      The divinely talented Jean Paul Gaultier is rarely traditional but I’ve posted this heavenly outfit on Assumption Day, so this Virgin had to be traditional …

      Thanks so much (as we’re celebrating the Assumption of the Virgin Mary, in France, we have a 3-day weekend !). You’re so right : in this virginal look, the fantastic JPG has captured the Virgin’s exquisite peace. Have a peaceful weekend ! ❤

    Jean Paul Gaultier is amazing. He always makes you look twice, three times, or more. (and he cuts for curves!) XO
