Though we may complain that our feet ache from wearing heels or skinny jeans are so unforgiving, today’s fashion goes pretty easy on women. Centuries ago, women were subject to the constraints of ancient lingerie that makes a thong feel like a sweat pant.
Now all of these undergarments are being exposed at and exhibition at Les Arts Decoratifs in Paris called ‘La mécanique des dessous, une histoire indiscrète de la silhouette’. Corsets, crinolines, stomach belts, bras and bustles will be on display and you can see the inspiration in today’s designers like Comme des Garçons and Jean Paul Gaultier who take a cue from our well dressed ancestors.
The Gossip front woman Beth Ditto married her long time girlfriend in Hawaii. Her dress was designed by Jean Paul Gaultier who also used Ditto in his S/S 2011 runway show. I just love a happy ending!
If you could pick someone to designer YOUR wedding dress, who would you choose?
