Odile Gilbert for Jean Paul Gaultier
Earlier this month, Jean Paul Gaultier made the decision to shutter his RTW collection to focus on haute couture and his perfume business. With this "end of an era" announcement, Gaultier certainly went out with a bang on Saturday, showing highlights from his career in a Paris Fashion Week Spectacular! Normally, we like to share just a few photos from each show, but there were just too many looks for Gaultier’s last hoorah for just a few photos. Hair Stylist Odile Gilbert worked on what must have been her busiest show of fashion month, working with wigs to cornrows to everything in between.
Our fashion stylist and costume designer Arianne Phillips was quoted on Gaultier’s last show, saying: “I get emotional just talking about [it.] He’s the number-one inspiration for me, the reason why I have been inspired to pursue a career in fashion. He’s the ultimate provocateur and made me question everything that I believed fashion was — his relationship with androgyny, breaking the rules, and being a provocateur. Never in my wildest dreams would I ever imagine as an 18-year-old that I would have the pleasure to not only know him but to collaborate with him and Madonna. I’m also representing Madonna today, who’s really sorry she can’t be here.”
