Got Gaultier?

Did you know that major fashion designers sometimes create special collections that are featured at normal people stores? (Anna Sui for Target, Jimmy Choo for H&M, etc.) The above clothes are from Jean Paul Gaultier's spring collection for Target, available tomorrow at select stores. If Gaultier's name isn't familiar to you, just know that he designed Madonna's famous cone-shaped bra for her Blonde Ambition Tour in 1990. I'll definitely visit Target to check things out, but designers with a vision for the runway or red carpet don't always create wearable things for the rest of us (like, what's up with that dress with the eyes on it?). Regardless, I'm always so curious to see what designer collections look like at affordable prices. Some of these pieces look a little "out there," but I'll have to see for myself tomorrow!!

That's funny...the dress with the eyes is my favorite!

Though, I love the yellow Monroe-esque dress, too.

Thanks for this...I'll stop by Target today.

I love your posts about fashion :). What did you think of the collection when you went to Target? I, quite frankly, was a bit disappointed. I have a feeling that it wasn't the head designer at Gaultier that put these looks together, but they 'outsourced' it.

I can't wait, however, for Zac Posen's debut at Target... most of the dresses that will come out look very similar to ones he actually had on the runway, but just from 'cheaper' fabric and a little less complicated design... ugh.. love it! ;)

Still, 80 bucks for a dress is still so extremely expensive...
