Editor, consultant and stylist Nicola Formichetti will be adding a new title before his name. The man behind Lady Gaga’s most fashion forward outfits has been named the new creative director of avant-garde fashion label Thierry Mugler.

“Thierry Mugler is about the power of glamour and walking straight into the future,” Formichetti told WWD. “He fused pop and high fashion, told a story in style and combined fantasy with reality. My approach is personal and always very eclectic. I’d like to find new ways for a luxury brand such as Thierry Mugler to excite people.”
