  PARIS FASHION WEEK IS BURNING

Jean Paul Gaultier Is Back In Vogue With Ballroom-Themed Fashion Show

Legendary French fashion designer Jean Paul Gaultier famously designed Madonna’s conical bustier during the halcyon days of 1990, when Madge was blonde and had ambition, riding high on the success of “Vogue” — her homage to/rip-off of ballroom culture immortalized in the documentary, Paris Is Burning. For his spring 2014 show, Gaultier made the real Paris burn in a rousing example of the showmanship that propelled him to fame all those decades ago when he was known as l’enfant terrible of the French fashion scene.

The highlight of the show arrives around the 5:00 mark in the form of supermodel of the world Karlie Kloss, giving more angles than a geometry quiz to the Scissor Sister’s “Let’s Have a Kiki.” The fashion folk are too chic and dead inside to show emotion, but if this was a real ball a crowd of queens would have jumped out of their seat screaming and wagging their fingers in approval.

      FAB-U-LOUS!! That was the most creative and fun runway show I have seen in a long time!! Hats off!! And the fashion was INCREDIBLE!! Some of the outfits (maybe 2) were a bit too busy for my liking, however, that’s one man’s opinion. CONGRATULATIONS to Jean Paul!!

      @robho3: Really so you have never said something you regret while drunk or not? Never got cut of while driving and said you stupid ……, or had a women in front of you in line and call her a …. because she is just to stupid and on the phone or whatever. We all say shit, and don’t mean it or do. But if I was held responsible for everything I have ever said while, just hang me now. Grow up, some times you are what you are and called on it.
      Yes, what he said was wrong, but there was no need to go all Paula Dean on him.
