Washington D.C. [USA], Jan 24 (ANI): Burlesque star Dita Von Teese walked the Jean-Paul Gaultier haute couture runway on Wednesday and also made her first guest appearance in the iconic French designer's musical production 'Fashion Freak Show.'
"Excited to be here in Paris during couture week, taking my fourth walk down the runway for Jean Paul Gaultier,” The Hollywood Reporter quoted Von Teese, as saying.
"Someone pointed out to me that Gaultier is the last designer to present the couture show on an actual stage-style runway, as all the other shows feature the models walking on the floor just in front of the guests. The runway was actually invented for burlesque in the 1930s, and then borrowed much later on in fashion, so this is a tradition that I love!,” she added.
Von Teese donned a nude-and-black tulle gown with a velvet cage bustier, wing-like adornment on the shoulder, and a train embellished with black plumetis embroidery.
According to a representative for Gaultier, the French couturier dubbed the dress "Diva Von Teese."
Gaultier had closed his ready-to-wear line last year to focus solely on haute couture and other projects. (ANI)
