Wedding bells and curlers at Gaultier for fashion week

A model presents a creation by French designer Jean Paul Gaultier as part of his Haute Couture Spring Summer 2015 fashion show in ParisBy Alexandria Sage PARIS (Reuters) – Jean Paul Gaultier kicked off his haute couture show in Paris on Wednesday turning fashion on its head with a wedding gown – usually reserved as the final look – worn by a model with curlers in her hair. Set to a 1980s pop soundtrack that teased out Billy Idol’s “White Wedding”, the collection for Spring/Summer 2015 retained the French designer’s characteristic humor and irreverence. Black satin, snakeskin, crinoline – all the mainstays of Gaultier’s repertoire were mixed into this 61-look, mostly black and ivory collection that never felt trashy or out of date. The surprise finale was ex-supermodel Naomi Campbell wrapped up in what looked like shiny clear wrapping paper, a garland of orchids and ferns setting off the look.
