l'enfant terrible - jean paul gaultier, haute couture collection summer 2003

happy birthday to the “enfant terrible” of fashion - no longer a bad boy at the age of 62, but still playful and irreverent just the same. once anti-establishment with his gender bending aesthetics and unconventional runway models, he has since become so worshipped by fashion minions that he is the establishment. his radical masculine/feminine underwear-on-the-outside look has become a fashion fundamental, and his conical bra, his signature. “if gaultier had a dollar for every bra now on fashion’s runways, he would be awash in royalties,” critic suzy menkes wrote 1992. he dressed the decolletage of madonna, kylie and helen mirren. and so many decades after a young jean paul fashioned one for his toy bear, he still creates sexy stuff for surprising subjects. we can't wait to find out what he dreams up next. happy birthday, jean paul gaultier!
