‘WHAT’S WRONG WITH OUR BODIES ANYWAY?’ PLUS MODEL MAGAZINE ANSWER THIS PRICKLY QUESTION IN THE NUDE.

This, from Fashionista: "In its January issue, Plus Model Magazine just published an editorial lensed by Victoria Janashvili and featuring plus-size model Katya Zharkova. In it, Katya, who is totally naked, is surrounded by various facts and figures about size and models."

Some points: I suppose as they are talking about bodies, it makes sense to show bodies, but .... oh dear. WHY must "plus size" models always be shot naked?

... and can someone explain the point of this image to me?


A thought: "Plus" Magazine would make a much more powerful point if they debunked one very pervasive fashion myth, one that ensures that skinny women are the only ones who can be "proper" models: That clothes look better on very thin girls (not women). For that, the chicks would have to be CLOTHED!

    Um. Actually, if you look through the magazine, you’ll see that they have published a more spreads which feature women wearing clothes. But, of course the naked snaps get more attention (this is, after all, the internet and it seems you can only get people’s attention with nude shots). Anyhoo, the rest of the mag is available here:
