JPG Couture SS14The Jean Paul Gaultier Couture Spring/Summer 2014 Show, which starred Dita Von Teese, paid homage to butterflies because, according to the French couturier, « Life is a butterfly ! ».

      LOL I don’t know how Dita Von Teese manages to have such a tiny waist, which is fabulously highlighted by Mr. Pearl’s incredible corset for JPG ! Thanks for your wonderful comment !

    Wow!! I love it! I could see that skirt getting modified into a pencil skirt shape with the same pattern for a ready to wear line. Very cool-!

      THX ! I hope that JPG will read your comment (we girls can dream !) and will turn this stunning creation into a pencil skirt for his March RTW show ! XXX

    Ooh, La, La! Time to start waist training with a corset. I love the butterfly at the chest, the stripes, the long gloves, the stockings, the plume headpiece. The feathers at the bum might be too much of a good thing for my ASSets ~ 😉

    Ahhh another magnificent Jean Paul Gaultier creation. Intricately detailed work of art, simply exquisite, and so perfectly displayed on Ms Dita, makes us all want to wear that butterfly. XOXO

    Isn’t this amazing? Gaultier, Dita and butterflies..I must be in heaven! I’m always amazed how the designers, working separate lives can come up with the same theme..and then do it completely and utterly differently.. xxx

      I’m amazed too !!! When I wrote my post, I also thought about the wonderful “butterflies” prints in Valentino’s Pre-Fall 2014 collection, that you showcased in your fab post !!! xxxxx

    Comme c’est trop beau !!! j’adooooooore ❤ couleur, tissu, forme, dessin… Je veux la même tenue ❤

    • Fashion Mayann

      January 24, 2014 at 2:45 pm

      Moi aussi, merci, et je veux le même corps que Dita Von Teese (je viens de voir sur le site du “Vogue Paris” une interview de Jean Paul Gaultier qui explique à quel point la taille minuscule de Dita et ses hanches arrondies la font ressembler à un papillon !). Quelle tenue extraordinaire !!! ❤

        January 24, 2014 at 3:24 pm

        Oui c’est vrai qu’elle est super fine !!! ^^ La vie est injuste parfois XD MDR
        Très belle en tout cas ! 🙂

      • Fashion Mayann

        January 24, 2014 at 3:35 pm

        C’est vraiment trop injuste XD Non, je ne suis pas jalouse car elle a créé un personnage vraiment unique en son genre ! ❤

    No better lady to be Jean Paul’s Madame Butterfly than the lovely Dita Von Teese…
    her style + poise and his style + creativity together make the perfect {style} duet…
    the overall look is positively stunning–my heart sings!!

      Thank you so very much ! My heart sings every time that I read your always-poetic-and-clever comments ! No wonder Dita Von Teese took to JPG’s catwalk several times : she’s the perfect muse to present his corset-inspired masterpieces !
