From the Sidewalk to the Catwalk… and then to Brooklyn

Jean Paul Gaultier and Amanda LePore

Jean Paul Gaultier and Amanda LePore

What: A VIP reception celebrating the opening of “The Fashion World of Jean Paul Gaultier: From the Sidewalk to the Catwalk” in New York.

When: Wednesday, October 23

Where: The Brooklyn Museum

Who: Jean Paul Gaultier was joined by many muses—Beth Ditto, Karlie Kloss (who owned the designer’s Spring 2014 runway show in Paris), Amanda LePore, and Coco Rocha—as well as fellow designers Calvin Klein, Sophie Theallet, and Christian Siriano. No one, however, was more appropriately attired than the legendary Susanne Bartsch.

Why: This may not be the first opening celebration for this particular exhibition, which originated in Montreal, but lets be honest: talking mannequins and pointy bras projections never get old.
