Break out the hairspray and the crimper! Because Jean Paul Gaultier is taking everyone back to the 80s!
On Saturday the French designer presented his S/S 2013 offerings, and like Philip Treacy, he had pop icons on the brain.
JPG said in his show notes:
"This is an homage to all the pop stars of the Eighties who have influenced fashion and my fashion with their look. Any similarity with real events or characters is purely noncoincidental."
And how could it not be when the Parisian runway was lined with Michael Jackson, Madonna, Boy George, Annie Lennox, Jane Birkin and Grace Jones look-a-likes.
JPG even threw in a David Bowie twin for good measure.
As for the clothes, they weren't so bad either. That is if you don't mind reliving all the 80s trends.
Check out show HIGHlights in the clip (above)!

Tim Burton called and wants his Batman costumes back!
Balmain’s S/S 2013 at Paris Fashion Week could be defined in one word: structured.
Designer Olivier Rousteing's Cuban and Sade inspired line was very hit and miss; some pieces were gorgeous while others were boxy and uninspiring.
In fact, the whole collection was very been there done that and seemed like the love child of Alexander McQueen Resort 2010 and Balenciaga S/S 2011.
We're ready to see something else from Olivier. Are U???

After some time away from the spotlight, singer Sade is back and gracing the April 2010 cover issue of Ebony.
Surprisingly, she tossed that famous bun of hers out and let her hair down.
And she looks wonderful!
According to her interview with Ebony, Sade reveals “I’ve had my ups and downs in the years between these albums. That’s partly why I’m able to write songs that people in some way can hear. I express feelings, real feelings.”
Sade's taken a 10 year hiatus, but she goes on to talk about her life, her 13-year-old daughter, and her music career.
And her latest album, Soldier of Love, is already topping the charts.
To check out the complete interview, the issue hits stands this March 9th.
