Ines de la Fressange Trumps "All Those Sexy Little Things" at Gaultier Spring 2009

>> Jean Paul Gaultier always has a trick up his sleeve for his runway shows — think Coco Rocha's iconic Irish dancing opener — and this time, it was all about the closer.  Ines de la Fressange, 51-year-old French supermodel who in the '80s became the first model to sign an exclusive modeling contract — hers was with Chanel — finished out the appropriately '80s-inspired show in a slinky black gown and ivory tuxedo jacket.  The audience cheered her the whole way down the runway, and she turned to wave at old friends.  Gaultier, for his part, was so excited about her appearance that he "chased the former supermodel down the runway and practically wrestled her to the ground during the final moments of the show, catching her just before she fell."  De la Fressange called it a one-off occasion, admitting that she was nervous backstage "surrounded by all those sexy little things."
