Friday Photos: Haute Couture at the DMA

November 4, 2011

Inspired by the Dallas Museum of Art’s upcoming show, The Fashion World of Jean Paul Gaultier: From the Sidewalk to the Catwalk, I decided to walk around the galleries and find some fashion statements within our own collection. I will start November’s Friday Photo series with a collection of hats that I think even Gaultier himself would have appreciated.

Enjoy!

    These are so great! I really love it.
    Although, I really think that little Dorothy should also be added to Loryn’s Eerie Images article. I swear she sees dead people.
