Apparently Ashley Dupré Is a Runway Model Now


Last Fashion Week, poor Ashley Dupré's cameo in Yigal Azrouël's audience caused the designer to divorce public-relations firm People's Revolution. She was not his cup of front-row tea, but designer Bahar Shahpar apparently has a thing for her. Ashley walked in Shahpar's spring 2010 ecofriendly show the other day. Ecouterre reports:

Granted, Dupré definitely stood out from the rest of the waifish 16-year-old models—it was nice to see a model with a slightly more normal, a.k.a. curvy, body type. I almost didn’t believe the rumors at first, but once I checked out pics of Dupré’s forearm tattoos ... it’s pretty clear that this is her…

Last season she was shunned, this season she's adored! Between her and Amber Rose, we don't know how the runways are withstanding spring 2010's sheer model star-power.
