Lady Gaga goes Lady Liberty with Marc Jacobs

V67_COVER_A_LR Iconic pop star, iconic statue -- Lady Gaga was bound to interpret New York City's Lady Liberty at some point. 

With designer Marc Jacobs, whose clothes she frequently dons via his eponymous collection or his work at the house of Louis Vuitton, Gaga covers this month's V Magazine in a salute to NYC. 

"Just as the Statue of Liberty was France's gift to America, Gaga is, to us, New York's greatest gift to pop culture and fashion," editor Stephen Gan said. 

This will mark Gaga's second V cover in a year, the first a tan-tastic collaboration with Mario Testino (who also shot the current cover).

Designer Marc Jacobs and partner Lorenzo Martone split -- or did they?

Mac-jacobs Say it ain't so -- Marc Jacobs and his longtime boyfriend Lorenzo Martone have broken up, according to a new report.

"They've both been telling people that they broke up," friends of the couple told the New York Post's Page Six, also alleging that Martone was absent from the wedding of Robert Duffy, Jacobs' business partner, last Tuesday in Provincetown, Mass. 

The Boston Herald, however, has a full party report on Duffy's nuptials saying that Jacobs did bring Martone as his plus one. Gawker helpfully adds that grainy paparazzi pics of the event do not confirm Martone's attendance. 

Wedding date or not, Marc and Lorenzo started dating in 2008, making their public debut at New York's annual Met Gala. They were later engaged, then rumored to be married over the holidays in December 2009.

While no confirmation was ever given, Martone did fess up to an "intimate ceremony" between him and Jacobs in St. Barth's, as covered by the Ministry in a lengthy profile of their luxurious maybe-married life just two months ago.

Do you think Marc and Lorenzo are dunzo? Tell us in comments.

Married life for Marc Jacobs and Lorenzo Martone: their home, habits and matching rings

Lorenzo and marcThough garment is usually Topic A at New York Fashion Week, the hemlines or Band of Outsiders' Boy Scout chic may not be the most exciting part for some. Instead, it's the New York Magazine profile of Lorenzo Martone, the tall, dark husband of fashion superstar Marc Jacobs

For months, rumors circulated that the engaged pair had tied the knot -- met by outright denials or tight lips from the couple. Then, over the New Year, photos of the style guys surfaced from St. Barth's, decked out in white and posing with a layer cake topped with mini-replicas of themselves.

Where on earth would anyone get the idea they were married!?

The magazine quotes Martone, a fashion publicist, as saying the tropical celebration was an "intimate ceremony." Confirmation much? Check out some fun facts from the story about the lives of "Fashion's First Husband" Martone and ubiquitous thread maker Jacobs:

A Boy's Best Friend: Though the family business is schmatas, these boys love bling. They sport matching pink gold rings from Boucheron, with bears engraved inside the bands ("We call each other bears because of our facial hair and all that," Martone said). Also, Lorenzo rocks diamonds on a Chanel timepiece and a ring of emerald-cut stones from Jacobs....
