Word in the inner fashion circle is that the fashion house of Thierry Mugler (not the one in the ballroom circuit) will have a new creative director to replace Rosemary Rodriguez, who left her post at the company three weeks ago. The new man is rumoured to be Nicola Formichetti, who is not just a freelance stylist for Lady Gaga, but also the fashion director for Vogue Hommes Japan, and the creative director for Dazed and Confused Magazine. If the rumours prove to be true, this will mark a renaissance of the house since Mugler's departure in 2003. Everyone will be awaiting to see what Nicola Formichetti for Thierry Mugler will look like. Will he bring avant garde influences from his collaborations with the Haus of Gaga to Mugler? Judging from the styling he has done for Lady Gaga's "Telephone" and "Alejandro" videos we hope to see mind-boggling fashion statements.
