Androgyny, Turban, Top Hat, and Roaring Twenties COUTURE:

Maharaja meets Cross Dressing Couture: Designer Jean Paul Gaultier and "Le Mariage" finale model, Jean Paul Gaultier Haute Couture Fall/Winter 2012

Paris Haute Couture Fashion Week continues and I, of course, feel it my Fashion Duty to bring you highlights (from my fashion "home-office" in LA!). Today, it's Jean Paul Gaultier. The "bad boy" of couture showed his Fall/Winter 2012 collection based on Pete Doherty, star of the Sylvie Verheyde's adaptation of nineteenth century poet Alfred de Musset's Confession of a Child of the Century.

 Top Hat Wedding: The Final Look, Jean Paul Gaultier Haute Couture Fall/Winter 2012

Poet de Musset's grand amour was the novelist George Sand, who scandalized mid-nineteenth century Paris by wearing men's clothes and smoking in public and Gaultier's collection saluted this in all its glory on the runway.

 Tailcoat and Trenches: Jean Paul Gaultier Haute Couture Fall/Winter 2012

Model Erin O'Connor opened the show as Sand, in top hat, tailcoat, and gentleman's le smoking tailcoat. There was Gaultier's creative take on le trench, lots of top hats and gorgeous coats. tailored pants fit like exquisite gowns (hello, it's Haute Couture kids!).

 Trouser Couture: Jean Paul Gaultier Haute Couture Fall/Winter 2012

Six foot tall+ Supermodel Karlie Kloss (above photo, left) glided on the catwalk with a sheer and sparkly sequined loose jumpsuit topped by a bolero jacket, scarf and platform heels. Black and white prevailed but for the gowns and evening wear, there were bolts of color and roaring twenties silhouettes...

 Netting Queen: Jean Paul Gaultier Haute Couture Fall/Winter 2012

Accessorized with a netting "cap" (netting is THE accessory of the season it seems!).

Roaring Twenties Divas: Jean Paul Gaultier Haute Couture Fall/Winter 2012

Oh and did I mention Gaultier's Top Hat-and-Turban'ed Boys:
