There was a lot of buzz about the Jean Paul Gaultier Spring Couture show and it wasn’t just all about the fashion. All eyes were one Inès de la Fressange as the 51 year old, ex model returned to the runway. There’s no denying that Inès de la Fressange stole the show.
Inès de la Fressange was the first model to sign an exclusive modeling contract with a haute couture fashion – Chanel – back in the 80s. She was essentially Karl Lagerfeld’s muse. After Fressange and Lagerfeld parted ways, Fressange went on to represent Marianne, France’s symbol of femininity.
