>> Finding unlikely red carpet success: the fish scales of Jean Paul Gaultier's Spring 2008 couture collection. When Marion Cotillard wore her mermaid dress to the Oscars in February, she quipped simply: "When I saw this dress from his last collection, I knew I wanted to wear it." Meanwhile, Gwyneth Paltrow wore another piece from the collection yesterday during her worldwide promotion of Iron Man.
They both looked great, and more importantly, it wasn't just the same old red carpet fare. Here's to hoping that someone else will feel like pulling a Little Mermaid for the Costume Institute Gala.
