Kim Kardashian Reacts to Thierry Mugler’s Death: ‘There’s So Much We Had Planned to Do Together’. The legendary French fashion designer, who famously came out of retirement to create Kim Kardashian’s viral 2019 Met Gala look, died on Sunday at age 73.
Kim Kardashian is mourning the loss of friend and fashion collaborator Manfred Thierry Mugler following the news of his death on Sunday.
The Keeping Up with the Kardashians alum, 41, paid tribute to the late French designer on Instagram Monday, posting a gallery of photos of their outfit collaborations, along with a touching caption.
“Manfred Thierry Mugler 💔 My heart breaks,” Kardashian began the post. “There’s no one like you! Your vision, your transformations, your magic! I am so honored to have known you, spent time with you and be a muse for you.”
Kardashian added that she was still looking forward to more moments with the visionary.
“There was so much more for you to show the world and that we had planned to do together, but you already gave us so much. I will never forget our time together around the world and learning from the master himself on what couture really meant! You always said beauty will save the world – and you really believed it was a better place because of the beauty all around! Thank you for the beauty. I love you so much. My condolences go to Manfred’s family, friends, JB and his incredible team – and everyone who loved him and who’s lives he has touched”.
Kardashian had a close relationship with Mugler, who famously crafted her iconic dripping wet ensemble for the 2019 Met Gala.
“This is the first time in 20 years Mr. Mugler has designed for the House of Mugler. So to come and design this gown for me is such an honor,” Kardashian told Vogue at the time. “This is about eight months in the making … He envisioned me this California girl stepping out of the ocean, wet, dripping.”
