Lady Gaga On Nicola Formichetti’s Appointment At Thierry Mugler


Last week, Nicola Formichetti (left) was announced as the new creative director of Thierry Mugler. Formichetti styles for just about everyone cool—he was fashion director of Dazed & Confused, and contributing fashion director at Vogue Hommes Japan. But he’s best known as Lady Gaga’s personal stylist, and she’s got something to say for the occasion (no surprise there). Over to you, Gaga:

“Blood pumps through Nicola’s veins like perfume and cigarettes. His brain throbs with misfit royalty, glamour as punk survival, attitude as liberation, style as revolution. Thierry Mugler has a way with legendary lifestyle and Nicola is just that: Epic Lifestyle, Freakdom, Gorgeous or Die, the ‘fuck’ in future poetry, the street in High-Fashion. Nicola Formichetti is Fashion’s Freedom. I love him, my friend the genius, my collaborator, more than any piece of clothing or closet I possess. But don’t tell him I said that, he’ll die. He picked them all out.” —Lady Gaga
