The economic news is dreadful.  Madoff stories are everywhere.  Winter blizzards are coming down from Palin's home state to freeze all the voters who dissed her in the election.   But there is always Paris and there will always be fashion.

Women's Voices for Change fashion followers have something wonderful to celebrate at the Paris Spring-Summer couture shows this week.  The Internet is buzzing with the news that the ever inventive Jean-Paul Gaultier broke the rules with one of our own. 

Ines de la Fressange, the  51-year-old stunner who used to earn her living on the catwalk, was chosen by Gaultier as just the woman to show off his highly sexual Spanish-themed clothes.

Photographs are everywhere of de la Fressange in a  long, black draped form-fitting dress with a deep neckline, fabulous hair that was styled but not done, and an extraordinary smile.

She clearly had a great time. In such a French way, she referred to the other models as "sexy little things".

We applaud Gaultier for his appreciation of  the beauty and form of the women in The New Menopause.
