Jean Paul Gaultier – or at least a robotic impersonation of the legendary designer – is welcoming guests at the Architecture and Design Museum in Stockholm in celebration of the ongoing fashion exhibition dedicated to the artistic genius' work. With work's ranging from Madonna's legendary bra to the worlds cutest teddy bear, the Gaultier lookalike was the least surprising curiosity.

What an honour that Jean Paul Gaultier has taken time out of his hectic schedule to welcome every single visitor to his new exhibition at the Architecture and Design Museum in central Stockholm.

He's wearing stripes (of course) and talks wistfully about his teddy - his first muse - the tiny stuffed bear on which he first worked a newsprint conical bra (way before Madonna).

It's not really him, of course, but a talking mannequin superimposed with Jean Paul Gaultier's face. The words are his though. So is the sentiment.
