Lady Gaga to Walk in Mugler Fashion Show, Debut New Track


Lady Gaga will be walking in tomorrow's Thierry Mugler fashion show tomorrow, debuting a new track called "Government Hooker". Gaga's stylist Nicola Formichetti is the label's creative director.

Sportrait: Oscar Pistorius


Double-amputee sprinter Oscar Pistorius is the new face (and body) of A*Men fragrance by Thierry Mugler.

Writes the label: "Born in Johannesburg in 1986, the new face of A*Men became a world class sprinter with carbon fiber artificial limbs. After losing his legs at eleven months old, he learned a different way of mastering balance and sublimated his disability through competition. After winning several medals at the 2004 Paralympic Games in Athens, he became triple world record holder and triple Paralympic Champion in the 100, 200 and 400 meter races."

It features Genest, aka Rico, peeling off slick black paint to reveal his impressive body art and also dancing in a strands of pearls to Gaga's infectious house music. Gaga remixed the song specifically for the occasion. It is a track from her new album, 'Born This Way,' which is set to be released in May."

One more shot, AFTER THE JUMP...

interview writes: "The line is titled 'Anatomy of Change,' and the first photo is eerie and rife with references: the angle, pose, and features of the model call to mind a Greek warrior, while the shiny gloves and leather jacket are unmistakably modern."

In related news, Michael Musto reports on Gaga's new video: "I hear Gaga's people were at Alannah Starr's transsexual party earlier this evening, rounding up girls to be in the lady's video, shooting in NYC next week."
