From their Special Rondes.
Here’s what I love about it.
We asked for equality and equality is what we got: Here is a X-gorgeous, normal-sized chick treated in just the same, undignified way, as any of her sister models.
The poor chick is shot in unflattering clothes, there’s an obligatory naked shot, the corny “leaping across the page (as you do) tra-la-la” shot, and a pair of extremely ugly shoes.
Is the current ubiquity of woman-sized models a fad or is it for real?
There has been an avalanche of positive press as a result of certain high profile publications attempts to become more representative (Brigitte Magazine banning models, V’s Size Issue, Vogue Italia’s Curvy website, have been met with much approval, just for e.g) but motive, I think, is unimportant.
What is important is that these images of larger women become commonplace and they begin to appear without fanfare and self-serving PR.
Spreads like this, (silly naked shot, ugly shoes and all,) are a good start.
