happy birthday, jean paul gaultier!

From cone bras to men in skirts, you’ve made musicians into style icons and kept fashion weird with gender-bending sexuality for 36 years. It’s safe to say no one else could create an Amy Winehouse tribute collection, or establish a couture house while dressing Marilyn Manson (and all without formal design training!). When homogenous fads and celebs on the red carpet threaten to make us all look the same, you’re there to remind us all to throw on a corset every once in awhile. As far as we’re concerned, age is just a number. Just one question: Will your cake be torso shaped (have your cake and be it, too?)?
