Lady Gaga is again gracing the cover of “Harper’s Bazaar.” She’s just doing it without face implants—or even makeup--this time.

For the magazine’s October issue, the daring diva appears on the cover and subsequent spread without any of her usual theatrics and wild looks.

“Whether I’m wearing lots of makeup or no makeup, I’m always the same person inside,” Gaga told “Bazaar.” (Though, on a technicality, Laura Brown writes that the photos taken by fashion duo Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin were “basically barefaced.”)

Gaga goes on to talk of her experience with fans and their expectations of her. “I think what has been lovely about my relationship with the public is that they expect something unexpected from me.”

If the unexpected is what Little Monsters have come to expect, there is no doubt they’re happy. In the past few months, the “Yoü and I” singer has been a veritable chameleon, switching from platinum to sherbet-colored coifs and even genders.

At the MTV Video Music Awards, for instance, Gaga spent the evening as her male alter-ego Jo Calderone.

The magazine hits newsstands Sept. 27.
