PHOTOS: Jean Paul Gaultier’s Couture Bride Has A Surprise In Her Skirt
The couture shows in Paris are wrapping up today, and so far we’ve seen some dreamy ensembles, scary eye makeup, and possibly intentional wardrobe malfunctions on the runway. But Jean Paul Gaultier‘s spring 2013 show is probably the cutest. Sorry, Hudson Kroenig.
This season, Gaultier was inspired by Indian Gypsies, or rather, he imagined what Real Housewives of Mumbai would look like, and showed a collection of colorful and detailed gowns offset by his signature corsetry and cone bras. His last look, per couture tradition, was a bridal gown, which was a cropped top and caged skirt made from tulle and accented with gold embroidery. But that’s not all he sent out — when the bride appeared on the runway, she lifted the enormous cage skirt, which was wider than the runway itself, to reveal four adorable little girls in bright outfits à la The Nutcracker. Surprise!
