Nicola Formichetti does it all: He's a fashion director for Lady Gaga, creative director at Mugler, creative fashion director at Uniqlo, fashion director at Vogue Hommes Japan, and sometimes contributor to V magazine and Dazed and Confused. But he's not the only hard worker in the style biz. He says of his friend and client, Lady Gaga, "I've never met anyone who works more than me, and she for sure works more than me, and I work crazy every day." Read on for more quotes on Gaga, and to learn how to get where Nicola is (spoiler: it involves not going to architecture school in London for three years without your parents knowledge).
