Tim Blanks Remembers Mugler’s Epic “Le Cirque” Show



Each fashion season promises a few truly memorable moments (step teams, carousels, and grocery stores come to mind), but some might argue that Thierry Mugler’s 20th anniversary “Le Cirque” show has yet to be beat. Some of Mugler’s favorite girls, including Claudia Schiffer, Jerry Hall, and Naomi Campbell, celebrated his signature “campy extravagance” in what was likely a very expensive, undeniably fabulous spectacle. They smoked cigarettes, struck poses on a multilevel runway, and danced to James Brown’s live rendition of “This Is a Man’s World” with buff boys in thongs. Need we say more? Watch Tim Blanks revisit the show in our latest Throwback Thursdays video, here.
