Born on December 21, 1948, in Strasbourg, France, Mugler began his career in fashion in the 1970s and soon became known for his avant-garde looks. His extravagant and dramatic designs have donned some of the biggest names in the entertainment industry over the years, including Cardi B, Lady GaGa, Beyonce, Cindy Crawford, Katy Perry, Rihanna, David Bowie, and Megan Fox. While Mugler left fashion in 2003, he launched his own beauty line that have since dropped some best-selling fragrances such as Angel and Alien. Mugler even stepped out of retirement in 2019 just to design Kim Kardashian’s iconic Met Gala look that year – which was inspired by Sophia Loren in Boy on a Dolphin. She said of the look to People at the time:

“He always, it’s a full vision from, you know, hair to nails to everything. His runway shows were the most legendary and iconic runway shows ever.”
