Always expressive, always innovative, Jean Paul Gaultier presented recently his Fall/Winter 2010/11 Haute Couture Collection, in Paris, to verify and even surpass his long-established fame. Artistic twists mixed with classic aura, was the conclusion of what he revealed in front of dazzling guests, such as Catherine Deneuve, Frédéric Mitterrand, Jean Charles de Castelbajac, Mario Testino, and an array of fashion celebs. Central figure and muse, Dita Von Teese, the queen of burlesque, appeared in a little black dress that was off seconds later just to reveal her extravagant, seductive corset, one of Gaultier’s Couture Sculptures. Another main presence at the catwalk was the “bride”, a violinist who played the “Wedding March” herself. Common characteristic of many models was the turban they were wearing in different versions but same attitude. The most impressive piece could be a hooded long jacket made of lace on which mink fur bands were attached. Another peculiar detail was the Eiffel Tower image embroidered on the back of fishnet leggings.
