The previous Guinness world record for the largest single edition of a magazine was set by Norwegian travel magazine ZINE travel, which measured 201 cm (6 ft 7 in) wide by 270 (8 ft 10 in) tall.
Guinness World Records also recognized the world record for the Oldest magic magazine, set by Abracadabra, first published on 2 February 1946 in Birmingham, UK.
Lady Gaga can be seen in her latest incarnation as a mermaid on the cover of Visionaire's "larger than life" issue.
Says the publication, "Visionaire broke the Guinness World Record for the largest magazine with LARGER THAN LIFE at 36 x 49.48 inches. Then we shattered our own record with a Deluxe Edition at 57.48 x 79 inches."
At seven-feet tall, Visionaire' s latest issue is the largest magazine ever published, and was launched in New York.
The magazine, which was founded in 1991, chose an arresting image of Gaga as an oil-covered mermaid, shot by Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin.
There is also an image of Karl Lagerfeld, as voyeur, wandering around a stage of out-sized legs and bottoms.
