Thierry Mugler Transforms Himself Into A Monster

Though trained as a ballet dancer, retired French fashion designer Thierry Mugler‘s been spending his time off weight training. And with frightening results.

As Page Six reported last week, 59-year old Mugler’s transforming himself into a monstrous, malformed figure known as Manfred Mugler. Unlike Thierry Mugler, who defined 80’s style with wider-than-wide shoulders and over-the-top collars, Manfred Mugler’s a hulking figure more closely resembling beast than man. One friend comments on Mugler:

He’s been incommunicado since he closed his couture house. What he’s done to his body is totally scary. He started out as a classical ballet dancer. Now he looks like Arnold Schwarzenegger in his prime.

Hearing this news, we can’t help but remember that Mugler (pictured with Jerry Hall) once used Jeff Stryker as a runway model.

World of Wonder picked up on the story and got a picture of the new-and-hardly improved Mugler. Always generous, they passed the horrific image on to us and we’re sharing it with you.

Careful, though, it ain’t safe for work. Or eyes…

    Are you even sure that’s the same guy? The cock looks huge but it also looks pumped. Ans what the hell happened to his nose?

  • thatguyfromboston

    ah, the joys of ‘roiding out! ugh

  • hughman

    oh please. he just looks like every other weho/chelsea gym bunny, meaning there’s nothing “shocking” or “gross” about him. he’s 59 for god’s sake! good for him.

  • Paul Raposo

    Why did he stop designing?

    As for his new body; like hughman said, he’s 59 and in pretty good shape. Let’s hope he lives long enough to enjoy his new body.

  • Gregg

    “pretty good shape”??? ugh! His body looks disgusting – I don’t care if he’s 59 or 19. Roids lead to this over-pumped, slightly deformed pseudo-masculinity. Gross.

    And, Dear god – shaved pubes?!?!? Just stop!

  • momo

    I am new to this site and this picture has scared me so much that it is now my favorite site.

  • Paul Raposo

    I said he was in pretty good shape. I didn’t say that he was pretty 8^)

  • Stanley

    I think he looks good – not just for his age – but for any age…

    ps. I’m a photo editor and could have made it look more natural… the editing on this photo is was badly done.

  • james

    i dont understand, how the photo editing was ‘badly done’, it looks like an unretouched photo of someone who has time on their hands and has got it little swept away with their look, good luck to him, but Thierry!! those flip flops??

  • uwe

    thierry looks like an made in usa- comic hero!
    too much- uff….
    sometimes less is more.

  • Meriadec

    Those flip flops ! OUhahaha, what a bad taste :o)))))) + a sad quasimodo face…
    Poor guy.

  • larbi

    je suis fou de cette homme … … et sa transformation est superbe woooof

  • Bill

    I think he looks great. GO MANFRED!!!! If you are ever in NJ/NY and you need a worshipper, THAT IS ME. YOU LOOK GREAT! YOUR COCK LOOKS DELICIOUS and I would not turn you away from my front door, or BACK DOOR. LOL

  • Peter

    I have known Manfred for several years. Sure he has changed, but don’t we all/ i think he is one hot stud – he can make my day (or night)anytime!

  • Joe

    Okay whatever- his muscles look good, his muscle look bad – why has no one mentioned that CHEESY mustache???????? His facial hair looks like a cheap porn actor from the 70’s.

  • KittenLikkin

    Never mind his turning into a Tom of Finland character…what I want to know is who is that sad looking tranny behind him in the pic with Jerry Hall? Somebody give her a drink and cheer the hoe up!

  • Jordan

    I was the “sad” looking “tranny” (in fact a model made-up for the show btw ), as for Thierry, whatever he’s done is none of your little fags’ business.

  • Jordan

    Hoping this comment will close the acerbic critics of Thierry…

  • marcelo

    R u kidding me,I love french pumped cock I will eat it with Ketchup! U go girl looking better than Joan Rivers! Well maybe!

  • marcelo

    He doesn’t look like a porn star from the 70’s he looks like a 70 year old porn star!

  • d-lite

    He looks like Juggernaut from X-men!

  • peri chancellor

    Please, flip-flops with SOCKS … forget the rest, that’s the worst faux-pas.

  • The Fame

    He would never wear SOCKS with SANDALS

  • Robert


    I agree; I think he’s hot. I wish my body could transform like that. You’re lucky to know him. I hear that he’s one hell of a nice guy in addition to being hot daddy dick.

  • vernonvanderbilt

    Jesus fucking christ. I didn’t need to see that. More power to him if that’s what he wants from himself, but Queerty, why didn’t you two-page this one like you do with your other click-whoring posts?

  • Facka

    I guess most hate comments come from bitchy, picky, young fags who feel superior because of their pedo-magnet look.

  • uwe

    es ist unglaublich, was wachstumshormone ausmachen koennen. thierry war ein so toller mann- schade.
    wenn es ihm gefaellt, ist es ok.
    greetings from Berlin :-)

  • Porter

    he was handsome then and hot now. i think he looks great then and now. whatever happened to “if you don’t have anything nice to say don’t say anything at all”? if it’s not your thing no biggie but to express horror at someone who has worked hard on their body is not nice. his physique is that of a man half his age.

  • Awesome

    Have seen him and chatted – he looks fucking great and is pursuing his fantasy. Something most can’t do, especially people who criticize this.

  • Jacob

    I don’t think he needed to do this. He looked beautiful as he was. If he hadn’t done that he would still look as amazing as he did twenty years ago, because let’s face it, he never looked like he aged. The worst things in this shot are the flip flops, body and dick. (not because it’s massive, because it’s uncircumcised! i love a massive cock but uncircumcised dicks are a turn off.)

  • lll1992

    i wish I could “hang” with him and i am a girl – i think he is hot….i would rock his world.

  • JDR

    This is not him. I wonder why someone would post this picture as Thierry’s when it is obviously another guy. Thierry did not have a nose job or an eyebrow lift. And Thierry wearing sandals with socks on at home?

  • TTT

    I hate 2 disappoint you, but thats really him. He acknowledges the pic in several articles. He says a disgruntled employee stole the pics off of his hard drive. And if u you google him with Beyonce is def the same guy. He is really into body modification and says he did it so he wouldnt be recognized. And he actually says his only regret about the pics is Shower sandals. Google NY Times article Manfred Mugler his new name.
