Take that, size zero!

Designer Jean Paul Gaultier gave curvy girls a major fashion shout-out by enlisting plus-size singer Beth Ditto to walk his Paris runway over the weekend.

The voluptuous Gossip crooner -- who designs a plus-size range for British retailer Evans -- opened and closed the show while modeling Gaultier's creations.

Rocking a blunt black bob and wild sci-fi-esque blue eye shadow, the size 26 star also sang an Ike and Tina Turner classic for the well-heeled crowd.

Ditto -- who once appeared on Love's cover in the nude -- isn't the only curvy beauty to hit the runway.

Plus-size supermodel Crystal Renn -- who also stars in Gaultier's Fall 2010 campaign -- hit Zac Posen's runway -- and let's not forget pregnant Miranda Kerr's turn on the Balenciaga catwalk.

So, is this just a passing fad, or is the fashion world finally ready to embrace full-figured beauty? Guess we'll find out next season.

Meanwhile, Fashion Week has also put senior citizen models front and center.
