** WARNING: video nsfw **
nicola formichetti, the mind behind mugler, who is known for transforming relative unknowns into stars (rico, and to some degree lady gaga) has found his latest muse: nomi ruiz, a transgender singer from brooklyn.
in the latest mugler men’s campaign video, she can be spotted vamping on the bed in the bondage scene.
i first knew of nomi from her contributions to hercules & love affair’s debut album, which i loved and the only album i like of theirs really. helping to form the hercules & love affair, led to the formation of her current band, jessica 6. jessica 6 not only did part of the music for the above video, they also did the soundtrack for the show. formichetti also styled nomi for a spread in the forthcoming issue of v magazine
