Had yesterday's Jean Paul Gaultier's couture show been on Kimye's schedule, they might have actually been on time. However, there was lots more to discuss besides the the late start. In a boundary-pushing show that may almost have been well worth the 90 minute wait, Gaultier followed up his controversial Amy Winehouse-inspired couture collection with one inspired by another disheveled, drug-addled British rocker: Pete Doherty.

Doherty, of course, is still alive and well and recently made his acting debut in Confession of a Child of the Century, which premiered at Cannes this year and made an impression on Gaultier, who served on the grand jury.

Also worth noting: both men and women walked the runway and so did Gaultier's muse Andrej Pejic in two mostly-see through gowns.

The eclectic front row included Bette Midler, Ines de la Fressange and couture lingerie designer/former teen escort Zahia Dehar.

The reviews were mixed--while Suzy Menkes called it "chaotic," Tim Blanks praised Gaultier's "discipline and craft."

Despite Gaultier's apparent infatuation with troubled musicians, what do you think of the collection? Click through to see the whole thing.
