Beth Ditto Claims Her Body Is An Art Piece (And Shows It Off) In This Month's BlackBook

God bless Beth Ditto. The original Gossip girl has been seemingly everywhere lately, and her recent BlackBook spread has the style icon doing it up in a McQueen sequined catsuit. But don't think it's just all sparkles and exhibitionism for Ms. Ditto. No, no, having a body like that is some serious business. "It's like carrying an art piece around with you all the time," she says. Oh, the burden! And for all you "gay men in the fashion world" who've turned "women into size 0 paper dolls," don't worry, Beth forgives you. "It's not the fault of the gay men," she says. But men everywhere aren't quite off the hook yet. "It's mostly men who aren't as open. I think men fear me sometimes." But perhaps this shot of Beth looking radiant in McQueen's butterfly print caftan will quell your terror—doesn't she look positively angelic?
