The always-lovable Jean Paul Gaultier scored the cover of French daily Libération on Tuesday as part of his press tour to celebrate the opening of a major career retrospective at The Montreal Museum of Fine Arts. According to WWD:
Gaultier’s adventures included “making over the paper’s staff with outfits made from recycled newspapers for a series of portraits. The other subjects shot by photographer Patrick Swirc included journalists, accountants, photo editors and Web developers dressed in paper versions of iconic Gaultier outfits including a trench coat, a men’s skirt and a bustier with a conical bra. Even receptionist Rachid Laïreche was roped into the shoot, transformed into a boxer wearing newspaper shorts.
The Fashion World of Jean Paul Gaultier: From the Sidewalk to the Catwalk will run in Montreal from Friday to Oct. 2 before traveling to Dallas and San Francisco.
