Rick Genest

I admire the way Nicola Formichetti took a bit of a risk making Rick Genst his "muse" for his upcoming collection for Mugler, or at least admitting he took inspiration from his appearance/persona/external perception of him. Admit is the wrong word to use there; he made no secret of the fact that this beautifully tattooed man was a turning point for an entire collection. 

I've had a weird fascination with this guy over the past few days. After reading that Nicola tracked him down through Facebook, I too, tracked him down through Facebook and was very close to adding him.

The top photo I've included is my favorite from this selection I found; I think it's really beautiful in a weird way. 

Bare with me as you read this, but I think that in some of the photos he manages to look almost delicate, but in that photo where he's got the black coat on, he looks like he's about to go f'ck sh't up, and he's not letting nobody get in his way.

I'd probably get out the way for him like.

I'm bang into the way one guy can change the direction of a brand.
