W Magazine Misquotes Nicola Formichetti & He's Pissed!

Filed under: ModelsW MagazineThierry MuglerV Magazine


Nicola Formichetti is fuming mad over W magazine misquoting him in their July issue.

The quote in question has to do with the Mugler creative director not wanting to work with fat people, which couldn't be further from the truth.

Here's the exact excerpt:

"I was only used to dressing models and skinny kids and I turned up and it was, like, three fat guys. I just left. That was the last time I tried to work with fat people. I think one of them was Ali G’s brother. It was so ghetto.”

After finding this out, Nicola set the record straight on Facebook by posting pictures from various photo shoots including V magazine's plus-size issue, which he styled.

Some of the captions read:

i know i should just leave it but…i really hate when writers just write whatever they want… "i dont work with fat people…" why would someone say such a thing?!

you dont need to be skinny to look gorgeous!!! heres another favourite picture i created for v magazine. dont believe everything you read on line please…

i always worked with different body types. beauitful sammy for dazed with mariano vivanco GOD MAKES NO MISTAKES -AMEN FASHION

dont believe all what you read on line..heres another favorite photo i created with beautiful scottee scottee for dazed. no matter if you are fat, skinny or whatever, we're all born this way.

Nicola Formichetti Talks Dressing Miss GaGa

Lady GaGa's stylist and Mugler's main man Nicola Formichetti is featured in the July issue of W magazine!

In his exclusive feature, Nicola dishes on how he got to where he is today.

Here are some HIGHlights:

On meeting GaGa for the first time:

"She arrived fully dressed, in hair and makeup, wearing shoulder pads and this leather dress and heels and shades—at 8 a.m. on the beach. I was going, This bitch is crazy! She is the real deal. We fell in love with each other, totally. It felt really organic."

On being fired after styling a D&G fashion show:

"I had no idea what I was doing. I didn’t know I was supposed to Polaroid everything. I was calling friends, saying, ‘What do I do?’ So I just sort of put the stuff together and created this look that I thought was the coolest thing ever. And then after the show I got fired straightaway. I was so shocked! I found out later that this was supposed to be their show—not the Nicola show. It was supposed to be a collaboration."

On conquering his fears with therapy:

"I had this incredible fear of darkness, and [my therapist] helped me completely get rid of it. I had the same thing with women. I was always more of a men’s wear stylist; it felt so natural. I wanted to make men look cool because that’s the way I dress. But he said, ‘Your true passion is women’s fashion.’ He made me remember how, when I was young, I was always drawing female characters and dresses. My mom was my muse—she would buy me Italian Vogue. I was this little fashion boy. Then it became that whole thing of not wanting to be too gay, so I had to try to become an architect and do something more proper. He helped me get rid of that, and a couple months later I met Gaga."

On GaGa convincing him to take the job as Mugler's creative director:

"She was like, ‘What the fuck? Hello?! There’s not even a question here, you’re doing it!’"

What an incredible story!

Vogue Brazil really loves Gisele Bundchen.

And to prove their undying love for the Brazilian supermodel, they're giving her 4 covers (5 if you count the subscriber's issue) for the month of July.

A little much, no?

Irina Shayk Covers Harper's Bazaar Mexico — Fully Clothed!


You've come a long way baby!

Sports Illustrated cover girl Irina Shayk did a 180 for the July issue of Harper's Bazaar Mexico.

Rather than posing scantily clad, the Russian model is looking posh in a white Victoria Beckham Collection bell dress and fierce Lady GaGa-esque makeup.

We like this side of Irina! It's so refreshing and proves she's not just a one trick pony.

ASkars Likes His Women In Twos


At least he does in the latest issue of Vogue.

A dapper looking Alexander Skarsgard has found himself in the middle of a love triangle in the magazine's July issue.

The film noir spread was styled by Vogue's fashion editor Grace Coddington and stars Lara Stone as the femme fatale and Frida Gustavsson as the other woman.

We're loving this ed! The styling is spot on and of course, Alexander looks HAWT!
