Conchita Wurst Struts Down Runway for Gaultier: VIDEO


In addition to being the winner of this year’s Eurovision singing contest, Conchita Wurst can now add couture fashion model to her CV after making her debut on the runway for Jean Paul Gaultier. Wurst and Gaultier first met two years ago at another of Gaultier’s shows, the designer told The Independent. Gaultier was instantly struck and inspired by the Austrian drag queen.

“I always say that beauty is difference and Conchita has shown us all that she is unstoppable.” Said Gaultier “[S]he looks great in couture; she is a real couture woman.”

In the past Gaultier has worked other iconoclastic beauties such as singer Beth Ditto, and drag queens Juanita More and Andrej Pejic.

    looks like Austria’s best export shaved for the occasion, she looks better. i think her selection in Eurovision is the only time England and France voted together for her, sadly Germany and Italy did not. Brava.

  2. Really? says

    Is Andrej Pejic a drag queen or transgender or androgynous? It’s one thing for mainstream publications to casually misuse these labels but more should be expected from an LGBT site.

  3. Jude says

    Yeah, Andrej Pejic is not a drag queen.

    I knew this would happen the moment Conchita became a phenomenom (and that was before the final). JPG has always been a huge fan of Eurovision and what Conchita represents is right up his alley. I’m happy for Conchita about this.

    @ CD

    Actually the UK and Italy (along with 11 other countries) gave Austria the maximum 12 points, France gave them 10 points and Germany 7.

    You are not much of a Eurovision expert, are you? :)
