EXCLUSIVE: The next top models – Jedward hailed as ‘twin angels’ by Jean Paul Gaultier

Forget when Derek Zoolander stormed Paris Fashion Week, Jedward brought their own Blue Steel magic when they hit the catwalk in Austria at the weekend.


Twins John and Edward Grimes, 23 – who originally shot to fame as contestants on the 2009 series of The X Factor – more than looked the part as they strutted their stuff in handmade garbs by top designer Jean Paul Gaultier during the Life Ball in Vienna.
‘Everyone is very happy, Jean Paul called us his twin angels!’ Edward told Metro.co.uk.

Adding: ‘The fashion world was Jedified! Who knows, we could be doing this as a full-time job and hitting Milan, Paris and New York fashion shows.’
In addition to modelling, Jedward also performed their 2011 Eurovision Song Contest entry Lipstick.

The Irish stars, who will soon been seen making their film debut in Sharknado 3 alongside Tara Reid, clearly made an impression on Gaultier, who is now following them on Twitter.


And it seems he wasn’t the only friends that the likeable duo made, with them telling us: ‘Backstage we got close to Paula Abdul and Kelly Osbourne and became good friends. We danced the night away with super models and felt accepted by all the fashion industry and Jean Paul’s team.
‘The editor of Italian Vogue gave us some tips on walking the catwalk and later on we had a dance off at the after party and talked fashion.’

Say what you like about John and Edward, but they are true go-getters and more power to them.

Here’s to their continued jedication in whatever they set their hearts and minds on.
