The couture shows were being wrapped up in Paris yesterday after a long week which included some dreamy ensembles, scary eye makeup and posibly intentional wardrobe malfuncions on the runway. Which I hope to find time to blog about soon.
However, this season Jean Paul Gaultier was inspired by Indian Gypsies, or rather, he imagined what the “Real Housewives of Mumbai” would look like, and showed a collection of colourful and detailed gowns offset by his signature corsetry and cone bras.
His last look, per couture tradition, was a bridal gown, which was a cropped top and a caged skirt made from tulle and accented with gold embroidery. But that’s not all he sent out – when the bride appeared on the runway, she lifted the enormous cage skirt, whuch was wider than the runway itself, to reveal four adorable little girls in bright outfits a la The Nutcracker.
Couture never looked like so much fun.
