TheBigIssue

V Magazine will dedicate their January 2010 issue to plus-size models(hate that term!).
The Chanel designer, Karl Lagerfeld, photographed the plus-sized models although in the past saying things such as:  “These are fat mummies sitting with their bags of crisps in front of the television, saying that thin models are ugly”
The issue will include models such as Crystal Renn(below), Amy Lemons and Ashley Graham who will appear clothed and nude.
This may be a step forward for healthier sized models but I personally believe that it is just to generate publicity and thus increase readership.
What do you all think?..

  1. 'plus size' models can look good too, but I don't think the fashion industrie would ever trade them with the 'thin' models..
    But Crystal Renn looks lovely.

  2. 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.
