Lady Gaga Hits the Run Way for Mugler

Believe it or not, Lady Gaga once had trouble getting any designers to lend her clothes. So much trouble in fact that she had her own knockoff-ish pieces made for the stage. That changed around the time Nicola Formichetti styled her for the September 2009 cover of V Magazine. She quickly owned the must-dress list. And now — as the muse for Formichetti’s new vision for Thierry Mugler — she’s come full circle.  [Paris Report | Runway as Nightclub at Mugler and Pugh By JACOB BROWN | March 3, 2011, 10:50 am]

Nicola Formichetti brought the Thierry Mugler women's collection roaring back to the runway Wednesday night, with Lady Gaga in long blond ponytails and giant platforms modeling for her stylist/collaborator, and the show streaming live on Facebook.   Formachetti's designs -- tailored jackets and dresses with extreme "Metropolis" shoulders, latex pants and catsuits -- were not-too-distant cousins of Mugler's fierce-feminine looks from the '80s and '90s.

According to Booth Moore reporting for the L.A. Times "Gaga took to the modeling gig like she'd been doing it all her life, stepping onto the runway from the front of the house, puffing on a cigarette and grinding on a column, as her new single, 'Government Hooker,' played on the soundtrack."

There is also a fabulous interview with Lady Gaga and Nicola Formichetti by Suzy Menkes, unfortunately the NY Times won't allow the video to be embedded so here are the links need to watch it.
