Gaultier or, Swooning at the De Young

Played hooky and went to the Jean Paul Gaultier exhibit at the De Young Museum in San Francisco. This was my favorite, by far. There are little toile appliques on a mesh dress. The mannequins had faces projected onto them, so they appeared to be looking around the room and speaking. It so perfectly captured the elegant goth aesthetic that I adore.

Also, I got to see Madonna's actual cone bra from her Like A Virgin tour. I swoon, I die.

Vintage Pattern Score

I found this unused pattern while on vacation in Nevada City, California, in the most random cluttered vintage shop! I love the wiggle dress, but what I really lust after is that hat!
