Lady Gaga has become an American icon herself in these modern times. Here our girl embodies one of our enduring symbols, the Statue of Liberty, as only she can.

Lady Gaga puts a new spin on the quintessential New York symbol.
With designer Marc Jacobs close by, the 24-year-old's long, blonde hair is sculpted into Lady Liberty's famous crown as she clutches a burning paper torch in the latest of many memorable Lady Gaga pictures from recent years.
