Fashion fits all.

'V' magazine has devoted its January issue to plus size models.
This shoot by fashion photographer Terry Richardson features a size 16 Crystal Renn alongside a size 0 model, proving that size ain't nothing but number.

  1. I saw this and can't agree with it enough!
    You can barely tell the difference and the plus size model looks stunning

  3. This strikes me as something the anorexic girls who inexplicably read my blog should see.

  4. I really like this! It's nice to feel like women can look hot in whatever they want to wear, no matter their size!

  5. I saw this in the papers yesterday and thought it was brilliant, Crystal looks gorgeous. What annoyed me was the comments in the paper from the public who said the size 16 model needed to lose some weight and other stupid comments- but then again, it was in the Daily Mail so what should I expect!

  6. They both look beautiful! It really doesn't look as if there is that big a size different.

  9. All girls look amazing!
    There should be more variety. Not one ideal.
    Im happy to see this.

  10. hse doesn't look size 16. i'm a 12 and I look so much bigger than her.

  11. There's no way she is a size 16! It just goes to show how pathetic the media are- they are trying to look as if they are doing the right thing- all the while retouching images...

  12. I have worked with loads of plus size models and they are amazing because they are size 16 but look like a size 12.
    They are not fat girls, they just have heavier frames. Some of them even have flat tummies!
    This is my friend Nina http://www.excel-models.com/nina/ she is a size 16.
    Crystal Renn looks the same. She carries her weight evenly distributed all over her body. Basically they are in proportion.

  14. If only they would do a side by side comparison of a "raw" photo and a photo-shopped photo so people can really see what the model looks like. I think we are so immune to air brushing that we don't even know what the expectations are, especially for young girls. Ok, enough of my rant! Happy Holidays everyone!

  16. The plus-sized (aka:normal woman) model is working it! She is fierce and she looks healthy..I love it!

  17. The plus size model looks amazing... I am glad someone is making a stand towards healthy looking models.

  18. Hope the idea will grow on other magazines, and the idea of A photoshopped and non shopped version of the same picture is really good too, thans for sharing! happy holliday everyone!!

  19. Crystal looks amazing, even better than the size 0 model! Such an inspiration !

  20. i saw these images just yesterday, does anyone else think that she looks about 30 times sexier than the skeletal model, crystal renn is fab!

  21. That's so fantastic. As a fashionable fat lady and an enthusiast of plus fashion, I have mixed feelings about Crystal Renn as the industry's acceptably fat workhorse (why, she's just so pretty you'd barely notice she's a plus model! Condescending), but this is such a good idea for a shoot. I'll be picking up the issue if I'm able to find it.

  22. I definitely agree Madsta...she does look a hell of a lot better than the skinny girl. Not to mention...she actually looks like she's enjoying her self! (Must be the cheeseburgers she's allowed to eat.) Her poses are better and she looks...more alive. The other girl looks bored.

  23. I'm a shorter size 16 and if that was airbrushed...well whatever. I carry my weight pretty well too. I am wider side to side and thinner front to back. Say what you want if a woman is a healthy size 16 or an unhealthy size 16 or more we need encouragement that we look good as we are even if we're bigger than we want to be and while we're trying to slim down. And I did the same thing as UnicornSmile I didn't realize it was the same look on two different models of different sizes until the third time I looked at it!

  24. I know its mostly out of ignorance rather than intention but I wish people would realise by criticising the size zero model they are perpetuating exactly what we're hoping to end.
    The whole reason a varied size modeling industry would have such a positive impact would be because less people would feel there is one specific body ideal they must strive to be and realise the true ideal is to be whatever you naturally are.

  25. the size 16 model is WAY prettier. she has more curves. that's how a woman should be? who wants to look like an eleven year old boy?

    ReplyDelete
  26. I loved this post. So nice to see. I agree with Unicorn Smile, took me a couple of looks to realise they weren't the same model. More power to curvy Size 16 models :) Stunning xx

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

    They're all gorgeous.

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

  28. Both models are gorgeous. But then beauty's in the eye of the beholder.

  29. Thanks for posting this!

    Being 5'11 and a plus size it def. makes me feel a lot better about myself seeing girls like Crystal Renn or Ashley Graham featured in fashion magazines, as I sometimes struggle with feeling a little out place with petite skinny girls around me :)
    Btw Glamour mag recently started showing "plus" size girls as well.

  31. Terry Richardson has very interesting photographs.....I like this post!

  32. Totally agree Samantha - I saw Nesh, the size 16 model who's always on GMTV with Mark Hayes, in the flesh recently and she didn't look like a size 16 at all - she is slim & toned but obviously just has a larger frame. It's nothing to do with being 'fat'.

  35. I think plus size model pics are more attractive... I feel 0 size is too skinny and you can see the bones which is really turn off for me lol..

    ReplyDelete
  36. Personally to me the plus size model looks very appealing on the eye, she looks healthy, full of life/verve and confidence and that in itself is attractive. And she is working it :o)
