Jean Paul Gaultier's 80s Popstar Quiz
Oct 03, 2012 - by Jessica Lapidos
In lieu of a runway show proper, Jean Paul Gaultier dug through his own vaults to recreate iconic the looks of superstars from the great eighties, and seemed to present in small vignettes of walking icons. Perhaps he chose this approach because he spent so much of this year preparing a massive retrospective world tour exhibition of his 35 years in fashion. Or does he just not realize we've moved onto the 90s? See if you can correctly guess which pop icon he's simulating on the Paris runway to see if you're ready to KISS the 80s ta-ta, and embrace the current 90s obsession.
