Bonnes nouvelles! Jean Paul Gaultier is launching a babywear collection, Gaultier Bebe, for newborns and other petits up to two years old. The collection hits stores later this month and features knit dungarees, sailor shirts and bodysuits in Gaultier's signature red, white and blue. And just because, let's pay tribute to JPG with some of his pearls of genius. Enjoy! 

"Phtt! 'enfant terrible'.. you know, it's like grey hair... I'm a little bit fatty..." -on being called the enfant terrible of the fashion world.

"Do you know that cats can't wear corsets? They can't stand! Not at all! They just fall over. I know because I tried!"

"Elegance is a question of personality, more than one's clothing." 

"I am 1952. I masticate. I am like a big stomach."

"(It's) like a Parisian punkette. You know, originally the punk (were) English so it's the French version of punk which means a kind of bourgeois. A little chic elegant and (some kind of) accident (can) happen."

"People think that everyone wears black in France; in fact they all wear grey."

"I am obsessed with American TV and movies. It’s the reason I am a designer.”

"I think she's talented and very inpolitically incorrect, which I love. But I also think that she read up on Madonna's life and learnt it like the Bible." -on Lady Gaga

Pauvre Tavi! From her blog: "I stopped at 7-11 on the way home from school yesterday to pick up Teen Vogue as I wrote about interviewing Gwen Stefani for L.A.M.B.'s Spring collection for the new issue! Once I got outside I tripped and fell in the parking lot and ripped a pair of new tights, but a few moments of pride were enough for me." Why didn't anybody from Teen Vogue send Tavi an advance copy??? Don't they know what happens to teenagers who hang around 7-11 too much??? Finally: Is anybody going to get our beloved tween a new pair of tights??????

The mag declares that even though Abbey has been rising up the ranks for years, this season belongs to her. The 23-year old is shot by Sebastian Faena in a seventies-influenced feature wearing pieces from Yves Saint Laurent, Louis Vuitton, Versus, Burberry Prorsum and Salvatore Ferragamo.  Congrats, love! We knew you when....
