Celebrities and Diet

After the Madrid Mayhem with the banning of models under a BMI of 18, Fashion designer Jean Paul Gaultier made his own statement by putting a size 20 model on the runway. Wearing a risky black corset, the plus-sized model stole the attention away from all the other waif-like catwalk girls. Gaultier’s 30th anniversary show during fashion week in Paris proved big can be beautiful and can also wear couture.

Known as one of the Fashion Capitals of the world, Paris dismissed the idea of placing a weight requirement on its models. The famous designers proclaimed their garments were made for the extremely slender for no reason other than they look better on the runway. Gaultier proved otherwise by placing a plus-size model among the rest of his walking skeletons.

If most of consumers cannot fit into high end retail, why are the designers still insisting on showing how good their clothes fit on child-like bodies? I hate skinny jeans, not because I think they are ugly (I don’t) but because I would never look good in them. I look at clothes on the runway and say, “That looks cute.” But in my head I’m thinking, “I could never wear that, next…”

Gaultier is well respected and has been around the fashion industry for a long time. Let’s hope the other designers follow his lead and begin putting more models on the runway with fuller figures. Let’s hope designers begin to learn how to make clothes meant for average sized women too. Little steps in the right direction will produce big changes. What do you think about Gaultier’s bold statement?
