I went to see the Jean Paul Gaultier exhibition at the Barbican yesterday and it was incredible. Funnily enough, my friend Jo and I had both been to see the Bond exhibition in the same exhibition space, and both of us said how off-putting the mannequins were. Just faceless black moulds of, what looked like, sponge. It was Bond for God’s sake – the great champion of glamazons. Well these mannequins were something else – they blinked, they talked and could quite easily scare the bejesus out of any unsuspecting visitor! How perfect for Monsieur Gaultier?
And the clothes? They need no explanation – perfect for any wannabe showgirl!
P.S. Watch the Dita Von Teese video till the end otherwise you’ll miss out on the money shot!
