Jean Paul Gaultier is a French haute couture and prêt-à-porter fashion designer. He is described as an "enfant terrible" of the fashion industry and is known for his unconventional designs with motifs including corsets, marinières, and tin cans. Gaultier founded his fashion label in 1982 and expanded with a line of fragrances in 1993. He was the creative director for French luxury house Hermès from 2003 to 2010 and retired following his 50th-anniversary haute couture show during Paris Fashion Week in 2020.
In 1993, during the promotion for the What’s Love Got To Do With It? soundtrack, movie and tour, Tina was interviewed from Maureen Orth for the May issue of Vanity Fair magazine. For the cover picture, she wore a very special dress from Jean Paul Gaultier, photographed by Michel Comte.
