Changing Status Quo

I’ve written posts before about super-skinny models being banned from advertisements in Israel, the ban on model’s under 15 from Vogue, and the Dove Beauty Campaign. But I think this one takes the cake. The big, fat, Costco-sized, cake.

Beauty doesn’t have a size restriction. Little-by-little I think we’re making progress in showing women that beauty starts on the inside.

When I first saw this picture, I thought, “wow, she’s really pretty. And that color looks great on her!” This model, Robyn Lawley, is also 6’2″ (which makes her a whole 14 inches taller than me. wow) and she’s a size 16. And now, Lawley is the first “plus-sized” model for Australia’s publication of Vogue. On the cover. Not only is Vogue branching out from skinny models, but they’ve put a larger-than-typical “plus-sized” model on the cover. (The average “plus size” model is about a women’s size 10. The size that Marilyn Monroe was.)

What are your thoughts? Would you like to see more “plus sized” models in fashion?
