After it was announced that Lady Gaga's personal stylist Nicola Formichetti was to become creative director of top Parisian fashion house Thierry Mugler, we wondered how the superstar would react. Surely this meant that her creative powerhouse Mr Formichetti would have less time to devote to her crazy-paving designer ensembles ? Would she be hurt? Furious?
Not Gaga. She chose to publicly wish Nicola Formichetti well in this moving statement/declaration of loyalty:
'Blood pumps through Nicola's veins like perfume and cigarettes. His brain throbs with misfit royalty, glamour as punk survival, attitude as liberation, style as revolution. Thierry Mugler has a way with legendary lifestyle and Nicola is just that: Epic Lifestyle, Freakdom, Gorgeous or Die, The "fuck" in future poetry, the street in High-Fashion. Nicola Formichetti is Fashion's Freedom. I love him, my friend the genius, my collaborator, more than any piece of clothing or closet I possess. But don't tell him I said that, he'll die. He picked them all out.'
Hmmmmmm. Quite right, Gaga. But Gaga, who’s going to organise people to run you up your beef and giblet frocks now?
