Yesterday, Eurovision 2014 winner Conchita Wurst closed the show for Jean Paul Gaultier’s Autumn/Winter 2014-2015 Haute Couture Paris fashion show in a gorgeous black, red and gold floor-length gown.

Being given the closing spot at a fashion show is the highest honor a model can receive, usually reserved for the designer’s favorite or the most famous model. For Conchita to be placed in a such a prestigious position for her modeling debut marks a huge step forward in her career.

Dita Von Teese and Beth Ditto are a few other big names who have been given this honor in Gaultier’s show.

Gaultier told The Independent, “I met Conchita two years ago she came to one of my couture shows. I loved her look and when I heard that she will represent Austria for the Eurovision Song Contest, I was delighted. When she won I was crazy with joy.”

He continued, “I always say that beauty is difference and Conchita has shown us all that she is unstoppable. And she looks great in couture; she is a real couture woman.”

Earlier this year Conchita walked hand-in-hand with Gaultier on the red carpet for Life Ball in Vienna, Austria. Conchita wore a beautiful, off-the-shoulder fishtail dress and arguably out-shined every other person to walk the red carpet.
