Models walk the runway at the John Galliano fashion show during Paris Fashion Week Menswear Autumn/Winter 2009 in Paris, France. While the majority of the menswear collections were as dreary as ever, Gibraltarian designer, Galliano took the ominous tone of the times and exaggerated it to almost ghoulish proportions. He set the stage for Gothic drama with a sparkling, hard lit, red runway flanked by a sea of candles. Vampiric models wore classically tailored separates and suits with romantic, almost Victorian flourishes. Backstage and out of context the deathly pale and Sabbatic goat-like models looked ridiculous but in Galliano’s theater they awed.
