Formichetti Muse Gets Massive Makeunder
By Max Berlinger
You may not know the name Rick Genest, but you've certainly seen his face before. The Canadian-born artist (also known as "Zombie Boy" -- how charming) rose to fame when stylist and fashion editor Nicola Formichetti plucked him from relative obscurity and chose him to be the poster boy for MUGLER, the relaunch of Thierry Mugler's label. The reason you may not recognize his mug is that Genest has covered his entire being with copious amounts of ink. But thanks to the wonders of make-up (and a couple of bucks courtesy of make-up line Dermablend), we can see what Genest would look like if he kept away from the tattoo parlor. Turns out he's actually kind of cute, once you strip away the scary body art. Check out the video below to see him go from normal to nutso in a jiffy.
