Dita Von Teese Was The Surprise Guests at Jean Paul Gaultier’s Couture Show Yesterday
The burlesque dancer – famed for her bright red lips and alabaster complexion – took to the catwalk in a racy ribbed number, cinching in her tiny waist and leaving little to the imagination.
The show was an unashamed tribute to glamor, with models holding cigarettes in cigarette holders and donning turbans while wearing beautiful creations in a myriad of dark shades, although black was the dominating force in the collection.
Actress Catherine Deneuve watched from the front row as reams of fur-trimmed opulent pieces created by Gaultier made their way down the runway – with sex clearly being on the Frenchman’s mind, with plenty of underwear on show leading to the finale by Von Teese.
Valentino also put on a chic display of mini-dresses in his couture collection, with bow detailing and short hemlines making the otherwise safe collection have a feeling of opulence and glamor.
