Couture Wedding Gowns
Couture wedding gowns - you may love them or loathe them but you probably won't forget them. Jean Paul Gaultier, the infamous bad boy of French bridal fashion, designed these eye-popping haute couture wedding gowns. Why is he so special? Long before the bridal industry embraced full figured brides, he was proudly showing off their curves on catwalks and in exhibitions. And ditto for models with body piercings and tattoos. Men he dressed as beautiful women and women he dressed as men. He refused to do what had always been done on fashion runways from Barcelona to Brazil. A French bridal designer with a point of view you won't soon forget.
