“It’s all cinema, it’s all from film,” said Jean Paul Gaultier, summing up haute couture. Paris’ enfant terrible seemed to have a point, speaking on the last day of fall-winter shows that have seen spectators transported from apocalyptic opera houses to the circus and flung across the four corners of the globe. Gaultier’s feline-infused couture collection – Wednesday’s highlight – took for inspiration Italian filmmaker Federico Fellini and “The Pink Panther.” The references merged with theatrical panache to produce once of his best shows in seasons. But the cinema continued throughout Wednesday. In Valentino’s encyclopedic show, continents and eras were merged and had Baz Luhrmann in delight.” Haute couture, like cinema, is unreal. It’s theatre – a romantic aspiration that’s more beautiful, more extraordinary than reality,” said the burlesque “Moulin Rouge” director who sat on the coveted front row.

JEAN PAUL GAULTIER

With a delicious purr, Gaultier pounced back into top form with a feisty couture collection, proving that despite a couple of off seasons, he still has a lot of tricks up his embroidered sleeve. This fall-winter’s muse was the female panther, which inspired a slew of fresh ideas, including plenty of new ways to wear leopard and how to dress in feathers to look like a cat. If it sounds eccentric, it was. Leopard print featured cheekily on tights below one stylish all-black crepe dress, and there were several incredible couture coats. At first glance they looked like fur but were made entirely of feathers, speckled like a big cat pelt and with white feathers at the edges to resemble skin. Gaultier, ever the showman, ensured the wackiness infused the show’s presentation as well. Forty-three looks filed by to the infectious theme of “The Pink Panther,” showcased on models who clawed as they walked. Guests looked on from stalls divided into lionesses, panthers, lynx and leopards. Sometimes they applauded, sometimes they simply laughed. But aside from all the fun, there was some serious couture at work here. – – CLICK HERE to take a look at what we are talking about ::

Image of the Day: Andrej Pejic’s Dossier Cover Gets Censored by Barnes & Noble and Borders   Androgynous model Andrej Pejic is often mistaken for a girl, but this week Barnes & Noble and Borders went so far as to censor his topless Dossier cover like they would a nudie mag, reports Jezebel.
