You can always count on being served the unexpected when it comes to Gaga. Today she just put up a video of her adventures in Rio and Columbia, and included a snippet of the original demo version of “Bitch, Don’t Kill My Vibe” (LG Mix) by Kendrick Lamar she featured on. Super smooth and super chill. Check it out (above)!
#PFW: MUGLER SPRING/SUMMER 2013
Once again, Mugler has given us everything we could’ve asked for. Creative Director Nicola Formichetti took it back to the La Thierry archives - referencing past design motifs while incorporating a cool modern twist.
As always, Mugler serves us sleek cuts, pops of color, and the subtle use of unique fabrics (our favorite standout piece is the multicolored latex-esque thermal looking garment). Lady Gaga was in charge of the show’s music and also has a bag from the collection made in honor of her “great ass”. Love! A+!
