Beth Ditto on fashion anarchy

Beth Ditto likes to make us think. First, appearing on the cover of LOVE magazine totally naked and now attending the shows in Paris and looking as curvy and fabulous as possible. She's been at Jeremy Scott, Loewe, Lagerfeld, rocking a rather fabulous dress by one of her favourite designers, Charles Anastase. Why? Well she loves fashion, she tells us, so that's why. She's always got something to say. And for Grazia only, she has news of her fashion line for Evans. ‘Oh I'm loving doing it. Its been such a fun project. Aren't you coming to New York to see me do my campaign?' she asked. That is the plan, we tell her... Then Beth tells us that she is loving seeing all the activists in the Paris streets. Student protesters campaigning against their university building being sold off. And the fur protesters that are at almost every show, causing the fur-wearing fashion-press to practically run past the protesters to avoid getting egged! It seems Beth approves. ‘Activism is so important, don't you think?' says Beth. ‘I don't want to be judgemental, but we need to start making a difference.' Let's hope no one turns up wearing fur at the Fendi store opening this week, where Beth Ditto is DJing. Now, given that's the slot filled by Karl's muse at the time, Amy Winehouse, last season, we reckon Beth's fashion influence might be about to spread even further...
