Rick Genest is another rising star in the fashion industry. After catching the eye of Nicola Formichetti, the creative director at Thierry Mugler, he was cast for the Fall 2011 Mugler runway show, as well as the embodiment of evil in Lady Gaga's video for "Born This Way." Rick was then photographed by Mariano Vivanco (and styled by Formichetti) for Vogue Hommes Japan. Some sources say that Rick is a male model, and though he walked the Mugler show, he is not signed to an agency and does not consider himself a model. But who knows what will happen once Rick gains even more recognition...Ford contract, holla!
They both inspire me.
