Klaus! Kylie! Inès! JPG Loves The Eighties
You could tell something was up from the first strains of Klaus Nomi’s “The Cold Song” on the soundtrack at Jean Paul Gaultier: Fashion’s former enfant terrible was having an eighties moment in a major way. A roll call of the era’s icons made appearances: paparazzi angling for a shot of Kylie Minogue in the front row; more musical exuberance courtesy of Kate Bush; and, in the most dramatic coup, Lagerfeld’s longtime muse and the former face of France, Inès de la Fressange, working the runway to roaring applause. It was a stirring way to recapture the magic of one of couture’s golden ages, and from the audience’s reaction it was thrilled to see her again. Linda Evangelista, Stephanie Seymour, Claudia Schiffer, and now Inès—do we smell another modeling comeback story?
