Lady Gaga & Nicola Formichetti Make Mugler Video Sizzle
Mar 07, 2011 - by Jessica Lapidos
In a show that had Lady Gagas paw print cemented to the aesthetic, Nicola Formichetti insurrected Mugler with a visual feast. Gaga's gave us a taste of her new single Government Hooker as she made her modeling debut, working her monstrous platforms better than many professional models worked their curvaceous heels. On the live stream (or the luckiest, in Paris) we watched the show in its entirety, with Gaga's new song interspersed with a hopped up version of Born This Way. Now we can watch it in the concise manner the Creative Director envisioned it. Gagalicious video ahead.
Sheer-bodied solid-armed pieces sauntered alongside pleather-cum-latex pants and trenches, surrounded by the sky-high shoulders of the eighties Thierry Mugler. The shoulders that Gaga helped to resurrect. As the looks turned to rubberized armor amongst a show where models became lively sirens, clutching at the wooden column archway, becoming little monster on the runway, the Mugler philosophy came to light: Entertainment.
