Jean-Paul Gaultier is going out with a bang. 

On Thursday, celebrities, designers and influencers galore gathered at the famous Theatre Du Chatelet in Paris to witness a show they won't soon forget. The crowds watched in awe as Bella HadidGigi HadidDita Von TeeseParis Jackson and so many more famous models strut across the catwalk in outrageous, beautiful ensembles designed by none other than Jean-Paul Gaultier himself.

But this show wasn't unforgettable for it's star-studded rotation of models or for having Boy George performing—that's par for the course. It's an unforgettable show because this marks the end of Jean-Paul's reign as the King of Haute Couture. After 50 years in the fashion industry, the renowned designer made his final bow. 

On Jan. 17, the 67-year-old revealed via social media, "This show celebrating 50 years of my career will also be my last. But rest assured Haute Couture will continue with a new concept."

According to The Guardian, his exit from haute couture doesn't mean he's hanging up his scissors anytime soon, instead he's going to shift his focus to his "high-end fashion and perfume business."

Nonetheless, his presence at the couture shows will be missed. After all, he's the designer who created Madonna's iconic cone bra and so many more historic looks.
