Nicola Formichetti: Shirtless for Varón Magazine!

Nicola Formichetti: Shirtless for Varón Magazine!

Nicola Formichetti styles himself in Mugler autumn/winter 2011 collection for the fourth cover of Varón, on stands worldwide September 8.

Here’s what Lady Gaga‘s stylist shared with the mag:

On being accused of being a copycat designer/stylist: “In short, no, we don’t have other people’s looks on the wall and we don’t try to copy anyone. That would be a stupid thing to do, no? Do people really think Gaga would go and look at a music video and say, ‘That’s a cool video, let’s redo that’? People only think that because that’s the only reference they have.”

On public criticism: “I get really sad when people judge me and think I’m snobby because of stuff they read on the internet, like stuff about old people or fat people that’s taken completely out of context. It gets blown out of proportion. It’s sad but I have to keep moving, and keep believing in what I’m doing.”

On French fashion designer Thierry Mugler: “For me he’s like God, you know? So I don’t really wanna… I don’t really want to know what he thinks [of me as Mugler creative director]. Of course I’d like for him to love it, but I don’t really want to… For me he’s someone so high, but I’m not here to please him. If he doesn’t like it, it would make me sad but he’s not why I decided to take the job. The reason I changed the name to Mugler instead of Thierry Mugler was to make it less personal and more of a brand as opposed to a French couturier. I want it to become a global brand.”

    I had no idea Lady Gagag’s stylist is the creative director Thierry Mugler. No wonder that fashion house sucks nowadays.

    All fluff no substance. Just like his muse.

    Thierry Mugler got famous for turning parking cones into bras. His fashion house died shortly thereafter because they poked the eyes out of his audience.
