Lady Gaga's butt inspired new Thierry Mugler handbag line
Creative director Nichola Formichetti tells Women's Wear Daily that his new line was inspired by Gaga's butt -- but she's not aware that her behind was the muse for the handbags, clutches and sportswear.

"She doesn't know yet," he says. "It has a little bit of punk rock feeling but it's still quite chic."
Formichetti and Gaga have worked together in the past -- he was her stylist (thank him for a lot of those crazy outfits), and she was one of his runway models for his first Mugler collection.
Gaga posted some head-turning photos of herself in lingerie on her website earlier this week, admitting that she's suffered from eating disorders since she was a teenager and struggles with her body image.
"My boyfriend prefers me curvier, when I eat and am healthy and not so worried about my looks, I'm happy," she says of her supportive man Taylor Kinney. "Happier than I've ever been."
