London: Singer Beth Ditto, who is a size 28 was the star model for designer Jean Paul Gaultier at the Paris Fashion Week.

The `Gossip` frontwoman who had famously called `Chanel` honcho Karl Lagerfeld a "miserable little man", hit the catwalk in a tight gold confection, paired with fishnet stockings.

She proved a natural as she strutted and saluted her way down the catwalk for Gaultier during his spring-summer 2011 ready-to-wear show.

The singer had opened the show with a thunderous acappella performance.

The punk-infused show saw Beth followed by a series of models in Joan Jett spiky wigs, and hardcore gear that was on-trend with the punk collections shown earlier this week at
red-hot labels Balmain and Balenciaga.

The invitations has announced the show would explore the contrast between XXL and XXS but besides Beth and one other larger model, the others were the usual cast of waifs
who dominate the catwalks worldwide.
