Jean Paul Gaultier Spring 2014 Couture - #PCW

"Life is a butterfly! So all the collection is that!" explained Jean Paul Gaultier during a preview on the eve of his couture show, which used the simple metaphor and seemingly single idea to build a collection that proved to be brimming with playful reinterpretations of those winged beauties and rich with inventive technique and craftsmanship. Gaultier dubbed his girls the "Papillons de Paris", and those chic ladies were soon transformed to reflect another aspect of the City of Light: "By night, she becomes a showgirl!" laughed Gaultier who, to emphasize his point, dressed burlesque diva Diva Von Teese in a Mr. Pearl corseted creation, drawing all eyes to her hand-span wasp waist. Te elaborate evening looks were crowned with Folies Bergère - style plumed headdresses that bobbed along like fanciful insect antennae." -
