Jean Paul Gaultier Comes To Montreal

On the steps of the Jean Paul Gaultier exhibit at the Museum of Fine Arts, Montreal.
Visitors were greeted by a mannequin of the designer himself with a projected moving face and audio. Sadly, his speech was in French, so I didn't catch any of it, but the effect was nevertheless very creepy.
Many of the mannequins showing his unbelievable fashion pieces also had projected moving facial expressions, and those in the religious themed gowns actually sang hymns sporatically.

I swear I did not plan this outfit on purpose, but was I pretty excited when I realized how coordinated I was? Absolutely.

The revolutionary skirt for men.

The mannequins actually revolved on several different runways, dressing up as a real fashion show.

The pointy bra, made famous by Madonna.

This couture gown took over 1000 hours to complete. That's dedication to a craft.
I may have gone a little overboard with the pictures, but how could I not make sure I had a permanent record of every detail?
