WAIST BASKET: Who says you need a tiny waist to wear a corset? Certainly not voluptuous singer Beth Ditto, who on Tuesday unveiled a limited-edition T-shirt done in collaboration with Jean Paul Gaultier, the man behind Madonna’s flesh-toned lingerie costumes.
Here the cinched item floats like a decal on a black background, the rear view embroidered with real laces.
The $165 item — which can be worn with leggings or as a dress — was Gossip’s front woman’s way of announcing an upcoming plus-size clothing line.
She disclosed the plans on her Web site, saying the full collection would be released in February and “inspired by her love of vintage.”
Ditto appeared on Gaultier’s runway on 2010, telling WWD: “It was frightening and amazing, the way everything should be.”
