Rick Genest, AKA “Zombie Boy” is the icon for fashion house Thierry Mugler. The 26 year-old, punk rocker from Canada began his skeletal, tattoo transformation after a bout with depression following his brain tumor surgery. Shortly after that, he was discovered by Nicola Formichetti who happens to be the creative director for Thierry Mugler and Lady Gaga’s stylist. He gained instant notoriety when he appeared in Gaga’s music video, ‘Born This Way.’ His look is intriguing and designers everywhere are vying for his attention. He was recently seen in the front row of the DSquared Fashion Show in Milan. Rumor has it that he’s working on a music project and a contract with Universal.
He may look like a corpse, but this hot zombie can chase me through the night of the living dead anytime.
