SuBo vs. Lady Gaga via Vogue?

Remember that gorgeous photo of Lady Gaga starring as the witch in Annie Leibovitz's Hansel and Gretel-themed Vogue spread? Turns out creative director Grace Coddington (the true star of this fall's The September Issue) was gunning for Susan Boyle (above) to get the part. The London Times reports (via New York magazine):

"Annie Leibovitz wanted her too," says Coddington wistfully, "but I think Anna thought it was just all too British and not right." Wintour raised Lady Gaga against Coddington's SuBo. "I have to say I didn't really know who Lady Gaga was. She turned up in a white rubber coat, stark naked underneath. No buttons, nothing -- and completely you know, shaved, and this huge wig because she's so insecure without it. But she was wonderful." Hold on, Grace, you famously don't like celebrities. "I don't rule them out altogether if they're the right person for the job. It's because of characters like that that I still love my job."

We don't need to tell you how much we love La Gaga, but there is something sort of genius about SuBo in a Vogue spread. There's still time to put it on your list for Santa.
