Jean Paul Gaultier’s Fashion Show Channeled “DWTS”

So, we’ve heard a lot about designers dressing dancers, particularly ballet dancers, recently. But fashion shows that celebrate dance? Not so much.

Until now, that is. On Saturday night, designer Jean Paul Gaultier—who made costumes for Ballet Preljocaj’s twisted take on Snow White last year—turned his Spring 2014 Paris runway show into a tongue-in-cheek version of “Dancing with the Stars,” down to the panel of “judges” that evaluated each look.

Even the most super-duper-famous of all his super-duper-famous models got in on the dancing fun. Coco Rocha, who showed off her Irish-dancing skills in Gaultier’s 2007 show, got down as Danny Zuko from Grease (though her version of his classic bad-boy outfit involved bazillion-inch heels, of course).

What does all this say about fashion? I have no idea. But it looks like it was a heck of a lot of fun—and you don’t have to take my word for it! Check out these video clips from the show:
