Jean Paul Gaultier earned the nickname l'enfant terrible many moons ago, but that doesn't mean his shenanigans are done. Not by a longshot. Even when a huge corporation like Coca-Cola hires him, he won't play by the rules. As creative director of Diet Coke, Gaultier has already released a creepy commercial featuring his model/doll, and now the print campaign has hit the web. Gay.net has shots of the advertisements which feature Gaultier's face superimposed on models in some of his sartorial signatures: maritime stripes and fetishwear. Stephane Sednaoui snapped the lively shots brimming with joie de vivre, and which hint at a blending of Gaultier's elfin persona with that of his two favorite muses--Andrej Pejic and Naomi Campbell-- only proving that the designer definitely won't be mellowing with age.
