As we reported yesterday, a set of photos taken by Nick Knight for Japan’s “Vogue Hommes” feature a (presumably) male model by the name of Jo Calderone.

A significant number of sources claim, however, that “Jo” is actually Lady Gaga’s alter ego, and that the “Poker Face” singer went incognito for the photo shoot.

Seriously, people think this guy is her.

The only definitive connection between the two is stylist Nicola Formicetti, but some Gaga fans remain adamant. “I’d put money on it,” said one observer.

Think it’s her? Check him/her out …

Is this Vogue Japan model actually Lady Gaga in drag?

“The nose gives it away to start. Then the eyes, then the girly mouth.” The apparent lack of Adam’s apple would be another clue, THG readers have opined.

Other evidence and theories circulating online:

  • The mystery model’s first name, Jo, corresponds with Gaga’s middle name, Joanne (her birth name is Stefani Joanne Angelina Germanotta).
  • ABC News points out that “Jo Calderone” is an anagram of “Alejandro” … with an extra c and o. Brilliant detective work there, ABC News.
  • Last year’s Lady Gaga hermaphrodite rumors not only failed to rankle the star – she seemed to embrace, even feed into that bit of gossip.
