Jean Paul Gaultier

Did you ever imagine you’d be at the centre of a scandal?

“I’ve been at the center of scandals all my life! What has changed over time is that happy scandals are rare nowadays. Everyone’s so solemn. We have to keep reminding ourselves that scandal can also be light-hearted.”

Madame la Ministre

Did you ever imagine you’d be at the center of a scandal?

“Well, let’s say I'm not surprised! I have always done exactly as I please. Being clever helped me through my studies, for sure, but I’m also imaginative and undisciplined. People are boring when they’re too serious.”

Guy

Did you ever imagine you’d be at the center of a scandal?

“I’ve seen a lot of things happening in the back seat. I’m not allowed to say too much – and I wouldn’t want to – but what I saw in the rearview mirror made me realize that gender doesn’t really matter when the lights are low... They had a great time in that car, which is always nice to see – it was difficult for me to keep my eyes on the road!”

Tamy

Did you ever imagine you’d be at the center of a scandal?

“I always had this androgynous look so I didn't need to go looking for scandal – it found me! It caused a sensation overnight, but everyone quickly got used to it. I don’t care – I have a lot more fun than others and that’s all that’s important to me!”

An Expert Speaks Out

Jean Paul Gaultier - L'avis de l'expert

Jean Paul Gaultier

“What I instantly liked about Madame La Ministre is how she loves to cause a scandal. If a snatched photo reveals what a party animal she is, she won’t deny it or go into fits of rage… more likely fits of laughter! I also love how she disregards preconceived ideas – she doesn’t believe that being talked about too much will terminally damage your reputation. Everything’s so serious these days. Everyone’s afraid of causing a scandal. But not her! Madame La Ministre’s light-hearted attitude is a breath of fresh air in a world where any bad behavior is seen as a disaster. I’ve met quite a few bold, unconventional and decadent characters, and they all have one thing in common: they couldn’t care less what people think of them. Which is a good policy. Probably the smartest!”
