If you just need to hear 22 minutes of joy, volubility and charm, try this Q interview with Gaultier from March of this year. (Well, he doesn't really join the interview until about 4 minutes in, so feel free to scroll ahead.)

He's such a genius. His ideas sometimes take years, or even decades, to trickle down into the vernacular, but they always do eventually.

I think he also did costumes for The City of Lost Children. I bought a sweater of his at a thrift store recently, even with some holes, and this makes me like it even more.
