Pretty in Plus-Size

Elle Canada recently did a fashion editorial featuring plus-size model Crystal Renn. What's refreshing about this editorial is that it doesn't at all mention that Crystal is plus-sized.

So often when fashion magazines feature plus size models in an editorial it usually comes with a headline proclaiming it, so we plus sized girls can give the magazine "props" for featuring one of us. Not that I really consider Crystal Renn to be like me. She's a size 12. I haven't been a size 12 since I WAS 12. Oooh, she has HIPS.

But still. . .she's bigger than the normal size 2 models out there, so I'll take what I can get.

Anyway the shots are gorgeous and I must say that for a change I will give props to a fashion magazine for featuring a plus sized girl as if she was just any old model, which she is. You go Elle Canada!

  1. I find this spread to be almost more elegant and definitely more relatable than the so called "normal" photo shoots I've seen!!! Great find!

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

    They're all gorgeous.

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