Jean Paul Gaultier Exhibit at the Brooklyn Museum

This past weekend I took a trip to the Brooklyn Museum to check out the Jean Paul Gaultier exhibit before it closes at the end of January. The entire exhibition is huge, and well-worth the entrance fee. There are tons of gowns and menswear pieces from his collections over the years. Most impressive were the talking faces on all of the mannequins. I've actually seen this before when I was visiting a puppet museum in Connecticut a few months ago. A projection is cast onto the mannequins face making it appear they are blinking, talking, and looking around.

Very cool.

Below are a few photos I took at the exhibit.

This mannequin's eyes moved. Creepy but also fascinating.

I was really into the details in a lot of his menswear stuff. This over-the-pant detail really stood out to me.

Of course I had to take photos of all his fashion illustrations. I noticed he doesn't draw feet. Interesting.

Beautiful and very intricate wedding dress. These photos are only a tiny portion of what I saw. It is even more fascinating in person.
