LADY LUCK: Nicola Formichetti, the new creative director at the Thierry Mugler fashion house and stylist to Lady Gaga, has tapped the pop sensation to create an exclusive soundtrack for his men’s wear show in Paris on Wednesday.

 

He told WWD that Gaga would be "musical director" for the show, among the most anticipated debuts of Men's Fashion Week, which runs through Jan. 23 in the French capital. Word has it she will remix a never-heard track from her forthcoming album, due out in May.

 

Formichetti, also an editor and consultant, joined the Paris-based fashion and fragrance firm last September, overseeing two newly engaged designers: Sébastien Peigné, a 10-year veteran of Balenciaga, for women's wear; and Romain Kremer, who has shown experimental looks under his fledgling Paris label since 2005, for men's.

 

An Internet-savvy dynamo, Formichetti has been planting teaser images online ahead of the men's show, depicting a model coated in black latex and wearing a black biker jacket and spiked metal helmet.
