After much anticipation, buzz and heavy internet promotion, Nicola Formichetti's debut womenswear collection for Mugler Fall 2011 finally happened yesterday. The who-is-who of fashion world was in the front row and many more watching the runway stream live on Mugler's Facebook page. Besides directing it musically, Lady Gaga also walked the runway for two looks - doing her best impersonating a 90's supermodel.
As far as the clothes go, I cannot help but feel a bit disappointed. With so much PR, one would expect the debut collection looks to be ... more.

I'm absolutely delighted to see looks by Haider Ackermann, Alexander McQueen, Hussein Chalayan and Louis Vuitton in the editorial, with Ackermann getting the cover.
Women probably shouldn't say things like this about other women, but you really can't photoshop someone pretty, can you? Vogue cleaned her up and dressed her up, but even they couldn't infuse grace, poise, allure or any other type of appealing quality into her blank face.
I choose to concentrate on the positive though ...
