Dita Von Teese Is Not Bothered by Designers Hiring Thin Models


She explains: "When it comes down to it, I believe that the designers who are hiring the models, they deserve to pick whatever kind of models they want. At the last Jean Paul Gaultier show, he opened up the show with Beth Ditto in a dress that he made for her, and I think he's really great because he shows different kinds of women. He'll put me on the runway, and I have a different body shape, and I'm about two feet shorter than those girls ... I also love when ... I watch these girls who are built like racehorses that are over six feet tall coming out in shoes that make them even taller. It's an incredible effect, so I can't ever blame them for not putting real women in their shows all of the time. It's about fantasy and spectacle." [HuffPo]
