The cone-shaped bustier he created for Madonna’s Blonde Ambition Tour is one of the major fashion highlights of the end of the 20th century… Designer Jean Paul Gaultier’s first retrospective opens at the Grand Palais in Paris tomorrow, and we can’t wait to discover the selection of catwalk looks, fashion shoots, costume designs and personal pictures it promises to unveil to the public… The perfect celebration of the 40-year career of one of Paris’s most well-known couturiers. Bravo Jean Paul! FB
