Paris Jackson will “never forget” making her runway debut at Jean Paul Gaultier’s final couture show.
The French designer announced his retirement plans earlier this month and went out with a bang by holding a star-studded party-like fashion presentation during Paris Couture Week last week.
Models such as Irina Shayk, Gigi and Bella Hadid, and Karlie Kloss took to the runway at the Theatre du Chatelet, but the most surprising member of the catwalk line-up was Paris, who rocked a ’60s-inspired bohemian chic look which was comprised of a printed robe with a long train, a psychedelic patterned top, colourful snakeskin trousers, and wedge platform sandals.
Speaking to Miss Vogue about the experience, the actress/musician confessed how nervous she was during the casting process and just before her walk.
“I was very nervous during the casting, but once I had the final look on it felt pretty natural,” she explained. “I had been doing a few walks for Jean Paul when he said, ‘I’ll see you tomorrow.’ I almost screamed out of excitement, as that was his way of letting me know I got it. The whole experience is one I’ll never forget.
“I was very nervous during the moments leading up to the walk, but once I stepped out there, all the anxiety faded away. The rush I got afterwards was similar to the one I get when I get off stage after performing with my band.”
Paris, who is the daughter of Michael Jackson, shared that she hopes to do more catwalk shows in the future and will always be grateful for being part of such an epic fashion moment.
“I’m truly grateful to have been a part of such a memorable and legendary night that will most definitely go down in fashion history,” the 21-year-old added.
