Famous as the “bad boy” of fashion and the man who designed Madonna’s cone bra corset for her 1990 Blonde Ambition tour, Jean Paul Gaultier has dressed hundreds of stars over the years.
On Wednesday night, showbiz friends and fans turned out for his final show marking his 50th anniversary in the industry, which he announced just last week would be his finale.
