Beth Ditto and Girlfriend Make It Official
Over the weekend, Gossip’s Beth Ditto walked down the aisle with long-term girlfriend Kristin Ogata in Maui, Hawaii, where Ogata is from. The civil union — because Hawaii, shockingly, is not yet a state that allows full marriage equality — saw the blushing and barefoot bride in a lacy white tulle dress by Jean Paul Gaultier. The other bride, Ogata, opted for a white men’s look of shorts, a shirt, and a jacket.
Gaultier has a fondness for putting pop chanteuses on his runway, including Beth Ditto, who modeled his spring 2011 catwalk collection. “Congratulations to the newlyweds!” Gaultier tweeted following the ceremony. “All the best for Beth (and) Kristin! Love, JPG.”
Meanwhile, a post on the band’s Facebook page read: “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!”
(It would be hilarz if, when they were exchanging vows, instead of saying “I do,” Beth just said “ditto.”)
