What happens when Lady Gaga‘s outrageous outfits meet Beyonce‘s Sasha Fierce looks? A truly diva-worthy fashion house! Nicola Formichetti — stylist to Lady Gaga and fashion director of Japanese Men’s Vogue — has been named creative director for Thierry Mugler. The Parisian designer, who was responsible for creating Beyonce’s bootylicious on-tour looks, has tapped the 33-year-old stylist to head both their women’s and menswear ready-to-wear labels. “Thierry Mugler is about the power of glamour and walking straight into the future. He’s been a god for successive generations in the fashion industry,” says Nicola, who will make his runway debut showing the fashion house’s fall/winter 2011/12 collections. “He fused pop and high fashion, told a story in style and combined fantasy with reality. My approach is always very eclectic. I’d like to find new ways for a luxury brand such as Thierry Mugler to excite people.” Nicola has never ceased to amaze us with what he comes up with for Lady Gaga, including at last night’s VMAs — and we can hardly wait to see what he brings the famously daring French house. –Jessie Goldberg
