Jean Paul Gaultier's Higher Calling
We always knew Jean Paul Gaultier had a theatrical side, but this is straight-up cinematic. The March issue of Harper's Bazaar (with a suspiciously Kate Winslet-y Kate Moss on the cover) features a genius homage to director Pedro Almodovar, with our favorite fashion figures dressed as characters from some of his most iconic films. First up? Gaultier (with MariaCarla) recreating a scene from 1983's Dark Habits--in full nun getup. Karl Lagerfeld gets in on the fun as well, posing with Almodovar himself (and a few automatic weapons) in a recreation of a scene from 1997's Life Flesh. Sonia and Nathalie Rykiel also make cameos, as do YSL muses Loulou de la Falaise and Betty Catroux and Bruno Frisoni. Darlings, you shoulda been in pictures!
