It’s all Gaultier on the blog this week it seems, but how could I resist showing you the snaps I took while taking in the INCREDIBLE Jean Paul Gaultier Exhibit at The Brooklyn Museum??

Serious drooling and inspiration to follow…  If your jones-ing for Gaultier after this, take a look at yesterdays OOTD in the Vintage Gaultier “Va-Jacket”.

The show opened with a wall of singing mannequins in regal attire leading up to a mannequin of Gaultier himself welcoming you to his exhibit.

The detail of the fringe in this piece is just insane.  Couture Couch, anyone?

I know these iPhone snaps are hard to make out.  But if you look closely, this piece is made with a blazer entire on the front of the body.  How awesome is that?

His Can-Can Inspired skirt has LEGS imprinted on the underside– so obvious yet so original at the same time.

The Kiss.  Ugh.  Mosaic sequins show a lovers embrace.  Fabulous.

These body suits are made to look like the bones, muscles, and veins of the body.  My kind of “Bodies Exhibit”.
