One of the biggest names in today's fashion, Nicola Formichetti is a force to be reckoned with. Formichetti is the openly gay Italian-Japanese artistic director for Diesel. He also has Lady Gaga on speed dial — Formichetti is responsible for Mother Monster's "meat dress" that she infamously wore to the 2010 MTV Video Music Awards. Collaborating with then-newcomer Gaga launched him into the world of high fashion, and the two have collaborated several times since. Aside from putting Diesel back on the map, Formichetti is the fashion director of Vogue Hommes Japan, and is the fashion director for the clothing brand Uniqlo. In other words, he can do everything and look perfect doing it. Follow Out for updates on the emerging fashion icon.
