Jean Paul Gaultier said his new Target collection will still "shock parents, shock teachers," as is his way. "What I am doing [for Target] is still Gaultier, very Jean Paul Gaultier, it's in my style. But it's different — clothes for more people and less expensive and more affordable, but still modern. It's nice. It's an element of surprise they want, so that's good," Gaultier said last night at the opening of artist Nicolas Pol's "Martus Maw" exhibit, curated by Vladimir Restoin Roitfeld. Gaultier is primarily in town to work in the Target offices, but wants to get around town and enjoy himself, too. "I want to see movies — Precious, and the one with Jim Carrey — A Christmas Carol. I want to see that. It looks really funny and with a lot of ideas and quite like dreaming." Jean Paul Gaultier likes Christmas movies? "Well ... yes, I love them," he admitted. His favorite Christmas film, rest assured, is still a melancholy French one: "Who Shot Father Christmas, of course." Gaultier's also been an accidental exhibitionist in New York. "You know, I'm in the hotel, what is the name of it — the Standard. So, I am in the bedroom where it is an exhibitionist event!" he said. "I did not know that, so I did exhibition without knowing what I was doing. I did not know people could see. But, nobody was looking. It's quite hilarious, it's excellent."
