http://www.FTV.com/videos PARIS – Jean-Paul Gaultier always wows us with his shows in some way. Whether it’s the breathtaking gowns or the style of his runway, we’re always stunned into submission when watching his sleek shows. The Spring/Summer 2012 collection at Paris Fashion Week did just that for us through the retro style of the show, which began without music in a style of a couture runway from the fifties. Narrations in English and French took the place of song and the models carried cards with their look numbers as they walked. Karlie Kloss sauntered in with her sassy swagger and the crowd nodded their head in approval while the rest of the models stood behind a rack of hanging clothes in the background where models were getting into their looks as the show was happening. Jean-Paul Gaultier stood in the background, letting his models take their walks one by one. It was like you had an exclusive look at all the behind-the-scenes, backstage action. Jean-Paul Gaultier seemed to go back to the roots of true, signature Gaultier–pinstripe blazers, lace, trench coats, negligees, ponchos, statement-making shoes, and stockings embroidered with art. There were tulle corsets and bodices, drapey gowns, and minidresses and Gaultier waited for the finale to parade his sleek lingerie.
