PFW: Jean Paul Gaultier – ’80s Gay Icons – Not as Fabulous As It Sounds…

Hiya Poutlings

There are not many words falling out of my gawping mouth as aI look again and again at the tribute to ’80s gay icons that was Jean Paul Gaultier‘s Spring 2013 runway show at Paris Fashion Week.

We all love some Madonna, Grace Jones and Boy George, but this is a cringe-worthy pop parade which did neither Jean Paul Gaultier nor the memories of these artists in their prime any justice, whatsoever.

Let the pictures do the talking with my running internal dialog of what I think:

Opening with Mork and Mindy V-tuxedo a la Grace Jones

 

 

On to more androgyny with a few Annie Lennox-es

Madonna look 1 – Blonde Ambition

Madonna look 2 – Like a Virgin

More Boy George circa Culture Club Karma Chameleon than is healthy for the senses

Michael Jackson-alikes. Dear God will it end. Philip Treacy wrung this one dry… and I have not yet blogged about, but I may do so… but Michael Jackon scares me.

oh look… a Jamie Foxx look-a-like…

Aaah, Sade.

Ziggy Bizarre-dust

The ugliest garment to ever walk a Paris runway, EVER.

and in true Jean Paul Gaultier style, he closed the runway with a bunch of late ’80s bondage house dancers – which in fairness should close everything ever.

one of the bondage house dancers who closed Jean Paul Gaultier’s show…

Jean Paul Gaultier got dealt a tough card with having to follow Phillip Treacy’s dramatic London show which featured Michael Jackson’s actual costumes, the show was only 2 weeks ago so that kinda leaves Jean Paul sitting in the dust behind Phillip Treacy. I may even have to blog about Phillip Treacy’s show, just to show you the awe of the garments he made, but the thoughts of looking at lots of Michael Jackson-likes scares me, he really does scare me.

As with Jean Paul Gaultier’s Amy Winehouse tribute last season, Jean Paul is on what seems to be an unstoppable attempt to bring back an irrelevant circus act.

What do you think of his collection? Did it hurt your eyes like it did mine??

Miley Covers Marie Claire September 2012

Heya Poutlings!

I did mention this on my mini blurb post on our Pout Perfection Facebook Page yesterday but these images are spectacular and as such require their own fresh post!

Helping the publication boost sales, Miley Cyrus was picked to cover the September 2012 issue of Marie Claire.

Miley looks striking in a Christian Dior dress on the magazine’s front page while rocking looks from top designers including Paco Rabanne, Aquilano Rimondi, Tom Ford, Versage, Roberto Cavalli and Kanye West throughout Tesh’s Malibu Hills held photoshoot.

The magazine will be on sale in the states from 17th of August, I thought I’d share a few of the highlights from the interview.

Miley on being engaged to Liam Hemsworth:

Life is too short not to be with the person you want to be with. I don’t really care about the wedding or the piece of paper as much as I do the promise we’ve made to each other. And we want to have a long engagement

On her dog, Ziggy:

She’s a stubborn little bitch, that one. She doesn’t listen to me. She’s in love with Liam. She loves me when he’s gone, but she totally ate my diamonds on purpose. She was pooping them out all morning.

On her vintage engagement ring:

I had no input. We’d been kind of talking about [getting engaged], and I saw something like it online at one point and thought it was really pretty, but I usually wear rose gold. I just love that it’s old and has a story. And I’m happy because it doesn’t look like anything else I wear.

I absolutely love these images of Miley looking as fabulous as ever!
