Who says plus-sized models were a fad? The larger than life Gossip frontwoman sashayed on the catwalk in Paris during Jean Paul Gaultier's fashion show. Beth wowed the crowd wearing a number of flamboyant dresses, which included a healthy dose of latex, as well as treating the crowd with an acapella vocal performance.

The invites promised that the show would explore the contrast between XXL and XXS, and Gaultier certainly lived up to this with Ditto dancing her way down the runway.

She joins the list of remarkable women that have paraded Monsieur Gaultier's wares in the past, including Madonna, Dita Von Teese and fellow plus sized lady Crystal Renn.

What do you think about Beth strutting her stuff for the French designer? Is the fashion industry really changing its attitude to size – or is it just a gimmick? Leave a comment and let us know what you think.
