Jean Paul Gaultier Exhibit
Inspiration. It’s the one word that surrounds absolutely everything I do. And I can find it anywhere and in everything. But sometimes, it’s handed to me and the hunt for it isn’t necessary.
Last weekend I checked out the Jean Paul Gaultier exhibit currently showing at the de Young. One of the best fashion exhibits I’ve ever seen. If you follow his work you know he’s famous for the cone cup corsets he did for Madonna. And honestly, I wasn’t a big fan of those things. That is, until seeing them in person and learning the story behind them, signifying a woman’s power. This uber talented designer emphasizes that a woman’s sensuality IS her strength. Along with seeing his attention to detail, his impeccable tailoring, his sometimes unusual “how come noone else thought of that?” choices, I found myself in THE epitome of simple…yet complex. My absolute heaven.
And of course, had to get in the good food, before and after my mind blowing experience.

“I’m not the average girl from your video
And I ain’t built like a supermodel
But I learned to love myself unconditionally,
Because I am a queen.”
