Curves on the Couture Catwalk?

Linda Grant posted this week about Jean Paul Gaultier using 51 year old Ines de la Fressange, former Chanel muse and face of the iconic Marianne, on the catwalk for his couture show.

She looks pas mal.
I especially like this remark

Fashion models “are not just 14-year-olds,” Mr. Gaultier said later. “There are no [age] barriers to beauty.” The French designer explained that the curvy Ms. de la Fressange embodied the sexuality demanded his raunchy Spanish themed show, which also featured high-waisted pinstripe pants for women, suspenders and elbow-length gloves.


Compared to who exactly? mean the model for the Akris print ad.

Because you can't have enough of Concentration Camp Chic!
