Roland Mouret Likens Pal Victoria Beckham To Lady Gaga. Um, Thanks?

What do Victoria Beckham, Lady Gaga, and Kanye West have in common? A few things, according to fashion designer, Roland Mouret — earning his utmost respect being one of them. In a recent interview with Evening Standard, the French designer spoke about his relationship with fellow fashion chum Beckham, talking admirably of her as a new breed of designer — one that is offering "the whole package.” Likening her to Gaga and West, he addresses trio as new hybrids in the industry— uniting celebrity status with design and major social media followings.
Mouret gushes with compliments for Beckham, identifying her as a “designer, promoter, and media manager all in one.” And one that isn’t fazed by constant attention or high-profile competition — go Vicks! Admittedly, it helps that she’s gives good picture. As Mouret explains, “She is the most photographed woman, so why should she be photographed in other people's clothes if she can be photographed in her own?"
But, where does he fit in? Well, he’s her mentor, duh. “I gave her some advice, some names, some people, and allowed her to call me whenever she wanted." Pretty nice gesture, Mr. Mouret. Can we give you a buzz, too? (Vogue)
