There are many, many things we love about Beth Ditto. Besides the rockin’ music she makes and the fabulous fashion she sports, she’s been a constant source of amazingness when it comes to feminist, LGBT, and body image issues. Given, then, our deep-seated love of her, you can probably imagine how thrilled we were for her when we found out that she recently tied the knot with her longtime girlfriend, Kristin Ogata. Congratulations! And may we say, Beth, that you looked FABULOUS in your wedding dress!
According to Vogue UK, Beth and Kristin’s wedding took place on the Hawaiian island of Maui. Kristin went for tailored white shorts-and-blazer look, while Beth walked down the aisle barefoot (love!) in a knee-length strapless dress with one heck of a fluffy, tulle skirt. The dress is from Jean Paul Gaultier—for whom, you might recall, the Gossip singer modeled in his Spring/Summer 2011 catwalk show. Garlands of flowers provided the finishing touch for both brides.
They look gloriously gorgeous and phenomenally happy—as well they should! Beth’s bandmates posted a message on their Facebook page detailing the event: “At long last, now that we have returned home and recovered from all the amazingness and had some time to bask in the afterglow, we are exited [sic] to share with you a pic or two from Beth and Kristin’s wedding! So much love and appreciation to all of our family and friends who celebrated with us! And a huge thank you to Jean Paul Gaultier for the dream-come-true dress!”
Congratulations to the newlyweds! Now when can we expect the next Gossip album?
