2008 Fall Couture: Jean Paul Gaultier

If Ursula from The Little Mermaid had a closet, many pieces from Jean Paul Gaultier's 2008 Fall Couture collection would hang in it. First thing you notice when dissecting this line is the intricate details such as piping that can be mistaken for octopus legs.
The bright colors — cobalt, neon yellow, orange, green — take center stage and up the drama factor. Protruding feathers on several dresses also stand out. Fur, leather, and satin play a key role. Leather gloves with neon piping are badass while fur collars are sophisticated. While most pieces are creature-like, some give a nod to the equestrian theme. I can't say that any of the pieces are translatable to real life but they sure electrocute the runway!

I love some of these pieces but all together they look like Ursula on acid - but I love the coral skirt with the black thingies...

Love the feather-shouldered gown, the black and coral dress, and the olive/cream/burgundy collar jacket! The cobalt blue gown is so eye-popping also.
