Dita Von Teese Stripped Down to Her Licorice for Gaultier Couture

As the mercury soared yet again in Paris today, at least one of Jean Paul Gaultier’s couture catwalkers saw fit to strip down to her skivvies. Prior to closing the show main en main with JPG, burlesque queen Dita Von Teese made her first runway cameo, clad in one of the designer’s high-end iterations of the LBD. Looking like a goth Auntie Mame, Von Teese topped her Kawakubo-esque, bustled black gown with what can only be described as a turban-cum-candy wrapper—licorice, of course. When came time to show a little skin, Von Teese obliged, stripping down to a beaded corset that could totally double as a bejeweled wall hanging. Looks as though Gaultier is saving any thoughts of easy access for his upcoming La Perla lingerie collab.
