No Gossip at Topshop

The Gossip front woman Beth Ditto was recently asked to play a gig at one of Topshops flagship stores but refused as she thought it would be hypocritical as Topshop didn't cater for her size.

15 stone Beth Ditto offered to produce her own range of clothes - giving them the opportunity to offer a hot brand to larger sizes, but Topshop did not respond and instead have launched their Kate Moss line making it clear where they stand on the plus size V size zero debate.

'Give me the job. I want to design. I want you to make clothes for big girls - big boys. I want you to make big sizes,' she said.

Earlier in the year Kate Moss won sexiest female award at NME - beating controversial size 20 Beth Ditto who was also nominated.

So for all the talk - the high street and media have not progressed enough to offer more than lip service to the plus sizes. To find fashion for plus sizes without the politics visit
