japan with fashion direction by Nicola Formichetti, and styling by Shun Watanabe.
