I went last week to hear fashion icon (and musician!) Jean Paul Gaultier, 61, interviewed by Thierry-Maxime Loriot, the curator of his massive new retrospective at the Brooklyn Museum.
Loriot, a looker in black leather pants, guided the loquacious fashion icon through a series of questions about his humble beginnings (when, as Gaultier pointed out, "I 'ad no muh-NEH!") through his Madonna years and beyond.
Gaultier was bubbly and quick with a story—and an opinion. Everyone laughed when he said music has been important to his creative process, then seemed to slam current music by saying, "Now, maybe...not."
