Montreal Museum of Fine Arts

Last week I went to the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts in downtown Montreal to go see the Jean Paul Gaultier exhibition which was absolutely breathtaking. It was incredibly well presented highlighting all of the key components Gaultier is famous for: Madonna bra, cross-gender, sexuality, nudity, different cultures, fetishes, etc. The moving facial images on the mannequins that would wink, smile, and speak to the admirers walking by in French added a fun yet eerie sensation to the already dark, androgynous, and haunting rooms. Here are some images taken on my handy disposable camera of the mind-blowing works of art by JPG.

On another note I am also adding a photo of myself in front of one of my favourite contemporary paintings at the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts of a room in Versailles...makes me feel like I am back in France (sigh).


What I am wearing:

Brandy Melville silk black shorts.
Anthropologie charcoal top (it's actually a pajama top that I kind of wear during the day...hehe).
Club Monaco crystal headband (that I use as a necklace from time to time).
Zadig & Voltaire bag.
Banana Republic elephant silver bangle.
