Lady Gaga Is Creating A Soundtrack For Thierry Mugler
WWD reports that Gaga will add the title “musical director” to her resume when she debuts an exclusive remix of a song we haven’t even heard yet (from her new album Born This Way) in Paris on Wednesday. So the show’s audience will be the first to experience two hotly anticipated debuts — Gaga fans everywhere are cringing with anticipation for her album to drop in May, and the fashion world is curious to see just what Formichetti has been doing since he took the reins at the embattled label last September.
Formichetti is perhaps most famous for helping Gaga create some of the strangest, most fashion forward outfits in recent memory (let’s all say it together now: “Meat dress”), but he also worked as a stylist to other celebrities, including Robert Pattinson and Chloe Sevigny. His editorial work (which he said he planned to continue even with his new responsibilities at Mugler) has been in magazines from Vogue Hommes Japan to Dazed and Confused.
But it’s the work he did for Gaga that got Formichetti the job at Mugler, so we wouldn’t be surprised to see a little of her eccentricity in his ready-to-wear collections. He’s alread posted some teasers for the men’s collection, called “Anatomy Of Change,” and eccentric doesn’t even begin to describe what we’ll see coming down his runway this week.
