By rights, Conchita Wurst should have faded into obscurity by now, following in the footsteps of other Eurovision winners. However, the drag artist’s career just seems to be going from strength to strength as yesterday she turned catwalk model during Paris Haute Couture Fashion Week.

With her trademark beard in place and her hair braided with beads, Conchita hit the runway at Jean Paul Gaultier’s autumn/winter 2014 show, modelling a gothic bridal dress complete with black veil.

The Eurovision 2014 winner was given the honour of closing the show, an act previously carried out by the likes of Dita Von Teese and Beth Ditto.

Speaking to the Independent about his booking of Conchita, the flamboyant Gaultier said: “I met Conchita two years ago [when] 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.

“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.”

But Conchita wasn’t the only surprise to delight us during the haute couture shows. From Karl Lagerfeld’s pregnant bride to Kendall Jenner storming the runway – plus some pretty showstopping outfits – we’ve put together a selection of the top moments in the gallery above.
