I love to see people breaking the mold of what hasn’t been done or what is impossible. I especially love to see Full Figured women being portrayed beautifully. Models come in all sizes, ethnicities, and shapes. Don’t starve yourself because some one told you that you need to lose some weight to model. RIDICULOUS
Vogue Italia Magazine has been setting a lot of milestones lately. They are now featuring full figured models in the newest edition. The pictures may be a little risque but I think they are gorgeous. They truly represent the average size woman in the US. I’m sure these magazines are gonna fly off the shelves.
I hope to see this trend continue. Beauty is indeed in the eye of the beholder.
Take a peek at the magazine here at cdn.mediatakeout.com/49344/vogue_magazine_releases_its_new_full_figure_issue____and_some_of_these_thick_models___are_king_magazine_worthy.html
Ladies and gents, what do you think of the women in these photographs?
Aspiring models: let this be the inspiration that you needed to not give up and to fully pursue your dreams of modeling.
Let me know if you have any questions.

One of my favorite Plus Size Models, the gorgeous Crystal Renn, is in the news again…
The last time I heard from her she was promoting her book called Hungry. Now she is back in the news catching heat for her shrinking waist line. Upon first glance at Crystal, she doesn’t look like the typical (standard) 10/12 Plus Size Model. I think she looked great before her metamorphosis and looks wonderful now. I think this is a major milestone for all aspiring Plus-Size models of the world cause if Crystal can do it, so can you. The industry is ever evolving and this is just more proof in the pudding. After all, women are judged by their weight whether you are a model, celebrity, or the average girl next door. The world is so superficial and I don’t see that changing anytime soon.
The new plus-size standard should be celebrated in my opinion. One must also realize that Crystal came into the industry as the traditional size and has managed to change that standard. I guarantee that would not have been possible the other way around.
I can relate to Crystal a little bit cause I recently got a call from one of my agents about the possibility of being a size 8 “fit model”. I wasn’t able to secure that job because my size fluctuates between a 6-8. There is high pressure to maintain a certain size and stats. I totally understand how a model can become obsessed trying to maintain a certain stature. It gets to the point where you are weighing yourself everyday and you are walking around with a calorie book in your purse. I’ve seen some models do it, but they literally are vegan and don’t eat out at all.
The bottom line for me is being healthy. Looking at someone you can’t tell if they are healthy or not or even in shape for that matter. Starving yourself is not cool. I don’t believe in diets and I eat what I want, when I want it, in moderation of course. I do believe in cleansing the body every now and then but that is it. I am relatively tall, but a little curvy. Join my facebook fan page and see some pictures of me.
I salute Crystal Reen. Let’s stop judging her. If she is taking the healthy approach, I don’t see anything wrong with it.

Finally at last the Fashion industry which is manly dominated is starting to recognize the curves on a woman’s body. This makes me want to do a split which I haven’t done in over 17 years. The average woman size in American is that of a 12/14. You would think that if the designers really focused on that the world would be a much better place. Everyone would be happier and there profits would go through the roof. Slowly but surely I think they are finally starting to get the message. Consumers now are smarter and very vocal when it comes to their “spending dollars”. If consumers keep complaining about the images in the media they will have no choice but to listen.
This is truly a step in the right direction and a major win for all of the plus size and aspiring models out there. Don’t force yourself to conform to be a size that you were not naturally born to be. It’s not sexy and it sure is not healthy. Plus size model Crystal Renn is the best role model on the planet for the full-figured model. If you don’t know this woman, I encourage you to look her up. She was once a thin model because she starved herself and now has a very successful career as a plus size model.

You are beautiful just the way you are, so embrace yourself and your curvaceous body. Don’t conform to anyone’s standards that involves you altering your body in an unhealthy manner. Love Yourself…

Fashion designer Mark Fast recently showcased his spring/summer line and featured plus size models Crystal Reen and Lizzie Miller. You may recall both of these women were featured in Glamour magazine last year creating a buzz for full figured models.
You can see Crystal strutting her stuff in a red dress and Lizzie in a navy blue dress. Both women look great but not as beautiful as they typically look. This show really wasn’t glamourous and the hair and makeup was natural and low maintenance.
Shout out to Mark Fast for deciding to showcase these gorgeous plus size models. Let’s just hope that the trend to use them continues in 2010. It’s great to see the “real woman” represented as the average size of women in the United States is that of a size 14.

Who says 7 is deadly?
Look out world Glamour Magazine’s November issue is on newsstands now and features these 7 gorgeous plus size women of modeling. These women are bold and extremely comfortable in their own skin as they bare it all very tastefully I must add. The awesome thing about this ad is that they don’t appear to be photoshopped at all or at least not on their bodies. Visible are the love handles and pouches that must women have on their abdomens from having a baby or just a little too much fast food.
This Body Image Revolution is catching on as more and more companies are showcasing women that truly represent America. These women are bold and extremely comfortable in their own skin as they bare it all. Designers are taking notice of this and adding full figure lines to their collections.
Finally plus size women are getting the attention that they deserve. I don’t think this is a trend. This is a bold statement of gorgeous women in action who deserve to be treated just like their thinner counterparts.
