Makeup artist Tom Pecheux explained the inspiration for the look of the Jean Paul Gaultier spring show came from numerous sources, including German singer Klaus Nomi and the graphics used for France's public radio and television provider, ORTF, from the Sixties and Seventies.

"We ended up going with lines and things like that," explained Pecheux, who focused on eyes with black liner.

Odile Gilbert, meanwhile, created the hairstyles — which combined square buns with curvilinear details around models' faces — for the show.
