Gossip’s powerhouse frontwoman, Beth Ditto, attended the 24th annual GLAAD Media Awards on Saturday night and showed off her svelte new figure, walking the red carpet in a form-fitting black dress.
The indie-rock singer walked arm-in-arm with her fiancé, Kristin Ogata at the Los Angeles awards ceremony, which paid tribute to inclusive media representation of the lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender community.
Ditto has long been an outspoken advocate for gay and lesbian issues, and has literally been a postergirl for plus-size women, appearing naked on magazine covers and contributing to an advice column on body image for renowned British newspaper The Guardian.
She and her fiancé are preparing for a June wedding, reports the Daily Mail, so it may be that Ditto has been slimming down in preparation for the big day, as many brides do.
Beth wasn’t the only one looking sharp at the GLAAD Awards--President Clinton was on hand to receive the Advocate for Change award with his daughter, Chelsea. Elle Fanning, Chaz Bono, and Kirsten Dunst also attended and showed their support.
