vogue australia caused some controversy (both positive and negative) by including a 10-page editorial of plus-sized models. according to fashionologie, this is the first time in its 52-year history that the magazine has ever featured a model of above-average size. one wouldn’t think that [in 2011] this would be ground-breaking, but it is.
i would love to commend vogue australia, but what took it so long? personally, i prefer looking at a curvy shape, and plus-sized models exude a sexiness and comfort about their bodies that you just don’t get from the brooding human hangers of their thinner counterparts. to see this editorial in-person, the september issue is on stands now.
katieparks said:body image is weird here, at least coming from a US perspective. the sizing is all a lot smaller and there aren’t any young fashion brands catering to plus sizes. i haven’t been here that long but that’s what i feel so far. it’s just weird.
