{iStyle} Lady Gaga Makes Haute Music with Mugler

She’s already conquered the United States– so why not broaden her reign internationally?

Known for her outrageous fashion sense and beyond stellar musical talent, everybody’s favorite Lady finally gave fans a chance to score the best of both worlds.

The ever-risque Lady Gaga gave her little monsters a sneak peek of her latest single – remixed of course – off of her upcoming album Born This Way.

The songstress premiered the remixed track, which she specifically tailored for a House of Mugler fashion show, in Paris on Wednesday.

Gaga then offically released the track today, combined with footage from the actual French runway.

Why Thierry Mugler’s line, you ask?

Well it just so happens that the French brand’s new creative director, Nicolas Formichetti, is Gaga’s personal stylist.

In a recent piece from USA Today, Gaga raved about Formichetti,

I love him, my friend the genius, my collaborator, more than any piece of clothing or closet I possess.”

In classic Gaga fashion, she then joked,

but don’t tell him I said that…He picked them all out!”

The House of Mugler made it’s decision official, by naming Gaga the musical director for their presentation of the label’s Paris menswear collection. Excited to share her newfound role, with her little monsters, Gaga tweeted the news, early this week.

I’m the musical director for the MUGLER fashion show,”

she told her loyal fans.

I’m remixing/previewing a record on Born This Way, tailored for the show + garments.”

The remix is said to be set to a brief Mugler-inspired fashion film directed by fashion photographer Mariano Vivanco, which features the oober-tatted up, “zombie boy” model Rick Genest– skeleton ink and all.

The news acts as the latest tease and strategic buzz surrounding the eagerly awaited album, which slated to come out this spring, on May 23.

Just for the record, this isn’t the first time Gaga’s taken advantage of a Paris runway to launch new music– the dynamic popstar premiered “Bad Romance” at Alexander McQueen’s show in 2009.

As for the fashions themselves, the Fall/Winter 2011 Ready-to-Wear Menswear Collection made Paris Fashion Week proud.

Thierry Mugler, this house’s iconic namesake, has passed down the label’s crown and currently, has settled into his second calling, designing wardrobe pieces for Beyoncé’s world tour. The collection itself, definitely embraced this changing of the guard.

As soon as the lights dimmed, the parade of bitter, nearly-scowling men, took to the catwalk amidst hair matted with grease and oil, and even a few whose faces had been plastered with latex.

The pieces themselves very much resembled this new era of Mugler– while still incorporating particular signature trends, seen throughout previous house collections.

From the strong shoulders and the sheared lapels, similar of the original talent remained strong.

But the colors themselves were much more toned down and almost sinister. Formichetti’s fabrics – especially the man-made neoprene, plastic, nylon, and latex -highly textured and the various silhouettes that slicked down the runway alternated back and forth between chillingly skin tight to a much more baggy, bulky look.

All in all, it was a fabulous night that combined both fashion and music, America and Europe and most importantly of all, showcased superior levels of raw creativity and talent.
