Inès de la Fressange Steals The Show At Jean-Paul Gaultier Fashion Show

Who says models have to weigh 70 pounds and be under 20 years old? Not Jean-Paul Gaultier. The biggest attraction at one of his fashion shows recently wasn't Kanye West and Kylie Minogue, but rather 51-year old model Ines de la Fressange who strutted her stuff to the utter delight of the crowd. Here's the scoop from The Wall Street Journal:

"As always, this week’s Paris couture shows have been the stomping ground for stick-thin models with high cheek bones and clenched jaws.

But Jean-Paul Gaultier is not one to abide by rules. Despite the presence of singers Kanye West and Kylie Minogue, it was the former French supermodel Inès de la Fressange who stole the show.

As the voluptuous 51-year-old strutted down the runway, the crowd cheered this one-time French queen of the catwalk. Clearly moved, she turned to wave at old friends and slipped off a cream jacket in front of the cameras.

Mr. Gaultier, also caught up in the moment, chased the former supermodel down the runway and practically wrestled her to the ground during the final moments of the show catching her just before she fell.

Fashion models “are not just 14-year-olds,” Mr. Gaultier said later. “There are no [age] barriers to beauty.” The French designer explained that the curvy Ms. de la Fressange embodied the sexuality demanded his raunchy Spanish themed show, which also featured high-waisted pinstripe pants for women, suspenders and elbow-length gloves."

    She is just "okay" in the face. I think she is pretty but not beautiful. I see many that are more attractive in the face. Nice figure...but average. At least not stick thin. It's amazing what a team of make-up artists, and stylists can do to someone. Plastic surgery???
