Jean Paul Gaultier Spring 2008 Couture

Fashion's enfant terrible Jean Paul Gaultier has put out a very wearable couture collection that mixed flowy pants suits and more ethereal dresses that bring to mind nymphs, faeries, and mermaids. Here are some of my favorites:

Chic and ladylike, this is a long way from cone bras.

The masculine pinstripe suit made feminine with cropped sleeves and stripes that emphasize a woman's curves.

This looks like feathers. I think it's a perfect red-carpet dress.
For Big Bird.

A dress suitable for Titania.

Part Egyptian goddess, part mermaid

This almost looks like a second skin. I would love to see this walk down the runway to see how it flows.

I love the subtle sparkliness of this fairy creature

Part fairy, part mermaid, part Solid Gold Dancer

A pretty literal interpretation of the mermaid theme and probably the least wearable design of the bunch, unless you're Bjork or Li'l Kim.
