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.
One of few plus size models to stomp the runway, Sophie has gone from a size 16 to a size 10 and not everyone is happy about it. She said:”People definitely said I had betrayed them. Strangers felt very open to comment about it. When one is a projection of a collective thought, it’s very odd.”
Should size acceptance apply when one goes from a size 10 to a 16 as well as when one goes from a size 16 to a 10 ?
