Anticipation was high for this Fall/Winter 2011 RTW runway show at Paris Fashion Week, namely due to the fact that Lady Gaga, close friend of Mugler’s designer Nicola Formichetti, was rumoured to walk the runway. The rumours were correct, and The Fame Monster closed the show with a bang.
However, Formichetti didn’t need Gaga to make his runway show a success. The vampy models did justice to his bold, intricate and sometimes vulgar designs. These two bodysuits encompass two design elements that could in fact speak for his entire collection: skin-tight and sheer. He uses the popular cheetah print in black, and combines it with fur sleeves to create a truly animalistic look. Perhaps at next year’s Grammy Awards, Nicki Minaj will arrive on the red carpet in a sleek Mugler cheetah-printed bodysuit– a step up from the Givenchy disaster she showed up in this year.
