Runway Gallery: Jean Paul Gaultier Shows ‘Punk Can-Can’ For Spring 2011

I am a Jean Paul Gaultier fangirl. Still, I wasn’t completely sold on the idea of “punk” (mohawks, tartan, fishnets) meets “can-can” (full skirts and ruffles galore!), as was Gaultier’s description of his idea for Spring 2011 couture. At first glance, the collection struck me as a little too much in a few too many places, but if you squint past the crazy couture-spectacle details (that are part of the fun anyway) you can spot Gaultier’s bread and butter: razor sharp lines, immaculate tailoring, and a whole lot of good humor.

    Look 32: I predict that Madonna will be spotted wearing this in one of her regularly-scheduled “Hey, look at me! Trying to reclaim my glory days!” appearances. With HUGE over-the-knee boots and like a miniature top hat or something.

    Or Taylor Momsen, channeling same, with added shredded fishnets.
