How Did I Miss This? Jean Paul Gaultier Fall 2010 Couture

While obsessing over Dita Von Teese I came across photos from the Jean Paul Gaultier Fall 2010 Couture show and was stunned. I have no idea how I let this get past me, it’s beautiful. It’s the dark, retro collection of my dreams. It’s like Sci-Fi  Film Noir come to life, think Gattaca. I loved the super retro but eccentric turbans in various gorgeous colors. And how wonderful did Dita Von Teese look in that skeletal work of art she stripped down to? I think I need to a Style Idol post on her, she’s definitely a very huge influence on my taste in fashion. You can view the entire collection here.

Runway Trend: Temporary Tattoos

The most unlikely of trends has popped up on several Fashion Week runways: tattoos. It started at Rodarte, with their futuristic tribal sleeves, half sleeves and neck tattoos.

At Chanel, there were pretty black and white tattoos that looked like jewelry.

There was more of a “prison tat” feel going at Jean Paul Gaultier. The models names were stenciled on various parts of their body.

Could this trend take off? Will temporary tattoos start popping up in stores next Spring? I think it’s an interesting new twist, I’d probably try something like tattoos at Chanel. It’s a very pretty, artistic addition to an outfit. So, was this just a runway trend, or will some of us be slapping on temporary tattoo sleeves in the near future?
