Jean Paul Gaultier at the de Young

A few days ago I had the pleasure of attending the Jean Paul Gaultier exhibit with my dear friend Kim. I can’t even describe how amazing it was. It was gorgeous and cutting-edge, with a sly sense of humor.  Talking mannequins are spread throughout the exhibit, they talk to you, they sing, they even talk to themselves in the mirror. They had a room dedicated to his corsets (Madonna cone bra included) and a room dedicated to his amazing film work, including City of Lost Children and The Fifth Element. It was just fantastic! I recommend it to Gaultier fans as well as people not as familiar with his work, it was such a great experience.

 

The exhibit is open until August 19, 2012 at the de Young Museum in Golden Gate Park
