What does Eurovision 2014 winner Conchita Wurst now have in common with Dita Von Teese and Beth Ditto?

They’ve all been given the utterly fabulous honor of closing out a Jean Paul Gaultier runway 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 added:

“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.”

Conchita wore a stunning floor length black and red dress, and by the looks of these photos we’re guessing she received a smashing reception.

Earlier this year Conchita and Gaultier walked the red carpet together at the Life Ball in Vienna, a preview of the good things to come:
