Jean Paul Gaultier Unveils French Can-Can-Themed Christmas Tree

YES HE CAN-CAN: Leave it to Jean Paul Gaultier’s high-kicking French Can-Can-themed Christmas tree — tinsel-edged skirt and all — to attract the highest bid at the 22nd edition of the annual Paris-based designer Christmas tree charity event organized by fashion journalist Marie-Christiane Marek.
“I love Christmas and I love Paris and when thinking of the tree this year I wanted to do an homage to Paris. First I was thinking of the Eiffel Tower, but I finally decided to go with Can-Can. And the skirt is the real tree. So she can dance through Christmas,” said Gaultier who attended the festive Friday-night event, held at the Théâtre des Champs-Élysées under the patronage of Pascal Morand, executive president of the Fédération de la Haute Couture et de la Mode, the Montaigne Committee, and Professor David Khayat, president of the Charter of Paris Against Cancer.

Generating the second highest bid in the sale, which raised around 60,000 euros in total, though the final tally is still being calculated, was a figurative gold tree from Christian Dior decorated with trinkets including a hot air balloon, a mermaid, tarot cards and a rose.
