Jean-Paul Gaultier | Fall 2009 Couture

Aaaaannnnddddd here’s another monsieur that knocked our berets off at last week’s Paris couture shows: Jean-Paul Gaultier. Taking inspiration from popular film (a source often mined by the designer), Gaultier showed looks that embodied, and at times, copied movie heroines. You would need to be a Roger Ebert to spot every single celluloid lady that pranced down Gaultier’s catwalk, but that won’t stop you from enjoying the style of these femme fatales.


Watching this show could make a cinephile crazy.  Here are the references we were able to spot: Blade Runner, Metropolis, Girl on a Motorcycle, Pierrot le Fou, The Matrix, Sullivan’s Travels, Pretty Woman, The Road Warrior, Working Girl, Barbarella, The Addams Family, Sunset Boulevard, and The Seven Year Itch.  If you think you can do better, feel free to one-up us in the comments section!

UPDATE! : Be sure to check out video of the show after the jump. . .
