Everyones doing it...plus size models

V Magazine SNEAK PEAK. 

Terry Richardson teamed up with V magazine to shoot the "One size fits all" editorial for The Size Issue for January.  Featuring top plus-size model and author of “Hungry” Crystal Renn alongside newcomer—and more traditional model body-type—Jacquelyn Jablonski.
Richardson’s photo spread showcases Renn and Jablonski side-by-side in identical looks, matching sample size outfits and similar poses. Still, the effect is a powerful one that proves fashion can flatter any figure. Most recently Renn—who has walked the runway for Jean-Paul Gaultier and graced the cover of American Vogue—famously penned her own weight and body image struggles within the model industry in a memoir entitled “Hungry: A Young Model’s Story of Appetite, Ambition and the Ultimate Embrace of Curves,” which was released this fall.

Jacquelyn: 5 ft, 9 in; 32/24/34
Crystal Renn: 5 ft, 9 in; 36/31/41



Crystal Renn is looking so hot showing off her curves! she's always a great example for other girls who struggle with the pressure of being unrealistically thin.

I don't know if it's because we rarely see average or plus sized women modeling that makes it stand out. But it makes me focus more on the body then the clothes. But maybe if it were the norm, I could get back to seeing the whole picture instead of just big thighs.

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.
