Lured from his Parisian workshop, Jean Paul Gautier was on hand for the first rehearsal of the professional entrants in the "I'm too sexy.....Cato's Catwalk Contest. L'enfant terrible and sometime designer to such stars as Madonna and Marilyn Manson,
Gaultier worked feverishly to arrange the works of art that each entrant wore. First up on the catwalk was professional supermodel and sometime Gautier girlfriend Baxter, who frequently turns up as male and female in the designer's work -- so sleek is his/her style and so absolute is his/her refusal to adopt either sexual roll. Early in his/her career Baxter was quoted as saying it was important to him/her to maintain his/her identity as a feline first and a cat second. What this means, no one is quite certain, but it has caught the imagination of the feline fashion world.
