What You NEED to Know About Beth Ditto

by Morgan Kairey November 02, 2015

Beth Ditto Plus Size Runway

You may know Beth Ditto as the lead vocalist in her band, “The Gossip” but she is becoming more and more prominent in the world of fashion.  Her bold style matches her bold music and vocals.  She’s been featured in the magazines, Love, Dazed and Confused, and Bust.  Her first major runway appearance was at the Spring 2011, Jean Paul Gaultier show, but her feature in the Marc Jacobs Spring 2016 show is what really caught our eye.  She closed the show in a silver and white, off the shoulder, sequin embellished gown. 

Ditto has always been pretty open about her size, and has been known to insult Karl Lagerfeld and Kate Moss for being “boring” and “miserable.”  But she decided to embrace the fashion world.   In an interview with The Guardian , she said “I have no control over what people think of me but I have 100% control of what I think of myself, and that is so important. " Plus Size Mirror

She continued to tell the blog, Into the Gloss , “being a big person – being a fat girl in this world – is really awesome.  It feels good to be myself.  I think it’s a special position to be in, and it’s given me a lot of perspective into people’s opinions and how they interpret things.  I know when something is my problem or someone else’s.  It’s this whole element of therapy that you get for free where you’re like, ‘Is this a social problem or is this my problem?’…Words don’t bother me, intentions do."

Buzzfeed got it right when they said “She doesn’t just influence fashion, she completely embodies it.” They  put out an article called“ 18 Fashion Rules from Beth Ditto ,” and now here is how we follow these rules.
