2010 amfAR New York Inspiration Gala – Kylie Minogue & Estelle In Jean Paul Gaultier

The theme for last nights “2010 amfAR New York Inspiration Gala” was ‘black tie and black leather’.

Kylie Minogue certainly read the invite.

The Australian singer wore a custom-made sexy dress by her designer pal Jean Paul Gaultier.

The sexy dress was slashed to the thigh to show off her stockings and suspenders which she paired with Zanotti heels.

The leather part came courtesy of a leather glove which wrapped around her neck from a mini handcuff.

The leather theme continued with Kylie’s second JPG look as her second dress with a white chiffon skirt, had black leather bodice, harness and leather sleeves.

Estelle was also a guest at the event which supports innovative AIDS research programs.

The Brit singer was also decked out in JPG.

She wore a Jean Paul Gaultier look which included a skirt from the Fall 2010 collection.

This skirt had a slash to the thigh with a sexy lace-up leather trim.

On The ‘All The Lovers’ Music Video Set With Kylie Minogue In Jean Paul Gaultier

On Saturday Kylie Minogue was spotted in downtown LA shooting the music video for her new single ‘All The Lovers’.

The pint-sized Australian singer looked in her element singing and dancing on set with a troop of hunky dancers.

Her love affair with Jean Paul Gaultier continues as she wore his signature trademark cone-shaped bra under a slashed Jean Paul Gaultier Spring 2010 white tee.

She gave us a flash of her famous derrière wearing black high-waisted satin pants, which she paired with white cut-out thigh-high boots.

Time to renew my gym membership me thinks.

‘All The Lovers’ is out on June 28 and Kylie’s album ‘Aphrodite’ is out on July 5.

Runway To “Aphrodite” Album Cover – Kylie Minogue In Jean Paul Gaultier Couture

We often see Kylie Minogue leaving her home in London head to toe in designer labels (today she’s wearing Preen & Dolce & Gabbana), so her album cover had to be spectular – and it is.

The Australian singer looks like a Greek goddess on the cover of her 11th studio album “Aphrodite”, which will be released in July.

Her flowing dress was of course designed by her friend Jean Paul Gaultier. The dress is from his recent Spring 2010 Couture collection.

With this stunning look on the cover, I can’t wait to see what she will be wearing in her music video’s.

The first single “All The Lovers” is set to be a huge summer anthem as it sees her celebrate her dance-floor roots.

Jean Paul Gaultier Fall 2010

Jean Paul Gaultier’s Fall 2010 presentation took us on a global adventure. We visited West Africa, Turkey, Peru, Morocco, Thailand, India, Russia, Greece, China and many other exotic locations.

The looks were mixed: Chinese silks were paired with Moroccan shoes and West African head scarves. This was best presented by Coco Rocha’s look above.

Thigh-high boots continue to rule the runway but JPG presented us boots which were printed with either florals or stripes. Trench coats were cut to the thigh to show off the boots.

The PETA protesters chanted outside the venue, but that didn’t prevent JPG from presenting pieces trimmed with fox fur and mink.

Jewelery and ankle bells jingled over the loud live band who played the African drums and other instruments.

Other distinct accessories included Masai necklaces.

We saw embroidered tunics, Greek pleated skirts, silk cheongsams, gypsy skirts, military coats, sharply tailored pinstriped suits and very baggy harem pants.

Will we see this collection on the red carpet?

I didn’t think we’d see the previous collection on the red carpet, but it was worn by Dita von Teese and Rihanna so we will have to wait and see.

Gaultier was in very high spirits as he sprinted down the runway at the end of the presentation which you can see in the video.

Normally at this point Anna Wintour rushes out of a venue, but she was still clapping along to the music after JPG had exited the runway and I sensed she was hanging around for a reason.

Then JPG ran back onto the runway, this time wearing a fur trimmed rucksack on his back which had been worn by Sasha Pivovarova during the presentation.

Oh how everyone laughed.

Dita von Teese Front Row @ Jean Paul Gaultier Spring 2010 Couture

Dita von Teese was very much the ‘Queen of the Front Row’ at Spring 2010 Haute Couture Fashion Week, despite Amber Rose trying to give her a run for her money.

The diva can go from a sexy Elie Saab dress to this Jean Paul Gaultier Fall 2008 Couture tweed dress with a fur detail on the neckline.

The classic skirt suit was worn with black thigh-high boots, whilst she carried a black perforated clutch.

Like Cate Blanchett earlier in the week, we get a peek a top of Dita’s tights via the thigh high split in her skirt.

Maybe these two are about to start a trend.
