PARIS, Oct 5, 2009 / FW/ — Before the start of the Jean Paul Gaultier show last Saturday, there were two paparazzi mayhem – outside the company’s headquarters at 325 Rue Saint Martin and inside just before the show began.

With Catherine Deneuve, Dita Von Teese, Janet Jackson, Katy Perry, Rihanna and Patrick Demarchelier sitting front row, TV crews have to do their interview in between camera flashes.

Catherine Deneuve who was wearing a citrus green silk trench coat from the Gaultier Paris collection chatted with Jean Paul Gaultier backstage before the start of the show. And so did Rihanna and Katy Perry.

Rihanna was wearing a charcoal wool gabardine bondage jacket while Katy Perry donned a black silk taffeta cross straps halter dress with sheer paneled hemline. Both were from Mr. Gaultier’s ready-to-wear collection.

Dita Von Teese who is a perpetual favorite among the TV crews did her interviews in a crepe/ velvet/ leather black dress, also from the Jean Paul Gaultier ready-to-wear collection.

Meanwhile, Janet Jackson who was wearing a beige silk taffeta trench coat sat front row with famed photographer Patrick Demarchelier at her side.
