Jean Paul Gaultier isn’t one to shy away from a themed fashion show–especially devoted to musicians–and he usually fully commits. His show for spring was no exception, and it may be one of our favorite ever. Unlike his controversial Amy Winehouse inspired couture show, no one could possibly be offended by this show–unless you hate all the most amazing pop singers of the latter half of the 20th century.
The show was an homage to all the greats from the 80s (and some 70s, too)–like Madonna, Boy George, and Michael Jackson. There were even KISS impersonators sitting front row! OK, so critics may have questioned JPG’s relevance based on this show, but anyone with a heartbeat, no matter when you were born, couldn’t possibly help but love this trip down memory lane.
From Karlie Kloss as the best Boy George ever, to sleek Grace Jones doppelgangers, click through to see how well the models (most of whom weren’t even alive when these moments were happening) pulled off these 80s icons. We put the real up against the fashion faux–can you tell the difference?
