Haute Couture Fashion Week continues to strut its stuff on the Paris runways, and who could be more representative of the flamboyant affair than Monsieur Jean-Paul Gaultier himself? The designer gave the crowd everything they were looking for and more besides, including male model of the moment Andrej Pejic, who gave the girls a run for their money in the star role of the "bride" in Gaultier's HC collection.

Looking downwards for just a moment, the footwear - while certainly not the main focus of the show - was suitably impressive. Consisting of S/M style black platforms and raggedy, crocheted 'stripper' shoes, Gaultier's footwear collection stayed resolutely in the dungeon with just a small nod to lighter summer styling. The hosiery was perhaps more impressive, including fishnet tights embroidered with delicate foliage, and many other mesh overlay effects.
