A few weeks before the start of Dancing with the Stars, Jean Paul Gaultier shares his impressions of this more than promising season 11.
From Friday, September 17, viewers will find season 11 of Dancing with the Stars. The few new faces of the jury are among the novelties of this edition. Jean-Paul Gaultier is one of them and entrusts the columns of Télé 7 jours about this unprecedented experience.
If the enfant terrible of fashion has always been a big fan of the show, he had to do it several times to be featured on the show’s jury: “I have already been approached several times as that candidate, even to make costumes. The idea amused me, but I don’t dance well enough and I’m too old for it! He reveals to the magazine.
Finally, the famous designer accepts the suggestion with a lot of tweezers: “When I accepted, I wanted to say, that I did not know if I was completely legitimate. »The designer confides in the striped sweater.
When Télé 7 jours asks Jean-Paul Gaultier if he will be a “rather nice” or a “strict” juror “The Creator is more lenient and ensures that he will pay much more attention to the progress of the candidates:” The dance is a very tough discipline and I have great respect for professional dancers who often have to lead an ascetic life. What about those who are non-professional dancers and will try to reach a level that they could not have reached! He replies.
It looks like the cast of this new season doesn’t have to fear the Creator. Jean-Paul Gaultier therefore presents the charm of spontaneity and emotion of technical performance, as he always did in his artistic work. Which does not make him less sensitive to the gestures of the dancers: “Come to think of it, I’ve always been very careful with the gestures in my work. I selected models that couldn’t “walk” in order to avoid clichés and showing women closer to life, “he recalls.
»With a lot of tweezers«! “With a grain of salt” or “with a lot of hesitation”, you would have understood. But the mixture of the two expressions no longer means anything. </ The information collected through this form is subject to computer processing allowing Reworld Media Magazines and / or its partners and service providers to send vouchers promotional plans and offers.
