The show, which was filled with '80s-inspired suits and texture-laden outerwear, also featured a yet-to-be-released Lady Gaga song. The pop star was listed as musical director for the event and specifically remixed a track from her "Born This Way" album, which isn't due out until spring. (But all you little monster fans can hear the track in the form of an exclusive video on StyleList and Mugler.com tomorrow at noon.)
Not surprisingly, Formichetti's universal aim is to support the notion of "fashion without boundaries." And while the overall ensembles -- designed by Romain Kremer -- were a tad extreme (the theme was flawed superhumans, after all) the tailoring was intact.
Lady Gaga may have ruled the airwaves, but it was a skeleton-tattooed model named Rick Genest who stole the show. Rico, as he is known, not only walked the runway but is the subject of the highly anticipated short film.
Given that he is constantly drawing inspiration from fashion's underbelly, it seems that there is no end to Formichetti's omnipotent style powers. We wonder what he'll do in March for the debut of Mugler's women's line.
