Jean Paul Gaultier madonna Page 1
Someone out there clearly has a case of Blonde Ambition. Two of the iconic Jean Paul Gaultier cone bras that Madonna wore on her Blonde Ambition tour in 1990 have been sold through Christie’s auction house in London for £48,000, or about $77,000 at current exchange.
We love Jean Paul Gaultier. And who wouldn’t? He invented the cone bra! He spanked Gaga! He was an 80s pop star! It doesn’t get much better than that. The french designer was born in the suburbs of Paris and with no formal training, quickly grew to be one of the most respected names in fashion. In an interview with Opening Ceremony, Gaultier dished about his friendship with Madonna, his childhood, and what Pierre Cardin taught him. Here are some of the designer’s reflections on his 35 year career.
