Paris Fashion Week was full of beautiful surprises that made the week even more magical for every trés chic fashion lovers. One stand out moment was Jean Paul Gaultier Ready To Wear collections showcase finale, where models gave us their most sassiest walks down the prestigious runway of the marvelous Le Grand Rex (Un cinéma à Paris). The show was beyond fabulous, with an opening dance to greet the audience to one of Paris Fashion Week’s first beauty pageants to crown ‘Miss Jean Paul Gaultier’. Instead of the typical world peace promoting beauty queens the models sashayed down the runway to Supermodel Ru Paul’s ‘You Better Work’ showcasing Jean Paul Gaultier’s iconic pinstripe designs, which was the first instalment of the show!

The show presented french cyclists riding across the stage which proceeded into the athletic inspired section of the show. Models gave absolute attitude down the runway, with conroys and bike attire inspired outfits that were paired with soccer style socks. Mixing up the colours yellow, black, blue across graffiti printed outfits with a bold blue eyeshadow and red lip. The section ended with a high cut leotard and black stockings to finish the second instalments.

‘Miss Vintage’ was the next section, where JPG had elegant mature models walk down the runway with a hunky piece of man candy. The women were as vibrant as the clothes giving us their best in cascading black and silver gowns, that opened onto a sultry section of the runway ‘Miss Smoking’. The asymmetrical designs were minimal and modern with a pop, rock and roll glamour that went on to showcase his timeless bustier designs where model extraordinaire Coco Rocha rocked it out.
