Glam Plus: Curves Ahead at V Magazine


V Magazine's January 14th special "Size Issue" will feature a gorgeous spread of 5 plus-sized models — Candice Huffine, Marquita Pring, Michelle Olson, Tara Lynn and Kasia P. — titled "Curves Ahead". Shot by celebrated Norwegian photographer Sølve Sundsbø, the models wear clothes and shoes by Gucci, Versace, Dolce & Gabbana, and Sergio Rossi, just to name a few, and in one shot, nothing at all except for a pair of glittery Dior sandals.

Considering that the majority of non-model women, not just in the US but around the world, are not size 00s, 0s and 2s, it's a breath of fresh air and sends a clear message to embrace whatever size you are and declares that you don't have to dress in a mumu, just because you don't wear a sample size.

Here's a preview of the spread:

I've always been a fan of fuller-figured models. There's a great site with many images of plus-size models here:

They're all gorgeous.

The site's forum also has thought-provoking discussions about body image and the media.
