holy twenty ten

V Magazine's spring issue is unveiling 5 fabulously scintillating slash scorchingly hot full-figure models. Bigwigs such as Bruce Weber (photographer) and Karl Lagerfeld (shockingly) contributed to the issue christened The Size Issue: The Shape of Things to Come.

In one article, One Size Fits All, V made the contentious decision of comparing a full-figured model with a 'normal' one. A discomforting paradigm at the very least but I have to say, eureka!!! The bodaciously bigger babe (Crystal Renn) is my fave!!! Which I'm hoping was the point.

Another article, Curves Ahead, is, in an insubstantial word, wow. Just wow. Jaw-dropping. Mind-blowing. Stunning. Finally! To borrow from a beloved website Jezebelwho puts it so well, "These pictures are a great argument against those in the fashion industry who would say that they couldn't possibly put a plus-size models in their magazine/ad campaign/runway show because there just aren't enough good models over a size 8 to go around." Here we have Tara Lynn, Candice Huffine, Marquita Pring, Michelle Olson, and Kasia Pilewicz.

  1. I've always been a fan of fuller-figured models. There's a great site with many images of Crystal and other plus-size models here:


    They're all gorgeous.

    The site's forum also has thought-provoking discussions about body image and the media.
