>> After seeing Black Swan a few months ago, Jean Paul Gaultier decided to give his label the ballet treatment for Fall 2011 couture. Hence, tutu-like peplums on jackets, toe shoe-inspired heels, and a prevalence of black feathers (in a nod to the Darren Aronofsky's aforementioned film). Gaultier didn't leave his punkish roots behind, however, giving his signature Breton stripes the mink treatment, turning trenchcoats into evening dresses, and casting Eve Salvail, the '90s model with the bald, tattooed head, who hasn't set foot on a runway in 15 years. French pop icon Mylene Farmer closed out the show — which included a ski sweater composed entirely of exotic feathers — as bride.
