Jean Paul Gaultier is known for his creative love affairs with strong women and Madonna, Dita von Teese and Beth Ditto have all graced his catwalk with their signature style. This summer will see the designer come face-to-face with power-house of pop music Lady Gaga in a new documentary that already has people talking.
The film, which is due to air 9 June on French television channel TF6, sees the singer and designer enjoy a tête-à-tête at Gaultier’s design house in Paris. The Born This Way star is seen perusing JPG’s collection and mood boards, and caressing various designs in his studio. The teaser trailer also shows the eccentric pair take part in a saucy photo-shoot, where a habit-swathed Gaga gets a cheeky spank from the designer – who is dressed as a priest.
In the clip, as Gaga leaves the building, Gaultier presents her with a bouquet of flowers to which she replies in perfect French, “vous êtes gentil!” Translation: You are too kind. We cannot wait to see more; we might just have to book a trip to Paris to catch the first airing – and perfect our français, à la Gaga.

Check out Terry and Kate as they burglarize a Mango store wearing Terry Richardson masks and “escape” through the streets of Paris, while Kate styles herself in their latest collection.
ELLE — Gwen Stefani‘s in Cannes for a few reasons—sun, food, family fun—but the pop icon’s first order of business was shooting her third and latest commercial for L’Oreal. Yesterday, she spent twelve hours filming on a yacht, in a villa, and against an eternity pool (she swears she only got tired around hour 10).
The campaign won’t debut until September (when No Doubt’s new album hits shelves), but she did offer one great hint after lunch this afternoon when I mentioned ELLE’s May cover.
Though no one does a red lip quite like Gwen, the nude she wore on the cover was a big hit in our office—as well as L’Oreal’s. She said, “That’s what L’Oreal was really inspired by! We wanted that look for the commercial so we did a version of that—with the hair. I loved that hair; I was always very much into Bewitched and a Samantha look.”
As for tonight’s look, when she heads to Hotel du Cap for the annual AmFar gala, she’ll be wearing a dress of her own design. “I haven’t made very many couture gowns—it’s a big process and a lot of work and it’s a lot of pressure because there are so many beautiful gowns out there that I could wear, but I really wanted to make something with L.A.M.B. because I really wanted to auction it off,” Stefani said.
