Around this time every very year, I have a little more than I should cause "it's the season to eat & be merry". Then January rolls around and I make a note to rid myself from some excess baggage (literally speaking).
Although I follow fashion trends, I've never had the desire to drop down to a "models impossible weight". Seriously? I'm no taller than 5'3, and enjoy rocking the healthy look. Now, I do have a few friends who have a healthy appetite and will never gain a pound and that's cool.....I mean that's part of their genetic make-up......
But for those who try to emulate the body-type of a runway model in an unhealthy way, then I find issues with that....
A few fellow bloggers have posted a photo shoot by VMagazine.com ( a hip, chic, fierce & fabulous magazine that is a platform for Fashion and all things that go with it. Think - "uptown meets downtown, celebrities mingle with total unknowns, high art converses with underground culture" - Ladies & Gents this ='s VMagazine).
The infamous photo shoot that has been circling the web is the One Size Fits All Shoot by Terry Richardson. Here you'll see some images embraces both model & plus sizes.
"IF IT'S BRIGHT ENOUGH, TIGHT ENOUGH, OR EYE-POPPINGLY PRINTED ENOUGH, ODDS ARE IT'LL WORK ON ANY FIGURE"
Jacquelyn Runway Model: 5 ft, 9 in; 32/24/34
Crystal Renn Plus Size: 5 ft, 9 in; 36/31/41
My personal thoughts are that the model on the right (Crystal Renn) looks
fab, fierce & healthy.......In fact, she looks like most women I know~
In addition to this shoot, VMagzine is releasing The Size Issue (Every Body is Beautiful) on January 14, 2010. I think it's gonna be quite the read.
Let me know how you feel about this peeps......
