Rick Owens wasn’t the only designer to include a dance number at his spring/summer 2014 show. With his flair for drama and theatrics, Jean Paul Gaultier transformed his catwalk into a zesty, pumped-up dance competition, a la reality show Dancing with the Stars, complete with choreographed steps and a panel of judges. And the models served a greater purpose than a saunter up and down the runway. The designer tapped into their talents and coaxed out center stage stars. Karlie Kloss channeled Madonna, and Vogue-d like a pro. Coco Rocha (her new pixie made for the perfect swoosh) assumed the role of Danny Zuko from Grease and danced with a Sandy lookalike to “You’re the One That I Want,” which fell right in her area of expertise. The model previously told us, if not for modeling, she would probably dance professionally: “I was trained in Irish dancing for 12 years—I was a nerd. I can pick up whatever you want me to pick up. I’m very theatrical, even in my modeling and posing, and I feel like emotion is very involved in dancing, and once you get that, you’re not second-guessing yourself.” No wonder she rocked it!
