Jean Paul Gaultier Haute Couture Fall 2010

My pal Sam and I had our eyes glued to the TV as we watched Jean Paul Gaultier's Haute Couture Fall 2010 make an appearance on FTV last night. I can't believe it was the first time this collection caught my eye because it's oh so amazing! It is the essence by French chic. Where else but Paris would you find models smoking cigarettes on holders on the runway? Not that I'm endorsing smoking. It is a filthy habit. But it definitely gives the collection a Cruella de Vil like quality. I was obsessed with her as a child - carrying around my drawn sketches of her in an elegant folio in various animal print ensembles. The turbans and red lips add that fantastic theatrical element to the collection that I adore so much. And you can't get a better stage beauty than Dita Von Teese. I love the various styles of pumps (particularly the t-bar ones), the use of sheer black fabric, velvet, fur, fishnet and lace legwear.  Magnifigue!
