With dramatic androgyny, Jean Paul Gaultier presented one very curious collection. His muse? Singer (and more recently minted actor) Pete Doherty in his role as a seductive, decadent dandy in the film “Confessions of a Child of the Century”. The provocative collection is comprised of a lot black which gives way to bursts of metallic golds, flashes of color, glamourous fox fur, and art deco prints and details that play homage to films of the silver screen. Of course the turbans, top hats, and corsets cannot pass without mention… quite a lively couture romp!

The BeautifulCurious most desired look of the Jean Paul Gaultier Couture Collection is:

Vogue Italia, March 2012 Couture Supplement, Christian Dior, Paolo Roversi, Vogue Italia, Valentino, Givenchy, Giambattista Valli, Chanel, Marie Piovesan, Jean Paul Gaultier, Atelier Versace, Armani Privé, Aspinal of London, A Lady In Spring

No one plays with shadow and light like Paolo Roersi. His crafty blend of scullduggery stirs the beautiful and the curious with haunting elegance for Vogue Italia’s March 2012 Couture Supplement titled “A Lady In Spring”. Shadowed by birds, insects and a variety of other flora, Marie Piovesan is cloaked in an array of spring 2012 couture collections: Valentino, Givenchy, Giambattista Valli, Chanel, Christian Dior, and Armani Privé to name a few. And it has rarely been more glamorous to be “masked” in eyewear, which makes the mystery all the more decadent.

In the beginning, there was Karl. Or at least this is so for the very curious role of “Diet Coke Creative Director”. And now there is Jean Paul Gaultier. Sometimes less is more – just watch.

Alix Malka, Subaquatic Beauty, Jean-Paul Gaultier, Alexander McQueen, Roberto Cavalli, Lanvin, Numero Tokyo, Marcelina SowaIf the wind knew that water could make dresses flow this way, it would surely be jealous. Well, to be fair, it is Alix Malka who makes it so and the beautiful drama he has achieved through such aquatic alchemy is extraordinary. He has shot a number of projects in the water, but this editorial for Numéro Tokyo titled “Subaquatic Beauty” is not possible to forget. Gowns by Jean-Paul Gaultier, Alexander McQueen, Roberto Cavalli, and Lanvin have never blossomed with such grace.

Coco Rocha, Esprits Couture, Jean Paul Gaultier, Les Echos, Sophie DelaporteSophie Delaport recently hit my radar because of her rich color palette and graphic compositions. With minimal propping she directs strong, kinetic movement and knows how to pack tension in her images. I see a powerful elegance here in this editorial titled “Esprits Couture”, styled by Jean-Paul Gaultier. The geometry of her work well suites the drama of the dresses and she understands how to capture movement of fabric. One can fill their head with her beautiful color in film, fine art and fashion at:
