Bay seniors ( and I’m pointing my finger at you guys ) are missing a truly astounding event by insisting you would have to be caught dead at a fashion exhibit. You are so wrong. The Jean Paul Gaultier show now at the deYoung is more wanton, more imaginative and far sexier (think dominatrix) that anything anything the Mitchell Brothers ever imagined. The mannequins are alarmingly animatronic and actually move and speak. The clothes are eye popping. Imagine a long silk dress imprinted with a woman’s nude body and a triangle of jeweled beads where you’d expect to see pubic hair. Stuff like that. Runs through August 19.
