V Magazine Size Issue

Due to hit shelves January 14th V Magazine's Size Issue (v63) has already began receiving whispers. The controversy issue showcases 5 plus size models with real curves. The controversial whispers stem from the comparison of two models: a plus size and straight model Christina Renn (established plus-size) and Jacquelyn Jablonski (newcomer-high fashion). Some are saying "why does there have to be a high fashion model side by sidewith a plus size model"? I say (being plus size) anything you can do I can do better and from the looks of it Christina Renn is a force to be wreckoned with!

The layout entitled "One Size Fits All" by Photographer Terry Richardson is absolutely amazing. This shoot is the equivalent of fresh air. The average woman is a size 14 however, you seldomly witness a magazine who has the guts to shoot A REAL WOMAN. Kudos to V Magazine for going out on a limb. Where they wrong for the comparison and contrast is to be determined by readers. In my opinion I think the images are creative and well-thought. The obvious purpose o the shoot to empower woman by pushing the message size does not matter. I love.....

Christina: 5 ft 9 in 36/34/41
Jacquelyn: 5 ft 9 in 32/24/34

  1. 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.
