Mugler love?

(Lady Gaga. "Born This Way".)

Nicola Formichetti debuted his first womenswear for MUGLER (renamed from Thierry Mugler). With Lady Gaga as the music director for his menswear show, and now as runway model for the womenswear show. This was definitely a well anticipated show. And what more, a big fashion force collaborating with a big fashion house.... an entertaining "show" was guaranteed.
Choosing Lady Gaga to debut as a runway model for Mugler seems perfect, as the brands design aesthetic and noted use of non-conventional fabrics (latex, fur and sheer fabric), and gothic influences clearly favoured the pop icon.
Also she has previously worn Thierry Mugler's designs, which includes the pieces in her music video "Paparazzi". 

Back to the collection, the exaggerated shoulders and the sleek tailored looks reminisced back to the 80s for me. A touch of goth, yet glamourous aesthetic definitely hit the notes of the brand image for me. 
Not all the looks work for me; in particular the one Jessica Stam models.
But I do love the sheer/latex pieces, and the nude/skin coloured tones used. Here's some of my favourite looks from the womenswear show.
