Well Played: Kirsten Dunst At The “Bachelorette” Premiere

Brr! It's cold in here! There must be an incredible Jean Paul Gaultier dress in the atmosphere! Seriously though, Torrance Shipman Kirsten Dunst looks amazing at the LA premiere of her new movie, "Bachelorette," wearing a slouchy JPG resort gown that strikes just the right balance of retro and modern. I never thought a double-breasted…

Jean Paul Gaultier’s Enfant Terrible Fashion World Comes To Life

It's undeniable that Jean Paul Gaultier's design career — always innovative, always stunningly avant-garde — is well beyond deserving of an exhibit (really, his works could and should launch a museum). After over forty years in the business of haute couture, the designer is at long last the subject of a solo exposition at De…

Rich People Dilemma: Where Do I Display My Jean-Paul Gaultier Gold Bar?

My Jean-Paul Gaultier gold bar isn't like the rest of my gold bars. It's emblazoned with designer Jean-Paul Gaultier's name and logo, for chrissakes. That means it cost a premium -- like 10 percent more than the common gold bar, just because it has Gaultier's name on it. So of course I can't put it…

Dita Von Teese Struts In A Mechanical Jean-Paul Gaultier Corset

As though Jean-Paul Gaultier's couture presentation weren't awesome enough with its copious turbans and leather, Dita Von Teese capped off the show in a patent leather, jewel-encrusted, and, best of all, mechanical corset. Only vaguely skeletal from the front, the thing looked positively macabre (in a cool way) from the back. Click through for more…

Levi’s + Gaultier = Denim Cone Boobs

With the news that Jean Paul Gaultier is leaving his post at Hermès, it's safe to assume that the designer will have more time to focus on creative collaborations such as this one with Levi's. The all-American jean company reached out to the eccentric JPG to create a collection of denim pieces complete with hi…

Jean Paul Gaultier’s Line For Target Debuted, Sold Out

Jean Paul Gaultier's collection for Target arrived today yesterday, but if you didn't stay up all night, endlessly refreshing Target.com, or make an early morning trip to the store, you probably missed out. That's because most of the JPG for Target clothes were gone before 9 a.m. on Monday morning. I thought the point of…

“Avatar” Takes On The Runway

We've talked about the "Alice In Wonderland" impact on the runway, but it looks like this year's Oscar darling has the Disney classic beat. "Avatar," the James Cameron flick about big blue aliens and their planet (OK, so I fell asleep during the movie), raked in over $2 billion so it was only a matter…

Quick Pic: Tights That Cost More Than Most Of Our Clothes

While flipping through the September/October issue of Manhattan magazine, we noticed a fashion spread with a model wearing what looks like the nonsensical Siwy see-through jeans. Upon closer inspection, however, we discovered they are, in fact, Jean Paul Gaultier fishnet panel tights, and they retail at Bergdorf Goodman for a mere $135. Can you imagine…

Things That Make You Go Awww: Jean-Paul Gaultier For Kids

You know what they say: The children are our future. Of late, this is especially the case in fashion, with Marc Jacobs' foray into swimwear for tots and Cynthia Rowley's new collection for mega-chain Babies"R"Us (uh, we know). Hand it to Monsieur Jean Paul Gaultier to kick it up a notch with his new squeal-worthy…

Oh Hell No: Denim Tube Tops For Men!

Oh, Jean-Paul Gautier, you never cease to entertain. At his Spring 2010 menswear show the designer has a few of his male models strut down the runway in denim tube tops. While I don't think this is a trend that will trickle down to the masses, will fashion-obsessed celebs like Kanye West embrace it? Gue…
