Lady Gaga Unleashed Material from Born This Way at the Paris Fashion Week

Mugler had the hottest soundtrack on the runway at the Paris Fashion Week - January 19-23,  2011. Nicola Formichetti, the new creative director at Mugler, formerly Thierry Mugler Fashion House, and stylist to Lady Gaga tapped the pop sensation to create an exclusive soundtrack for the Fall/Winter 2011/2012 men's reday-to-wear show. Formichetti  told WWD that Gaga would be "musical director" for the show, among the most anticipated debuts of Men's Fashion Week in the French capital. 

Formichetti had been planting teaser images online ahead of the men's show, depicting a model coated in black latex and wearing a black biker jacket and spiked metal helmet.

Formichetti, also an editor and consultant, joined the Paris-based fashion and fragrance firm last September, overseeing two newly engaged designers: Sébastien Peigné, a 10-year veteran of Balenciaga, for women's wear; and Romain Kremer, who has shown experimental looks under his fledgling Paris label since 2005, for men's.  Formichetti styled some of the pop diva’s most famous photos in 2010, including her nearly nude gun-bra cover for Rolling Stone and her lady-in-gray cover for Vanity Fair. 

Formichetti said he’s already created custom Mugler costumes for the pop sensation’s album art, videos and performances ahead of her album release on May 23, and Gaga will likely be more involved in the women’s ready-to-wear line, making its debut on the runway March 1 during Paris Fashion Week
