Curves Ahead: The Size Issue

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!

Chanel Iman for Deutsch Magazine

Chanel Iman is only 20 years old but holds the resume of a fashion icon. Strutting the runways of New York City, Milan, and Paris, gracing pages and covers of world renowned publications and joining the fellow angels of Victoria Secret, Chanel remains grounded and stays humble welcoming success and continually counting her blessings. She covered the November issue of Teen Vogue with model buddy Jourdan Dunn and now she vogues gracefully within the pages of Deutsch Magazine. The spread is so creative, I absolutely love the styling and the essence behind this shoot. I wish Chanel Iman much success in her future endevours, stay pretty and make that money.
