Nicola Formichetti brought the Thierry Mugler women’s collection roaring back to the runway Wednesday night, with Lady Gaga in long blond ponytails and giant platforms modeling for her stylist/collaborator, and the show streaming live on Facebook. Formachetti’s designs — tailored jackets and dresses with extreme “Metropolis” shoulders, latex pants and catsuits — were not-too-distant cousins of Mugler’s fierce-feminine looks from the ’80s and ’90s. But, gorgeous as the models were (including Coco Rocha and Jessica Stam in tribal makeup), they weren’t the supermodels of yore. So when Formichetti sent them “vogue-ing” down the runway, ’80s-style, not only did they occasionally look pained, a few of them actually stumbled.
