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
