Violet Chachki on the Runway at Moschino F/W 2018

Violet Chachki, the winner of season 7 of RuPaul’s Drag Race, closed the Moschino show on the runway in Milan the other day. Remember; it’s the menswear shows for fall/winter 2018 we’re watching. Ms Chachki wore a black tuxedo, with a ‘twist’. Jeremy Scott,  designer for Moschino, named this garment the “tandem tux” because the tail was fixed to yet another model wearing the same jacket. Our best guess is that it was a female model: Violet looked rather manly. Don’t get us wrong here: we think she is always adorable!

Shocking perfume bottle by Schiaparelli

The bottle was designed by Léonor Fini and represented a dressmaker dummy following the curves of Mae West, a velvet measuring tape and was decorated with porcelain flowers (inspired by Dalí ‘s paintings of flower-sellers so says wikipedia) The bottle came with a black leather carry-on case lined with fabric in shocking pink.
Needless to say, but we will; Jean Paul Gaultier took the bottle design to the next level; In 1993, he launched his first fragrance for women “JEAN-PAUL GAULTIER” (which is now called “CLASSIQUE”),  in a bottle representing a female torso based on both Madonna and the bottle of Shocking de Schiaparelli. Variations on the JPG Torso Bottles come in maybe millions and were (are?) highly collectable….
