Jean Paul Gaultier Covers Out’s New Design Issue

Out magazine profiles Jean Paul Gaultier in its new design-focused issue, interviewing him just after he finished a fitting for a wedding dress with a (sadly anonymous) princess. He discusses his history in the industry — from working with Pierre Cardin to Madonna — his healthy eating habits, and how he plans to spend his 60th birthday next month: “I will stay in my bed…crying.” The designer also cameos in the newly released music video for France’s 2012 Eurovision entrant, Anggun. Before the song starts, he helps her pick a naval-inspired frock coat from a rack of his clothing, which she later wears while gyrating enthusiastically around some guys dressed in tighty whities — quintessential Eurovision silliness.
