Gaultier tried to crossover to a Singing Career in 1988

Much before Tom Ford crossed over to a film-making career with a sleekly directed The Single Man or even before Issac Mizrahi crossed over to be TV Host, the genius, that is Jean Paul Gaultier decided to crossover into a singing career. The ladies at Jezebel dug up a true gem: Jean Paul Gaultier’s 1988 dance single “How To Do That.”

This video, featuring Ann Magnuson and a young Naomi Campbell, who dance while Gaultier repeats “How to do zat” over and over, is all that remains of that attempt. I am really at a loss for words on this one, but here’s a few that come to mind: dancing scissors, Naomi Campbell, cone bras, male model in a mesh crop top. And genius. 

By the way, JPG used to co-present a show in the early 90s, called Eurotrash. You can watch the JPG Video on Youtube:
