Lady Gaga may occupy four different covers of V Magazine's September issue, but it's Miranda Kerr who steals the show with her steamy fashion editorial. In the issue, which hits newsstands today, Miranda channels Ilona Staller — better known by her stage name, Cicciolina — who is the former wife and muse of famed American artist Jeff Koons. Not only was she married to Jeff for seven years, but the buxom Hungarian-born beauty was also a prominent politician and porn star in Italy for close to three decades. Miranda nails Cicciolina's signature look in the V spread, as her style consisted of bleached blond hair, gauzy, hippie-chic dresses, and girlie flower crowns (which she made cool way before Coachella).
Cicciolina's story is a pretty incredible one: she began a career in pornography in the early 1970s and quickly gained notoriety for her curvaceous figure and, ahem, acting ability. She later penned two tell-all memoirs about her time in the business. By 1987, Cicciolina was elected to the Italian parliament, where she remained for five years. She made headlines after taking office when she extended a sexual peace treaty to Iraqi leader Saddam Hussein, and again in April 2006 when she offered to sleep with Osama Bin Laden to end his reign of terror.
Despite her over-the-top personality and policies, Cicciolina is still considered a living legend, and Miranda Kerr portrays her beautifully. See another photo of Miranda as the notorious porn star, as well as one of Cicciolina herself, after the break.
