Gaultier's Saints and Sinners



Like Galliano, Jean Paul Gaultier's Spring '07 Couture collection was out to remind us what couture is all about! As a big fan of religious icon imagery, I was amazed with this breathtaking show of well-studied religious imagery. Gaultier made his models into statue-esque saints with makeup making them appear almost waxen.
But beneath the pomp and circumstance of halo headgear and blood-stained tears, there were certainly some very wearable pieces in the collection. It would be no surprise to see Dita modeling one of these numbers off of the runway. Though, more than anything, I'd love to take a whirl in one of those halos!
