11. Lady Gaga

Slimane photographed the cover of Lady Gaga's 2009 EP The Fame Monster. The cover was initially rejected by Gaga's record company, but she eventually convinced them to run with the Gothic-inspired photos. The typeface used on the cover is also reminiscent of Dior's sans-serif fonts. When Slimane returned from his sabbatical between Dior and Laurent, Gaga tweeted it was a dream that he was back working in fashion.
