Wandering aimlessly around Golden Gate Park, I stumbled on one of the best fashion exhibits I’ve ever seen, The Fashion World of Jean Paul Gaultier: From the Sidewalk to the Catwalk at the de Young Museum. AMAZING. Sometimes a walk in the park does lead to a fabulous adventure.

Many of the mannequins had faces projected on them and they blinked, smiled and talked to you. Slightly creepy.

Recognize Madonna’s famous costumes?

The leopard print on this dress is created with beads–done by hand!! BY HAND!

The way he transformed materials into beautiful objects of art, not to mention the level of craftmanship, took my breath away. If you’re in San Francisco, go check it out. And take your camera. I didn’t have mine and had to borrow my friend’s iPhone. I hope it comes to New York so I can spend all day with Gaultier without being dragged out of the museum by my up-until-then very patient friend.
