Paper Fashion Puppets

The famous "paper doll" dresses worn by Lady Gaga and Italian stylist, Giovanna Battaglia, from avant-garde Japanese fashion label, Comme Des Garcons, have been shot in a demure fashion editorial that encapsulates the meaning behind the dress. To me, the dress symbolized both a return to a woman's childhood and the notion that fashion follows a "cookie-cutter sameness", as said by Bill Cunningham. The dress is evermore significant because it is designed by Junya Watanabe and Rei Kawakubo, who are both powerhouse designers in the avant-garde forces of fashion. Sophie Delaporte has done a wonderful job in backing up the unique beauty of the dress and how the boxy shape changes when a woman moves in the slightest, whilst keeping her signature ethereal style flowing throughout the photographs.
