Lady Gaga is to receive the Editor of The Year prize at The Daily’s Fashion Los Angeles Awards.
The 29-year-old singer is being recognised for her work with V magazine for which she was responsible for organising 16 covers as guest editor for the pre-spring issue that was released this January.
The Daily’s editor-in-chief Brandusa Niro said: “We are absolutely thrilled to honour Lady Gaga with this award. She is an enormous talent and one of the most complex and astonishing artists of our time. We celebrate her tremendous contributions to music, fashion, film, and culture, all reflected in the way she conceptualised her issue of V Magazine, and these breathtaking covers.”
The covers were dedicated to the creators, collectors, and collaborators who have inspired the ‘Born This Way’ hitmakers life in fame and fashion including Karl Lagerfeld and her fiancé Taylor Kinney.
Talking about her V issue, Gaga said: “This issue of V is about all of these people coming together to express a passion for art and fashion, to really ‘go there’ to make a great statement and to change things … I feel like we all share an appetite for living a life of passion and creativity … it’s like we all found our immortality through art and fashion … we share that deep spiritual place.
“These are people who have kept me and protected me over the years, because they’ve wanted me to survive … that’s part of the message of this issue: we have to carry each other through the decades and take care of one another and honour each other’s work. I am saying thank you to all these people for everything they’ve given to me … I want to make sure the world knows who they are … it’s a guard of people … I call them my Fashion Guard!”
The Daily’s FLA Awards will take place on March 20, 2016 at the Sunset Tower Hotel in West Hollywood.
