Just Jean Paul Gaultier . . .

Run don't walk to the coolest museum exhibit I have ever seen.   Jean Paul Gaultier's - From The Sidewalk To The Catwalk exhibition at the De Young museum in San Francisco which will be on display from March 24, 2012 - August 19, 2012.

The exhibition allows you to get up close and personal to Gaultier's one of a kind pret-a-porter collections.

What makes this even more special are the 30 animated mannequins who flirt, talk, and sing to the museum patrons.

Above is a video clip of the Jean Paul Gaultier animated mannequin and one of a lady singing Madonna's Material Girl. (Apologies for when I uploaded the video to YouTube the top portion was cut off.)

The Very First Cone Bra!

  1. o wow! i loved that exhibit! i got quite excited with those mannequins flirting and talking to me, i thought. but the gowns and outfits, gaultier is a genius! to see them up close, so intricate, so original. that show was very interesting in all the detail and how it progressed and was laid out. it seemed very personal and got to learn so much about gaultier, his loves his fetishes and more... great jon, thank you.
    love, mom
