    Amazing piece, it's so strong, it's an armour a dress to fight, she's a warrior, and this performance is beutiful.

  2. oh, how I love that performance and costume!! ;) ;) and loved the sly & the family stone intro as well! ;D

  3. Yes, I absolutely loved the Sly & the Family Stone intro, and the obvious nods to Clockwork Orange. Wonderful, wonderful stuff!

  4. I remember when the film The Cook, the Thief, His Wife & Her Lover came out in the fall of 1989, the woman on the movie poster wore a similar top and of course, Jean-Paul Gaultier was the designer for the film. There was so much excitement and buzz about this tour's outfits - I LOVE THIS TOUR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
