If anyone doubted John Paul Gaultier’s dedication to creating beautiful pieces for all women, Beth Ditto’s appearance should assuage those doubts. Gaultier created a couple of pieces for the size 28 woman in us all and Ditto proudly wore it. Ditto of rock group, The Gossip, fame made her appearance during Gaultier’s Paris show in textured pink floral corset, fishnet stockings and black mary janes. Although many appreciated Gaultier’s show and homage to plus sized models some wanted more shows dedicated to the everyday woman (particularly the size 10s as opposed to the 0s).
“Instead of a fuss being made about a few cause célèbre exceptions on the catwalk, what I’d really like instead is for most models to be a [UK] size 10 rather than a size 8,” British Vogue editor Alexandra Shulman, told The Guardian.
