Bravo Gaultier!

Jean Paul Gaultier's size 20 statement, image from

When Jean Paul Gaultier sent a size 20 model down the catwalk in lingerie, I thought it was it was one great action with a sense of both wisdom and humor. I do not think he was taking anything or anyone seriously... But somewhere does lie an important statement. After all this was the fashion designer who first dressed a man in a dress for the cat-walk in the mid-1980's.

No one has any authority to tell another what should be considered attractive.

Overweight replacing underweight is not a sensible statement in general fashion-wise or society-wise. It is however a great way of mocking the ridiculous establishment of political and social correctness - An excellent sense of humor with brilliant whit that leaves even the usual feminist critics totally speechless!
