I don’t sing the same la-la for Gaga that many of you do.
I just don’t see the brouhaha over her image.
Everyone was all a-twitter about her appearance on the FW11 runway for Nicola Formichetti for Mugler…
Her presence at the show was a distraction from the clothes - to me, anyway.
…but I will take Ms. Mulder for Monsieur Mugler (himself) any day.

Even with her eyes closed, Mulder says a million things with that expression.
For me, the original Mugler label was more about Dada, than Gaga.
Jean Paul Gaultier’s love of art and architecture was obvious, this season. He paid homage to Buckminster Fuller in his Spring 2009 Couture collection.
Now he’s gone ga-ga for Dada, with this beautiful nude gown…

Surreal dressing, indeed.
