Ask and you shall receive.
In a truly enchanting dress that was much reminiscent of the intoxicating tulle gowns that were on display at the Christian Dior Haute Couture show earlier this year, Crystal Renn is shown here walking the catwalk at the Jean-Paul Gaultier Spring/Summer 2006 show in Paris yesterday.
Not only is the dress wonderfully feminine, but it shows off Crystal's plus-size figure in the most celebratory manner imaginable.
(Yes, that is indeed straw on the runway floor.)
Mr. Gaultier was obviously quite pleased that, for the first time in history, a Parisian designer presented a true goddess on the catwalk, because Miss Renn actually accompanied him for his own appearance on the runway, at the end of the show:
The once and future aesthetic is here--today.
We cannot offer Miss Renn sufficient congratulations for this extraordinary accomplishment. And we are delighted to see that the fashion world has finally taken the New Femininity to the next logical and inevitable step, and showcased designs of timeless beauty on the figure type that exhibits them best.
