Gaultier Women Box in Corsets During Fashion Week

All I can do is stutter, and periodically I break into uncontrolled laughter that sounds like hooting. I did a quick screenshot so you can hoot too.

When I first saw the pictures from Jean Paul Gaultier’s runway show and realized he’d done the entire thing as a toughs and dominatrix-toned boxing… thing, I was floored. (This was also on the day I first learned about dead fly art; people come up with the weirdest things.)

But this is the guy who did Madonna’s pointy breast bra thingy, remember.

France24 quoted Gaultier as saying that the, er, point of the show was “to put up a fight against boredom and the general climate of gloom.”

Well, yeah. Obvious, once you think about it.madonna

I actually love Gaultier fashions in all their shiny black wicked ways. I wouldn’t box in Gaultier fashion, however, and I can’t imagine what those women went through, trying to kickbox in corsets. Thank god they weren’t wearing Gaultier’s $485 Salome over-the-knee black boots with the 4″ spike heel.

Cause you know, one of those to the face could totally leave a mark.

Also, boxing rings have four ropes, not three. Sorry, couldn’t help myself. They totally should have contacted me about this in advance.

More House Gaultier Fashion Week pix here. Hilarious.

    Ok so this did make me chuckle!! If I weren’t in a hair salon about to have a pair of siccors near my eyeball I may have fell over with laughter!! Thanks for the great start to my day! Thank god they left the spiked heels out of the ring!

      I think this could work as a promotion for LA Boxing, don’t you? I volunteer you to wear the over-the-knee spike heel boots, though, cause I can barely stand up in heels. Now, what should we make the owners wear?

      WILL!! Will’s gotta get in on this. We’ll bloody up his face and make him strut around in LA Boxing fashions.

      This is gonna go over BIG.
