Curves Ahead: The Size IssuePosted: January 5, 2010
She’s gorgeous, she’s glamorous, she’s sexy but the only obstacles in her way of success are the socially-acceptable prejudices that a curvy woman isn’t as industrial as a size “barely” 0 model. Even with a toned body, perfect posture, skin, and unique features, it is still so difficult for a plus size/curvy model to find work in this industry. “Who wants to see a fat women on the cover of a magazine” the very words of papa fashion Karl Lagerfield and I totally agree. So now show me the jobs for the ladies above size 2 with flawless bodies, a little meat on their bones and is uber talented ready and willing to rock the spreads and stand on the forefront of our ad campaigns?; Because last I checked “fat” and “curvy” are two different aspects of size. In my opinion size doesn’t matter and if the selection of clothing is as versatile as designers claim then fashion can flatter a multiple of figures. So with the recent raves and rants of plus size models do you really think the demand for curvy girls in the industry is improving? Well V magazine is taking a stand and will be featuring plus size models in their latest issue hitting stands later this month. Photographed by Solve Sundsbo, the models Candice Huffine, Marquita Pring, Michelle Olson, Tara Lynn, and Kasia P., Designers Gucci and Guess. An entire issue devoted to curvy women…Now isn’t that interesting? Thoughts? Comment!
