Jean-Paul Gaultier au Grand Palais

Because I love fashion in general and the genius of Jean-Paul Gaultier in particular, I had a fabulous time visiting the exhibition devoted to the French couturier, at the Grand Palais, today. 

Before coming to Paris, this exhibition has been presented in 9 important cities all over the world (Montreal, Madrid, Melbourne...). It brings together 175 haute couture, but also ready-to-wear outfits designed between 1976 and 2015. They are all absolutely gorgeous ! I was so excited seeing these magnificient pieces. This exhibition, which Jean-Paul Gaultier seens as a creation in its own right and not a retrospective, is like a show. I loved the way the outfits are presented. It was a real dazzlement.

There are also numerous of very interesting objects and archival documents, some of which are shown to the public for the first time. I loved the corner dedicated to Madonna. It reminded me when I saw both of them, in Cannes, at the 44th Film Festival, where Madonna presented "In bed with Madonna".

A great exhibition for all the family.

Until August 3rd, 2015
Galeries nationales, Clemenceau entrance.
