Gaultier, for the Nostalgic, '80s-Obsessed Pop Music Addict in YouS

Jean-Paul Gaultier always puts on a quirky runway show, but the Spring/Summer 2013 presentation in Paris on Saturday was more like a concert. Gaultier's collection channeled music stars from the past: Michael Jackson, Grace Jones, Madonna, Sade, Ziggy Stardust.

Grace Jones and Boy George were also inspirations for Gaultier. Look closely and you'll see that the garments are actually quite beautiful and well-constructed: Crisp tuxedoes and pretty floral pants.

That Ziggy ensemble is not for the shy… Maybe Rihanna or Nicki Minaj will take it on stage? That jacket's obviously Beat It-era Michael Jackson, but cut for a lady. And on the right, more menswear cut for women, a la Annie Lennox.

More MJ, more Madonna. And since Gaultier designed the cone bra Madonna wore in her 1990 Blonde Ambition tour, for him, this is a return to roots.

Some of the ensembles were not as literal as the others. But there was still a strong retro vibe.

Bare shoulders, ankle-snapping shoes.

'90s denim, '80s floral, '70s satin (just add rollerskates).

I can't figure out what's going on with that ensemble in the middle, any guesses?

It was not necessary to paint the Grace Jones model's face darker. Sigh.

Grace, Madge, Annie.

Bondage-y shoes.

The backdrop of the show was basically a music video.
