Mugler RTW Spring 2012 - Paris Fashion Week , A Science Fiction-Tinged Sea of Beige and White

Last season Lady Gaga walked the runway for  Nicola Formichetti's first womenswear show for Mugler.
This season the never stop to impress me Mother Monster Gaga created a short film by Inez Van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin in witch she sang “I am Mugler woman, don’t fuck with me, don’t fuck with Mugler. Do you want to anger Mugler woman? She will eat you,” for the designer to show her ongoing support.

The collection began as a science fiction-tinged sea of beige and white body-conscious shapes with a bit of green with curved, asymmetric cuts and cutouts, with jackets and skirts that were short in front and long in the back,
all-in-one cape hybrids with cut-outs, dresses that curved round the bust, sequin-glitter smeared jeans and black leather trousers and coats that had more than a hint of Halloween about them towards the end.
