Paris Fashion Week: Watch Jean Paul Gaultier Spring 2012 show
I love to see a bit of humour on the runway, it helps to break up the monotony especially during the last week of fashion month. At the Jean Paul Gaultier S/S12 presentation, models cheekily carried numbered flash cards as they strutted their stuff. Only they weren't strutting to the beat of a song but rather the narration of French weather girl, Charlotte Le Bon. This was in addition to the makeshift photo studio set up half-way down the catwalk which allowed Miles Alridge to photograph the collection - yep, this wasn't your average run-of-the-mill fashion show.
Besides all the action, the clothes themselves were deliciously chic with a distinct nod to the Forties thanks to rolled up hair. Pieces included various styles of trenches, fluid suits, wide waist belts, floaty trousers with thigh-high splits, long cocktail evening gowns which featured delicate snoods. So very elegant, so very screen siren!
