‘She continued, Over the years me, him and Kollin created even more fashion moments but nothing tops being able to finally meet him in person last year in Paris at his museum exhibit. 

‘It’s so crazy because I was second-guessing if I should go the whole time leading up to that trip. I had just given birth to my son like three weeks prior and wasn’t feeling 100% like myself but something in my spirit kept saying ‘GO.’ 

Maybe God knew that if I didn’t go then I may have never had the opportunity to thank him for everything he did and the doors he opened for me.

‘Mr. Mugler was still putting his foot on necks at 73 years old!!! A true inspiration for all of us.

‘Rest in Paradise Manfred Thierry Mugler 

❤️, Cardi’

The couture piece that the Bojack Yellow hitmaker referenced was vintage 1995 Thierry couture.

In one of her most unforgettable red carpet moments, Cardi stunned in the pink duchess satin and black velvet ‘Venus’ sheath dress over a nude semi-sheer embellished bodysuit. 

In 2019, Cardi’s longtime stylist Kollin Carter told WWD that it took him months get the piece as the fashion house had only ever opened its archives once for a celebrity when Mugler served as the creative director for Beyonce’s 2009 I Am…World tour.

Cardi’s red carpet ensemble was one of the three looks that she wore from Mugler’s archives at the 2019 Grammys.

When Cardi took the stage to accept her Grammy for Best Rap Album, she sported a fringed white crepe shawl dress with matching fringe gloves from Mugler’s 1997 ‘Les Insectes’ couture show. 

And at the 2020 Grammys, Cardi was decked out in a sheer nude Mugler dress with crystal-embellished stripes and floor length sleeves when she attended the show with her husband Offset.

‘Just the name Thierry Mugler…it was always a dream of mine to get a hold of archive pieces from him. He was one of my favorite designers ever since I fell in love with fashion,’ Kollin told WWD.      

In addition to Cardi, Kim Kardashian, Lady Gaga and David Bowie are among those who have turned heads in his avant garde looks. 

Mugler’s official Instagram page confirmed his passing Sunday night at the age of 73.   

‘#RIP We are devastated to announce the passing of Mr Manfred Thierry Mugler on Sunday January 23rd 2022,’ the post read. ‘May his soul Rest In Peace.’

His agent confirmed the designer had died of ‘natural causes’, adding he had been due to announce new collaborations early this week. 

Mugler, who launched his eponymous fashion brand in the 1970s, suffered multiple serious injuries in recent years including a car crash and gym accident that required plastic surgery and left him almost unrecognizable.

Tributes have poured in from friends and colleagues including model Bella Hadid, Duran Duran’s Nick Rhodes and singer Diana Ross.

Born Manfred Thierry Mugler on December 21, 1948 in Strasbourg, France, the designer initially studied and performed ballet but found more success with his fashion designs. 

He created his own clothes from a young age, adapting items bought at nearby flea markets, before moving to Paris to become a freelance stylist.  

'#RIP We are devastated to announce the passing of Mr Manfred Thierry Mugler on Sunday January 23rd 2022,' a social media post announcing his death read. 'May his soul Rest In Peace.'

Despite seemingly retiring from fashion’s frontlines in the early 2000s, Mugler continued to impact culture and worked with Beyonce on her ‘I am…’ world tour.

He never truly put down his tape measure and fabrics – having come out of retirement in 2019 to dress Kardashian for the Met Gala, he was said to be working on new collaborations at the time of his death. 

‘Today’s fashion shows are a continuation of what Mugler invented. The collections were pretexts for fashion shows,’ said Didier Grumbach, former CEO of Thierry Mugler. 

Other famous names dressed by the Frenchman include everyone from icons like David Bowie, George Michael, Cindy Crawford and Sharon Stone to modern stars like Cardi B, Katy Perry, Rihanna and Bella Hadid.

His impact continued even in the week prior to his death, as Twitter obsessed over Alexa Demie’s character Euphoria Maddie seen trying on one of Mugler’s dresses in an episode that aired on January 16.   

He made his name largely in the 1980s and early 90s, with his designs used everywhere from the runway to stage shows and even music videos such as George Michael’s 1992 hit ‘Too Funky.’   

According to Vulture, Mugler ‘was best known for his sculptural use of tailoring. He became famous internationally for his broad-shouldered, 40’s-inspired women’s suits and highly themed fashion shows.’

He retired from fashion in 2002 before his brand was set to be shut down, but remained an influence on fashion for the next two decades.
