Ok, so everyone is talking about Jean Paul Gaultier’s homage to old Hollywood in his Fall/Winter 09 couture show. But we think it’s worth at least a talk.

Reverting back to a time when glamour oozed out from those infamous hilltop letters, you know the ones we mean, JPG sets his latest couture show in the movies. The models were transformed into the likes of Greta Garbo, Joan Crawford, Marilyn Monroe, Rita Hayworth, and Catherine Deneuve. He also transformed the seating into classic movie studios.

JPG drew inspiration from films with starlets we can’t forget and creates modern pieces that bring us from the ballroom to the docks, from the African savannah to the farm.

He ended the show with a bridal gown, of course, and lit up the model’s blank face with the faces of the great actresses of our past.

We never thought overalls could be so enchanting, then again they’ve never been paired with a fabulous mink.
