woman with halo
well, galliano may have gone all out in his interpretation of japonisme, but jean paul gaultier has given us a glorious revisit of mucha.
our hats have often served as halo, and in japan, the greater the halo, the more prestigious the courtesan.
and then of course there's often been umbrella as halo.
but easily the most notable is halo as halo itself.1
