Jean Paul Gaultier’s Spring 2011 so far has been the most size diverse runway show for the season, not only did he have Crystal Renn walk the runway he also included Marquita Pring and The Gossip lead singer Beth Ditto. Gaultier was inspired by Joan Jett, the models were rocking black wigs, bold jewelry and Doc Martens.
Marquita spoke with MP about her experience walking the JPL runway.
“The entire experience felt like a dream. I am so honored to have been a part of Gaultier’s show. He’s notorious for putting women of all shapes and sizes on his runway and to have been included in the show was such a rush.
He’s one of the designer’s revolutionizing the industry these days by showing that you don’t have to be skinny to be able to wear beautiful, sexy designer clothing.
It all seemed to flash by in a matter of minutes but will truly be an experience to remember for the rest of my life.”
Crystal Renn proved to be an expert walking down Gaultier’s runway for the second time (first time was back in 2006) she was featured in a black trench and cropped Joan Jett styled hair.
Beth Ditto had the honors of opening the show and joined Gaultier for the final walk down the runway.
