I have followed fashion stylist Nicola Formichetti's blog for longer than Spencer Alley has existed, and so watched his career skyrocket from admirable but fairly ordinary mainstream success designing photo shoots for fashion magazines to outright superstardom after he became Lady Gaga's executive wardrobe consultant. At the British Fashion Awards just last month Daphne Guinness crowned him Fashion Creator of the Year, and this month Formichetti presented his first runway show as creative director of the Paris couture house of Thierry Mugler. The film of the show seen below was directed by Mariano Vivanco. And the friendly Gaga pitched in with the music.
