Yesterday, with a few San Fran hours to spare, I patroned the Jean Paul Gaultier exhibit at the DeYoung. Now, I know nothing of fashion other than how to wear select Forever 21 pieces well into your 30’s, so I didn’t know what to expect, but it was THE BEST THING IN THE WORLD. Gaultier brought back the corset and invented Madonna’s cone boobs. You wander through dark rooms full of mannequins donning his designs. But they are not just mannequins: half of them have computerized human like faces that are deceptively real, and they speak to you, in French, like a fashiony nightmare-dream. My wedding dress is on the right.
And SWEATER GOWN!
And HAIRDRYER DRESS!
You guys, the ENTIRE DRESS is a hairdryer.
