2009 Fall Couture: Jean Paul Gaultier

Judging from Jean Paul Gaultier's Fall couture creations, he didn't have a shortage of inspiration. The powerful warrior princess, the chic '20s flapper, the old-Hollywood actress, and the feisty futuristic goddess all had a place on the catwalk . . . and in JPG's eyes, they all prevail. Exquisite gowns set a glamorous tone: some with floor-length capes attached to them, some robe-like, and some chiffon with armor-like bodices. Fur played a big part — fur collars, coats, chubbies, and skirts made appearances. And what's luxury without beading? It showed up in the most unique ways, my favorite being the fine gold beaded overalls Kim Noorda rocked. Color didn't play a big part, but there were random bouts of rich purple, yellow, pink, and brown.


Step into Jean Paul Gaultier's universe.

JPG perfected the 2009 Fall Collection in my opinion. Even though the ideas and inspiration behind the looks can sound cluttered, they are clearly expressed through the clothes and in brilliant ways. I love the way all the items as well as colors and the accessories come together so well to give that rocker, warrior, glam, and chic look. My fav are the fur accent on the sleeves!

This collection is divine! It's been awhile since I've been impressed with what I've seen on the runway. Fall 09 is changing all that.
