Lady Gaga X Mugler Runway Video

30 September 2011, 15.03 | Posted in Music, Runway Show, celebrity | No comments »


Here is the official video from the Mugler runway show, held during Paris Fashion Week a couple days back. It includes the Lady Gaga video that kicked off the show, plus some runway looks.  According to press:

“The collection is about emotion and memory and something forming and abstract rather than complete…We concentrated on the idea of the silhouettes.” said Formichetti of the pieces. Seen in the garments were classic tailoring techniques spliced together or cut-away giving the garments a more abstract quality. The pieces looked like “second skin” some pieces were accented by Swarovski crystals.

The fashion itself showed really great progression from Nicola Formichetti’s first collection for the label, which I would never have thought based on the smattering of dismissive reviews I read after the show. It’s becoming clear that the fashion world for the moment is done with Lady Gaga (and we can’t exclude ourselves from that list of folks feeling fatigued by the constant exposure) and is reacting in borderline hostile ways to her mere presence at any event fashion related so one cannot help but wonder if at this point Mugler isn’t walking a fine line between alienating the fashion press versus gaining “Monster” amounts of publicity because of her large and dedicated fan base (though some of them are worn out by her, too!).

The question is who really is responsible for creating the conventional wisdom when it comes to a label’s collection? Are Prada or say Tory Burch seeing fantastic demand because editors have lately oohed and ahhed over their runway presentations? Perhaps that was the case in the past but it seems nowadays they’re an increasingly smaller and less relevant part of the puzzle and the days of dictation from one small, powerful group are fading quickly behind us. The truth is labels are now going direct to their consumers and what becomes of fashion critics and the good and bad of that formula will be is yet to be known.

LadyGagaBazaar (3)

Another cover for Lady Gaga, wearing minimal makeup (all MAC cosmetics)  and a Hussein Chalayan dress in a shoot styled by Nicola Formichetti for Bazaar magazine’s October issue. Gaga is in an interesting spot it seems these days. The fashion world has grown bored with her (albeit temporarily entertained by her feud with Cathy Horyn) and all but her most dedicated Monsters seem less than impressed with her latest musical offerings. Will she find her way out of the current backlash she’s experiencing? Tough call to make, she’s quite the force, though sometimes that’s not enough.Via Bazaar.

Nicola Formichetti For Thierry Mugler ‘Anatomy Of Change’ Runway Info

01 March 2011, 22.29 | Posted in Music, Runway Show, celebrity | No comments »

Six months into his role as creative director of Thierry Mugler, Nicola Formichetti will show his first ready-to-wear women’s collection (he debuted men’s in January) tomorrow during Paris Fashion Week. Titled ”Anatomy of Change,” it will livestream on the Thierry Mugler Facebook page at 3PM EST (9PM CET). The above video is a sort of stylistic preview and is part of a series of images Formichetti has been releasing in the lead up to the show. And the look is also in sync with some of the alien looks sported as of late by Formichetti’s favorite partner in crime, Lady Gaga.  

Gaga will be lending a helping hand at the show by premiering her latest single, which her Monsters are speculating will be “Judas,” a song whose lyrics she released on Twitter last week. It’s not clear whether she will sing live at the show. She debuted a remix of “Born This Way” at the January show, but didn’t perform it live.

[UPDATE: Thecut informs that the Monsters are dead wrong....Gaga will be performing a song titled "Government Hooker," not "Judas." And she'll be walking the show! Will she sing and walk at the same time? We shall soon see.]
