Gaultier Chose Plus-Sized Models for Catwalk.

Fashion designer Jean Paul Gaultier proved that big is beautiful by using size 20 models for his 30th anniversary show during fashion week in Paris.

This comes after the concern over stick-thin "size zero" models, one of which died at a catwalk show after days without eating.

I love it! I love women with some size to them, and I think it is about time the fashion industry catches up to what real life is all about. To say that this is disrespectful and that the "real" models backstage didn't welcome a woman of this size is an ignorant comment. What makes you say she isn't a "REAL MODEL?" OK, perhaps she isn't a TYPICAL model...but she is on the runway, and you are complaining about it on a blog...who's got the last laugh there? I am all for REAL women being models...I would love to see more of this.

Am I the only one that thinks that this was disrespectful and not, as they would like you to believe, to show that big is beautiful. It's sad that this girl agreed to do this. I seriously doubt that the real models backstage welcomed her warmly.

I'm a big girl, but even *I* know that poncing around on a catwalk in skimpy lingerie is not something a chick my size should be doing!

I'm with the "normal-sized models" crowd. Or at least dress her in something a little more dignified than trampwear!

i think he was trying to prove that aesthetic value is not really all that plastic. granted, he was a bit manipulative in his execution; this woman would look a lot better if they'd given her a better fit. but it seems like he's trying to show the people who complained about the skinny models that even they "should" appreciate the fact of this woman on a catwalk intellectually, and not aesthetically. because the clothes don't fit her.

Proved something, but I don't think that was it.
