If you're the owner of an iPad and willing to pay 99 cents, you can have access to more Gaga than you'll get in this month's print version of Vogue's Power Issue and even more than you'll get in the typically multimedia-friendly online version.

The Vogue Cover Exclusive App will be available in the iPad app store for the first time from midnight Wednesday, EST. The app, which focuses only on the magazine's cover story each month, launches with Lady Gaga shot by Mario Testino.

Vogue's stated goal is to make each cover story a "more personal user experience."

The app will have the full text of the cover story, exclusive video from the photo shoot (which hopefully explains Gaga's bleached eyebrows) and author Jonathan Van Meter's audio diary, which sounds a bit like the director's commentary on a DVD.

What makes this move exciting is that Vogue is trying to offer something different to the iPad consumer and creating a platform to do that. Additionally, they are creating an additional branding opportunity for advertisers. The March editon of the Cover Exclusive is sponsored by MAC Cosmetics.
