Jean Paul Gaultier Laughs in the Face of the Skinny Model Debate
After all of the very serious debate surrounding the "skinny model" issue over the past few weeks, it's nice to see a designer with a sense of humour, and leave it to Jean Paul Gaultier to be that designer. JPG sent a plus-sized model down his Paris catwalk this week: only one, mind - the rest of the collection was showed off by the same skinny malinkies we're used to. He may have ditched the curves for the rest of the show, though, but Jean Paul didn't ditch the humour. This was his 30th birthday collection, and it contained a look back at some of his most famous pieces, such as That Conical Bra from Madonna's Blonde Ambition tour. Take a look after the jump.
