Chaos to Couture Met Gala

by kristy

The Metropolitan Museum of Art’s annual Costume Institute Gala was anything but ordinary with it’s edgy “Punk: Chaos to Couture” theme. As a Wardrobe Stylist I would have LOVED to dress someone for this event. Here are some of my favorite looks from the event.

JEAN PAUL GAULTIER EXPO – FROM THE SIDE WALK TO THE CAT WALK

by kristy

Jean Paul Gaultier launched his first prêt-à-porter collection in 1976 and founded his own couture house in 1997. Emerging as a designer in the 1970s he quickly was recognized for his sometimes controversial context playing with gender-bender, men’s health  androgynous styles. The exhibit includes 140 different pieces of work that were created from the mid 70’s-2010. Check out some of Gaultier’s extremely talented  work below.
