PARIS, Jan. 25 (UPI) -- French designer Jean Paul Gaultier used religion to inspire his designs while Giorgio Armani looked to India for his collection, presented in Paris.

Gaultier's haute couture collection evoked religious imagery of stained glass windows and icons. Some gowns were robe-like in jewel-toned silk and pastel chiffon with hooded cloaks, while others were detailed with angels and cherubs, The Telegraph said.

One model appeared in a long gown, printed like stained glass windows in a church, with a fabric rendition of a naked baby boy perched on her left shoulder.

Italian couturier Armani previewed his Prive collection at Paris' Museum of Modern Art. The collection was inspired by the costumes and regalia of the former maharajahs of India.

Among those in attendance for the Armani showing were Oscar-winning actress Cate Blanchett and actress Katie Holmes.
