It was the designer’s first show since exciting ready-to-wear. Instead of simply closing with a bridal look, as couturiers traditionally do, Jean Paul Gaultier gave his entire spring 2015 couture collection a wedding theme — and it sounds like this wedding was a fun one. Set to a soundtrack of “White Wedding” and “Back to Black” according to Tweeting attendees, a refreshingly diverse cast of models of various ages and shapes strutted down the runway in a mostly black and white assortment of gowns, suits, and cocktail dresses. Some pieces had very Gaultier twists, like a princess gown with a bodice resembling denim overalls and jackets covering only one arm. However, the biggest twist came at the finale, when Naomi Campbell came out not as the bride — a number of iterations of those had already walked — but as the bouquet. Literally, she wore a bouquet of flowers, replete with the cellophane wrapping and a little card that read “Gaultier Paris.” She looked incredible.
