Look! ‘Fat-pack’ mezzo goes modelling for Voguemain
In a studied riposte to the London critics who damned her at Glyndebourne as ‘dumpy’ and worse, the Irish mezzo Tara Erraught has gone walking the catwalks in the new Vogue.
Decked out in Dolce & Gabbana, she tells the fashion rag: ‘I’m a 36DD but that said, 60 per cent of the year I play men and boys because I’m a mezzo-soprano and a lot of older operas were written for castrati… For those, I’m nearly always in a bust-flattener…. I’m so used to being cinched in that I’ve started wearing belts over dresses.’
