Stop! Pivot! Now POSE! Catherine Deneuve gives the paps an over-the-shoulder pout at Armani Haute Couture Fall-Winter; also there: Milla Jovovich, and suddenly I see what she’s going to look like at 60, don’t you? Severely elegant and totally FABULOUS. Bottom, left: The ever-alluring and gender-indefinite Amanda Lear arrived at the Jean-Paul Gaultier show looking for all the world like Faye Dunaway; and finally, Nabilla Benattia aka the French Kim Kardashian, who became famous for her uproarious one-liner ”non, mais allô quoi” (roughly translated: “No, but hello, what”) (I’m not kidding) (fuckin’ frogs, man) poses for the photogs wearing a Moschino belt (which seems rude) and a Cindy Lou Who hairdo (which seems even ruder – PEOPLE NEED TO WATCH THE SHOW, NABILLA, I MEAN, NO, BUT HELLO, WHAT, AMIRIGHT?).

Vive la France! How fierce is this train? Jean Paul Gaultier came up with some designs to plaster the French Thalys high speed train with and it totally just hipped up the room. I adore a man who loves a mermaid. (Via Janet Charlton)
Jean-Paul Gaultier took to Twitter to premiere his new spring/summer 2013 campaign photographed by Sebastian Kim and art directed by Babeth Djian. Gaultier showed off his new collection by repeating last year’s tribute to ’80s music stars. This tweet features Ginta Lapina as Madonna, Jeneil Williams as Grace Jones, Maria Kashleva as Boy George, and Hannelore Knuts as David Bowie. (madonnatribe via kellygreenblog)
Gaultier dressed models as David Bowie, Madonna, Annie Lennox, Boy George, Sade, Grace Jones, and Michael Jackson – ”all the pop stars of the Eighties who have influenced fashion” – for his Spring/Summer 2013 ready-to-wear show. The LA Times called it “fun, but a little sadly nostalgic. Like a Las Vegas celebrity tribute show.” Vogue called it “fun and uplifting,” but said the clothes were superflous. I agree. It feels a little schticky to me. Like great Halloween costumes, but nothing to wear in the real world.
The effervescent drama queen of Paris fashion has designed two new bottles for the diet soda, one for day and one for night, the night version being very bustier, of course, and the day version featuring the jaunty Breton stripes that are his signature look. They’ll hit Harvey Nichols stores in the UK on April 16, and will include a collectors set that features a limited-edition Diet Coke glass with a blue-and-white-stripe motif. The Frenchman follows on the stacked heels of Karl Lagerfeld in the soda biz; Lagerfeld was Diet Coke’s designer-in-residence last year. Yes, this is all real. (via Telegraph)
