Paris Jean Paul Gaultier

As the most masterful tailor in coutour Gaultier presented show-stoppers, all
in a Mexican theme - which was beautiful if unwearable for most of us.
Now, I could wear this dress in Puerto Vallarta - without any of the extras.
I can only imagine the exquisite embroidery of the fabric.

& this one with the fabulous jewelry effect...are those braids around her
neck or beads at the top?  See if you wore this with flip-flops or pretty little sandals
& normal hair it would be lovely, beautiful and still a show stopper.

Gaultier's fabulous fabulous fabulous shoe, nothing wierd, just wearable

His makeup trend, definitely high impact Mexican or Spanish

following is from Style.com

Here's a man who could make mincemeat of any competition in Paris when it comes to tailoring, and this is a time when women are crying out for daywear, sportswear, any kind of wear that is clean, stripped back, and new. It's a shame he's not seizing that agenda.

exactly what I said in the Chanel posting a few days ago...
why why why no daywear?
everything is costumy to the max
& for Americans not buyable, is it?

  1. With regards to the sad economy are the designer perhaps attempting to "perk" us buyers up? I'm likely being willy nilly but can't imagine why they are not creating more wearable pieces with greater longevity? I don't believe in being negative, but I don't foresee our nations financial crisis fading away anytime soon; that applies worldwide too.
    Wishing you a lovely, sunny weekend Marsha. Oh so rainy here. Hugs from Houston xx deb

  2. Oh Marsha! Yes YES YESSS! The 2nd dress is *doable* for a festive evening while traveling. You can still feel comfortable AND deliciously couture at the same time!

    Those colors are fantastic! So, okay! What piece are you creating with this inspiration?! Please let me know!
