Jean Paul Gaultier

Jean Paul Gaultier flashes some leg at the private view of his exhibition last night

Jean Paul Gaultier, the 'enfant terrible' of fashion, made sure he made an entrance at the private view of his retrospective exhibition at the Barbican last night.

Arriving arm in arm with a lookalike of Her Maj, Jean Paul Gaultier flashed some serious leg in his thigh-high black skirt teamed with black tux jacket, shirt and tie.

The French designer's clearly been taking tips from the ladies, as he pulled a leg bomb (yep, pose made famous by Angelina Jolie at the 2012 Oscars, and recently revived by Kate Winslet and Taylor Swift has it's own name), like a pro.

The Fashion World of Jean Paul Gaultier From the Sidewalk to the Catwalk takes a look back at Gaultier's many iconic ready-to-wear and Haute Couture creations (yes, the Madonna cone bra is there) that he has brought into the world over the past 40 years.

The exhibition opens at the Barbican tomorrow, April 9, and runs until August 25.
