Featured on the cover of Vogue Italia’s June 2011 edition are Plus-size models Tara Lynn, Candice Huffine and Robyn Lawley. The cover story by Steven Meisel also includes Marquita Pring. Beside bringing first class journalism and entertainment, Vogue Italia is clearly committed to advancing the cause of plus size models and diversity with their Vogue Curvy and Vogue Black web presence.
However, this is nothing new to Vogue Italia.
Sophie Dahl covered the February 2000 issue which help thrust the cause of plus size models forward by demonstrating their beauty and marketability.
As we see, that effort continues today, even stronger.
