Beauty and the Beast

17 Dec

JPG Couture AW67

The surrealism-inspired Jean Paul Gaultier Couture Autumn/Winter 2006-2007 Show (whose 32nd look, « Médée », reinterpreted the « Skeleton Dress » that Elsa Schiaparelli made in collaboration with Salvador Dalí) paid homage to Jean Cocteau’s « Beauty and the Beast / La Belle et la Bête ».

Other « Beauty and the Beast »-influenced campaigns, collection, items or windows : Custo Barcelona Autumn/Winter 2013-2014 (this show, titled « Beauty and the Best », drew inspiration from « Beauty and the Beast »), Dior (the TV ad for the « Poison » fragrance, directed in 1985 by Claude Chabrol and Tyen, reimagined « Beauty and the Beast » ; the TV campaign for the « Pure Poison » perfume, directed in 2004 by Jean-Baptiste Mondino and John Galliano, also took inspiration from Jean Cocteau’s romantic fantasy film), Diptyque (in September 2009, Diptyque launched 2 candles, illustrated by Kuntzel + Deygas, which paid tribute to « Beauty and the Beast »), Galeries Lafayette (to celebrate the 2014 release of Christophe Gans’ « Beauty and the Beast » remake, the Galeries Lafayette Haussmann, in Paris, displayed several « Beauty and the Beast »-themed Christmas windows, which were unveiled in November 2013).

    Comme tu t’en doute, j’aime la couleur ^^
    Par contre le haut me fait trop penser à des pattes d’insectes, araignée notamment ! XD bihiiiii du coup, grande trouillarde des araignées et compagnie, je ne chipe ici que la couleur et la texture du tissu 🙂 🙂 🙂

      Ouïe, ouïe, ouïe, je n’avais pas vu cette référence aux araignées, pardon ! Moi, aussi dingue de cette couleur que toi, amoureuse des artistes surréalistes, et folle d’amour pour le travail de ce maître de la couture, je ne vois qu’une chose : une robe stupéfiante que je rêverais de porter si j’étais une star ! ❤

        MDR 🙂 pour le coup j’ai eu l’imagination qui est partie en vrille XD

        C’est vrai XD ! Moi, comme je ne porte jamais de blanc, les robes de mariée ne me font pas tellement rêver, sauf, bien sûr, si c’est un modèle créé par JPG, je ferais une exception, mais, rassure-toi, ce n’est pas à l’ordre du jour MDR ! ❤

        Hum qui sait ??? 😉 on ne sait jamais ^^
        Moi non plus je ne porte jamais de blanc, ou très rarement, car avec mes chiens et ma maladresse, les habits se tâchent trop vite XD mdr mais pour une robe de mariée je ferai une exception XD

        Je te le souhaite XD Et si c’est un grand couturier qui dessine ta robe de mariée (on ne sait jamais …), il faudra lui demander de créer les tenues assorties pour tes chiens ! ❤

    This one definitely took my breath away- I love how it’s a very understated skeleton abstract look.

    I love Erin O,Connor! She always seems so down to earth amongst so many divas.

      I totally agree ! She has often took to the catwalk for Jean Paul Gaultier, and I have always thought that her “uniqueness” was perfect for the French couturier’s truly original talent ! X
