And over to Paris for the menswear. Yes, really...
With Veronica Lake-style waves tumbling over fine features, the model who closed Jean-Paul Gaultier's Bond-themed show yesterday cut a truly stunning figure. Nothing unusual there, you might think.
This, after all, is the glamorous world of catwalk fashion.
But there was something out of the ordinary at play: this was no Bond girl, but Andre Pejic, the fashion world's androgynous model of the moment.
Other models also sported long, waved hair, but it was Pejic, a Serbian-Australian whose family fled the war-torn Balkans in the Nineties, who stole the show as he closed it in a tiger-print fur jacket, gold belt and high heels, and carrying a golden gun.
Gaultier is known for breaking boundaries, and for perfecting the art of androgynous tailoring, and the vision of Pejic in a perfectly cut tuxedo is up there with many of his boldest, and coolest, statements.
Gaultier's autumn/winter 2011 menswear collection played with conventional notions of the overt masculinity that the double agent usually represents – featuring more obviously macho men in dark, action-hero clothes such as leather jackets, alongside the glamorous Pejic.
Pejic is one of the hottest models around right now. He appears in the Marc by Marc Jacobs ad campaign, shot by photographer Jurgen Teller, as well as in the Gaultier campaign alongside supermodel Karolina Kurkova.
He is part of a trend for androgynous models alongside Lea T, a transsexual with flowing brown hair who appeared in a Givenchy ad campaign and is a friend of the label's designer, Riccardo Tisci. Lea T said she agreed to star in the campaign because "I thought this would be a nice message for another tranny: 'Look we can be the same as other boys and girls.'"
