Extremely Edgy New Diesel Campaign Features Tattooed Woman Wearing A Niqab

Today, in stunt casting: Diesel has an extremely provocative new campaign anchored by the slogan, I Am Not What I Appear To Be. In order to achieve the very sexy levels of provocation he was after, the brand’s equally-sexy-and-boundary-pushing new creative director Nichola Formichetti (above) cast “real people”/non-models and people from the internet (the realest people).

One of them happens to be wearing a niqab–but a denim one, for that extra rock’n roll grit. More »

Kim Kardashian Gets Styled By Nicola Formichetti, Still Looks Like A Kardashian In Elle

Kim Kardashian Gets Styled By Nicola Formichetti, Still Looks Like A Kardashian In Elle

Just because Kim Kardashian is gestating a baby doesn’t mean she’s going to get fat or take any time off from the spotlight. For the March issue of Elle US, a lightly pregnant Kim Kardashian got all done up by none other than Nicola Formichetti, who is best known for being Lady Gaga‘s stylist. While some of the outfits he put her in were interesting, strangely constructed couture, he couldn’t resist including at least a couple of Kim’s more “iconic” looks in there.

First we had Thierry Mugler creative director Nicola Formichetti tell a charming anecdote about the “last time [he] tried to work with fat people” and now we have notorious class-act Nik Richie filing a post over at his website TheDirty entitled “Looks Like They Forgot To Photoshop Kate Upton.” The post is easy to find on Google if you need proof, but the substance of it is this: Richie is asked about Upton’s success, specifically in light of her recent spot for Sobe. The question goes like this: More »

Lady Gaga’s Stylist Nicola Formichetti Won’t Work With Fat People

Lady Gaga's Stylist Nicola Formichetti Won't Work With Fat People

Thierry Mugler’s creative director (who is probably much more famous stateside as the Man Who Dresses Lady Gaga) just made a statement he’ll hopefully regret soon to W. Formichetti described styling a rock band and how it was the last time he worked with fat people. He didn’t offer much insight into why working with “three fat guys” was “so ghetto” but apparently it was way less fun and glamorous than working with models and non-fat people. Brace yourselves.
