Too large and too curvy?

The November issues of Vogue America and Italy show Kate Upton’s curves. Photographer of both stories is Steven Meisel. ‘New girl in fashion’ Kate Upton (size 38 EU), model from IMG, who was thrown into the media spotlight after being called “fat”, “vulgar”, and “lardy”, is truly a model in the no-mans land of modeling at a US size 4. She is considered too big and curvy for the typical straight size modeling, but is clearly too small for plus size modeling.
So she’s an in between ‘inbetweenmodel’! I think it’s really great to show this size more and more in the high end fashion! I just love size diversity! And of course more inbetweenies as well! As long as models are super beautiful, I think it will work!

Wanna be an inbetweenie

Marc Jacobs designed the collection for Louis Vuitton. Even his own as Louis Vuittons collection had the same feel. Feminine back in time, back into the 19th century. And wanna be an inbetweenie… style: the clothes were very oversized and curvy shape. These are the 1st pictures of their fall campaign. Steven Meisel has done the photography.

Franca Sozzani: “What led us to establish that thin is beautiful….”

Franca Sozzani admits that the fashion world is partly responsible for eating disorders. Franca Sozzani, editor of Italian Vogue, is a vocal representive of the fashion industry who has been addressing the issue of eating disorders for several years. Now she’s trying to ban pro-ana websites, online blogs and social sites that promote starvation and deprivation. She compares the pro-ana blogs and websites to child pornography: “Why are we so outraged and disgusted by paedophile sites, and do absolutely nothing against sites that instruct people to cut themselves and feel pain to distract their attention from food, or to throw up and let themselves die? Isn’t this a crime, too?”

Ironically, Sozzani recently received criticism for a controversial December 2011 Italian Vogue photo spread — shot by Steven Meisel — and starring 19-year-old model Karlie Kloss. In the photos, the model’s figure looked distorted and emaciated. After staunch criticism of the photo, it was removed from the magazine’s website.
But she subsequently regretted removing the shot and defended the photo on her blog, claiming that there was no Photoshopping and that Kloss is not anorexic but a healthy, muscular girl who wears swimsuits and lingerie for Victoria’s Secret.

Still, we applaud Italian Vogue for promoting women of all shapes and sizes in their magazine. And although Sozzani bravely raised many more questions than she had answers for in her Harvard speech, at least she’s talking publicly about the problem. Here’s one particularly thought-provoking part of her speech:
“What led us to establish that thin is beautiful and that thinness is the aesthetic code we should follow? Why [did] the age of supermodels, who were beautiful and womanly, slowly [start] decreasing and we now have still undeveloped adolescents with no sign of curves?

Such a good movement… hopefully more magazines will see this is not a good way to show fashion! It should be shown on healthy women… This is for me a confirmation that media DOES affect (young) women.
