There is a man responsible for dressing mega popstar Lady Gaga in her famous meat dress. He has never studied fashion design, but currently in his early 30′s, he has now become the head of a luxury brand. He is none other than French Fashion House MUGLER‘s creative director and Lady Gaga’s stylist, Nicola Formichetti. During a recent interview, Formichetti admitted to being a fan of K-Pop.

Formichetti is half Asian with a Japanese mother and an Italian father. When asked which side he feels closer to, he answered, “I was born in Shizuoka, Japan and grew up in Tokyo. I went to high school in Rome, and lived in London for ten years after that. I felt like an outsider growing up, but I think it’s helped me build an ability to blend different things. I look young for being 35, thanks to my Asian blood (laughs).”

The fashionista also admitted to being a huge fan of Korean pop music. “I am a huge fan of together, and the spicy kick was the greatest. If I were ever invited to Seoul’s Fashion Week, I would love to go. I want to work on a new Lady Gaga outfit with Korean designers, and I also want to learn Korean.”

cid:20120521_2ne1_comeback.jpg

Minzy, Sandara, Bom, and CL of girl group 2NE1 will be returning with a new album!

A representative from 2NE1′s agency YG Entertainment informed Star News on May 21st, “2NE1 will be releasing a new Korean album around the middle of June. 2NE1 and their producer Teddy have completed 7 amazing new songs. Once the new album drops, the girls will also be promoting on various programs.”

YG Entertainment added, “We have not decided if the new 2NE1 album will be a full-length or a mini-album.”

This new album will be the first to be released since the girls dropped ‘2NE1 2nd Mini Album‘ last July. Tracks “Dont Cry“, “Lonely“, “I Am The Best“, “Hate U“, “Ugly“, and more from that album were all major hits that climbed the charts. Because many of their tracks from each of their albums are quick to become the new trends, this new album is drawing much anticipation from fans everywhere.

After the album drops, the girls will immediately hold an independent concert in Korea. Fans are excited for their new album as well as the concert, as the girls have been primarily focusing on their Japanese tour, and it will be the first time in a while Korean fans will get to see the girls 2NE1 up close.

We will officially announce the concert once everything is organized,” YG added. “We hope that the new 2NE1 release and the concert will help everyone enjoy this summer season.”
