Page Turner


I’m totally jealous that Jean Paul Gaultier made a stop in Montreal. JPG attended the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts’ opening of The Fashion World of Jean Paul Gaultier: From the Sidewalk to the Catwalk. One of the first international exhibition devoted to the couture extraordinaire.

Absolutely adore his work. He seems to turn everything from the ordinary to the extraordinary. And adds such a fantastic flare to everything he designs.  There is certain sexual electricity that touches his work – it’s truly gorgeous and tantalizing at the same time. Remember Madonna’s cone bras??

Recently, JPG guest edited the French publication Libération (you can download and purchase the magazine here). He stylized and art directed the pages by enlisting everyone in the publication to participate in the photoshoot. He incorporates the pages of the publication and turns them into prêt-à-portie fashion in typical Jean Paul Gaultier! And in Jean Paul Gaultier fashion, this is what he had to say:

We won’t be Photoshopping the images. We don’t need to because they’re all going to be great….when a picture is good it captures only beauty, so there’s nothing to worry about.
