First Look: Justin Bieber in Mugler for V Magazine

V Magazine has chosen the one and only Justin Bieber to be the cover boy of its first music issue! Although it doesn’t hit newsstands until later this week, Nicola Formichetti (Lady Gaga‘s style director) has released what looks like to be the cover and spread – and we’re sure no Belieber minds the leak.

In all his pouting glory, Bieber’s sporting a studded leather jacket over a hot black t-shirt by Mugler. Framing his face is an intricate and colorful collage to form the magazine’s signature logo.

The inaugural music edition of V Magazine hits newsstands on January 12, 2012.
