Vogue Italia Puts Three Plus-Size Models On June Cover

“Always ready to up the body image ante, Vogue Italia's June issue celebrates curvy models, with a trio of plus-sized beauties posing for the cover. Tara Lynn, Candice Huffine and Robyn Lawley lean over plates of spaghetti in their lingerie, and inside, Marquita Pring is added to the mix for Steven Meisel's lens.
The glossy's editor-in-chief Franca Sozzani recently told Women's Wear Daily, "We help [plus-size women] dress fashionably. We say: It's pointless for you to buy leggings, take this because this will look good on you. We help them choose. We don't talk about diets because they don't want to be on a diet, but it's not a ghetto. Why should these women slim down? Many of the women who have a few extra kilos are especially beautiful and also more feminine."
In March, Sozzani launched a petition against pro-anorexia websites.”
So awesome!!!! THIS is what the world needs to see. THIS is Inspiration to young girls, teenagers, and all women alike that beauty is not defined by a number. This is here is, beautiful. Plus size, what's that? To me, these women are gorgeous, flawless, and downright stunning. I do not even think of the lame word our society has chosen to use; plus size. Blah! BLAH!
Perhaps if those behind the media advertisement industry would open their eyes and embraced all shapes, sizes, and nationalities then the beauty industry wouldn't be so warped with insanity. Perhaps then the unrealistic pressures wouldn't overflow upon young children, girls, women, boys and men who feel they must look a certain way to have value to them.
Perhaps eating disorders would not be increasing each and every year. The more we stand up for what TRUE beauty is then the better chance we have of raising young girls and boys with a strong self-esteem, worth, and authentic confidence.
THIS definitely blows my skirt up with excitement!
BEAUTY IS ALL AROUND US! DON’T YOU SEE?!
