Designer Manfred Thierry Mugler Dead at 73: Beyonce and More Stars React .
Manfred Thierry Mugler died at age 73, according to a statement shared on the fashion designer’s official social media accounts on Sunday, January 23. Mugler’s team shared an image of a plain black box via Instagram. “We are devastated to announce the passing of Mr Manfred Thierry Mugler on Sunday January 23rd 2022. May his soul Rest In Peace,” the caption read. The announcement was also made in French. A cause of death was not immediately announced. The designer was born in Strasbourg, France, in December 1948 and started his career in fashion in his early twenties. He rose to international success in the ’80s and ’90s, and despite retiring from the Mugler brand in 2003, he continued to be influential until his death. Mugler was an artistic director for Beyoncé in 2009, designing costumes for her I Am… World Tour. “Rest in peace,” read a short statement on the 40-year-old’s official website alongside a black-and-white snap of her late colleague. The fashion legend continued to work with pop culture icons, including Lady Gaga and Cardi B, throughout his life. He worked extensively with Kim Kardashian, coming out of retirement to design the reality star’s iconic “wet” dress at the 2019 Met Gala for House of Mugler. The look was inspired by the Sophia Loren in 1957’s Boy on a Dolphin. “This is the first time in 20 years Mr. Mugler has designed for the House of Mugler,” Kardashian, now 41, told Vogue at the May 2019 event.
