French designer Jean Paul Gaultier (C) attends the final of the 2013 Eurovision Song Contest in Malmo, Sweden, on May 18, 2013.
In the last couple of years, the fashion references have been non-stop ... Jonathan Saunders, Miu Miu, Jean-Paul Gaultier, Gucci - all reference him. It seems that the creative directors of those companies often are of a certain age, and perhaps they first came across David Bowie in the ’70s and have reached these positions of authority now.
I will always have a special place in my heart for Jean Paul Gaultier who has given me so many amazing opportunities on his runway. He was the designer who asked me to Irish dance down the runway in 2007, which really put me on the fashion radar ... He has to be one of the kindest, most sincere people you could ever hope to meet and he's one of the few designers who treats models as muses and really values our opinions.More quotes »
