JPG Haute Couture - warming up for Barbican exhibition

I was very pleased and relieved when I heard that the Jean Paul Gaultier retrospective was coming to London - I missed it in New York and was really disappointed (they put it in Brooklyn - I would have got to it had it been at the Met :) So to whet our appetites the S/S Haute Couture Paris show - so we can see the "enfant terrible" at his most creative and at his best.  Anything to forget the perfume bottles for just a second...

The show in a nutshell...

Black widow

Butterfly headpieces

Burlesque Chic (Dita Von Teese modelling)

Showgirl Chic (there's a reason he did Kylie's tour)

Theatrical headpieces

An amazing red mesh skirt with millefeuille mermaid tail (stand out)

Gros Bisoux JPG - you are an absolute genius :)
