Femininity: Brought to You by Jean Paul Gaultier

Jennie, son and self saw the Jean Paul Gaultier exhibit at the de Young Museum today.  This and other exhibits had been the brainchild of John Edward Buchanan, Director of the San Francisco Fine Art Museums, who died December 2011.  (John, you were genius!   Self thanks you from the bottom of her heart for having made the de Young and the Legion of Honor must-sees, always among self’s first stops when showing around visitors from out-of-town)

The designer himself appears in the exhibit: He's the mannequin on the right.

Self thinks this was the most FABULOUS hat.

"Goth" mannequin: Lookin' good

Farewell Look

Self was very moved to learn that one of the designer’s strongest influences was his grandmother.

Once, towards the end of the exhibit, self’s flash inadvertently went off.  She waited for a reprimand from the guard.  Thank goodness he seemed to realize self was as stricken as he.

Stay tuned, dear blog readers.  Stay tuned.
