Jean Paul Gaultier F/W 2011

A sexy ambiguous spy at Gaultier. French designer Jean Paul Gaultier was motivated this season by Ian Fleming's fictional character James Bond 007. A character known for his masculine charm and incredible fashion choice with his trademark sleek dinner jacket. Gaultier payed homage to Bond but added his own kinky twist by toying around with the idea of sexual perversion and femininity. With the idea of androgyny and femininity in mind the star of the show was Serbian Australian male model Andrej Pejic whom displays beautiful feminine features and long blonde hair. The gender bending idea channeled American actress Veronica Lake as the alter ego of James Bond. The feminine charm was evident in the fishnet tights that were paired with the high cut boy shorts and also peeked out under pants. The tuxedo was the main focus and was paired various pieces such as simple trousers, neoprene leggings, skirts and sexy hot pants. Amongst the tuxedo jackets was a nice variety of jackets that came in leather, fur-lined and also available in a pin-striped. Adding to the sleek sensation was the shiny diamond quilted puffer jackets. Bond's masculinity prevailed in the sleek leather trench coat and tailored to perfection tuxedo pieces. The show portrayed the different elements of James Bond with the classic look, the feminine alter ego, the villains, a femme fatale side and Goldfinger from the 1960's. The Jean Paul Gaultier look was sexy with a nice touch of femininity.

The event was held at the Jean Paul Gaultier headquarters show space on Rue Saint-Martin in Paris. The show opened with Spanish model Miguel Iglesias the traditional sleek James Bond attire of a black tuxedo with a shiny lapel and perfected bow tie and a gun in one hand. Moments after androgynous model Andrej Pejic emerged in a stunning white shirt that was undone to his navel paired with black fishnet pantyhose stockings peeking at the waist. The black tuxedo was relaxed and the look resembled Veronica Lake with his beautiful blonde hair swept to the side. A nice variety of pieces such as tailored pants paired with a long or short navy buttoned skirts were great options. Black was mostly prevalent in the villain pieces with suggestive cutouts and hot pants that were accessorized with guns.

Admired pieces in the collection were the classic sleek black tailored tuxedos and the long leather trench coats. The Gold embossed jacket was incredibly chic and was one of the most appealing pieces in the collection. The fur coat that Pejic wore in the finale was amazing and channeled the alter ego Veronica Lake.

Jean Paul Gaultier paid homage to fictional character James Bond by adding his own twist on a new character that relied on his feminine charm and masculine muscles to save the world. Gaultier displayed great skills with this collection to show the sexuality and femininity of James Bond. The Jean Paul Gaultier man is ready to save the world with his sleek look and feminine charm. -Brent Billiman reporting from Paris, France.
