But, the real drama was on the runway, where massive, white sculptured 3D dresses took center stage. You thought Krystle Carrington's shoulder pads were big in the 80s? Wait until you see these!
Catherine Deneuve and another belle de jour, Dita von Teese, set the tone at Jean Paul Gaultier's astonishing Ready to Wear show. While many designers have been crucified for sending anorexics down the runway, Gaultier opted for more to love when goth cherub, Beth Ditto, saluted the audience in black shorts that fell way above her knees.
