At this weeks Paris Fashion week Gultier used a woman who clearly was not the model for his famouns perfume botel. Perhaps taking the Spanish Fashion week requirement (women must have a minumum Body Mass Index to model) to the next level Gaultier used a ++ size woman in a sexy 'lil number at his 30th anniversary collection.
Reactions have been mixed - one person says that now fat people are being exploited - but if you combine this statement with the Spanish decision then it appears that the fashion industry is - without formal organisation it would seem- doing something about the underweight debate.
The trend of using amaceated models may well be turning.
Many designers say that uber thin models make their clothes look the best, well, heres a challenge. Gaultier can make over weight women look good, surely the other designers can make at the very least regular sized woman appear beautiful. Or aren't they good enough?
Hopefully now teens and women worldwide will see that beauty is not a result of being MotorollaRAZR thin.
