Jean Paul Gaultier Exhibition @ the de Young

Last week, my friend Jackie informed me that I was going
to be her plus one to La Grande Fête. 
La Grande Fête, basically, is going to be a fabulous party
 that will celebrate the designer' s first major exhibition.
Since he has been around for years, 
I was actually shocked when I read that this was his first major exhibition,
 but regardless, I cannot wait to see his 35- year body of work! 

Jean Paul Gaultier describes his exhibition as, 
"not a stuffy retrospective," with the hopes to make people, 
"understand that beauty can be found everywhere; even in the least expected places 
and that there is not one kind of beauty, but many kinds."

I am so excited to view "Jean Paul Gaultier: From the Sidewalk to the Catwalk," 
because the installations are going to be out of this world.
As I was reading the SF Chronicle, I was slowing freaking out 
about the multitude of technological effects that will be taking place.

 I'm especially excited about the unique mannequins that will be at the show- 
 mannequins that will come alive via audiovisual projections: 
what a  trip
It also will include 120 haute couture and pret-a-porter designs, 
covering a huge time lapse (1970s- 2010). 

I cannot believe I am going to be able to see it a day before its official opening! 
Ek, must figure out an outfit ASAP!
I cannot wait to write about the actual experience!

TGIF has a whole new meaning this week


P.S. The pictures in this post are some of my favorite looks
 from John Paul Gaultier's Spring 2012 Couture collection.

  1. レイバン RB4105、最近結構流行ってる見たいけど、みんなどう思う?私的に、レイバン RB2140の54サイズが一番好きだけど、それが大き過ぎるという人もいる。キミがRay Ban サングラスを買うなら、どちらにする?
