Re: Crystal Renn on the runway for Gaultier
It gladdens me to see so much folkloric style. It's as if, after a century of distortion, designers are finally coming back to their senses, in all the meaning of the word "sense" including common sense. The dress has a very turn-on-the-century feel to it, which was the last time of opulence and feminine majesty.
Comparing Crystal to Persephone is lovely, especially when you consider that the goddess spent much of her time in the underworld, then came back to earth in the spring. After a century underground, femininity is re-emerging.
But when looking at the pictures of her walking with Gaultier, I also can't help but compare Crystal to Cinderella, the true-hearted girl who wore the most beautiful dress and was noticed by the prince.
