Paris Fashion Week Presents Beth Ditto for Jean-Paul Gaultier

Gossip singer Beth ditto strutted down Paris’s catwalk this week for Jean-Paul Gaultier modelling once again two of his beautiful dresses. Beth also sung at the fashion show and received huge applause. The invitation card for Jean-Paul stated the aim was to show beauty between XXS and XXL.

The plus sized diva who designs her own range of clothing for British retailer Evans opened and closed the shows this weekend.

However this is not the first time Jean-Paul has used plus sized women on his catwalk during a fashion week. Models such as Velvet d’Amour and Johanna Dray did this for Jean-Paul 10 years ago.

The sized 26 star has become a fashion icon and is a regular guest at Paris, London, New York and Milan fashion shows.

Beth Ditto strutted down the run way modelling a 3D JPG dress made for this year, while the audience wore 3D glasses to appreciate the full effect of the dresses print.

To show that Ditto mattered JPG wore a gossip T-shirt as Beth greeted him on stage with a glass of champagne.

So is this just a one off or is the world finally ready to embrace fully figured fashion. We’ll just have to wait until next season.
