Haute Couture TequilaHaute Couture Fashion Week in Paris ended a few weeks ago (and now the fashion world has its eyes on New York City), but I would be remiss if I did not include one last runway show video here on my blog for all my Haute Couture-loving readers to enjoy: Jean Paul Gaultier. For Spring/Summer 2010, Jean Paul Gaultier had Mexico on his mind. He confessed in an interview that it had been 30 years since he had visited Mexico but he was nonetheless, inspired. The starting off point was Mel Gibson's Mayan blood-bath film Apocalypto from 2006. The rest involved a mix of Colonial Ladies-Who- Lunch style suits, Conquistador-printed sequin gowns... Aztec Goddesses in Rodarte-inspired (?) car-wash yarn dresses, Jungle-like Bird Empresses, bustier cage cocktailwear and 80s-inspired split-side denim pant ensembles. The soundtrack was as eclectic as the clothes I just described, with a Latin-Afro-Cuban-Tropical-Jungle House vibe. There was even a "special guest star model": The exotically gorgeous Chloe Morteud, Miss France 2009. All that was missing was a Mariachi band and some Maria Felix and Cantiflas look-a-likes.
