Or does it? V Magazine’s photoshoot, featuring a plus-size model Crystal Renn head to head with a skinnier colleague Jacquelyn Jablonski wearing exact same outfits is trying to tell us that it doesn’t. But with various immature comments, criticizing Renn, or even calling Jablonski, who is 5’9″ and measures 32/24/34, “curvy”, it is painfully clear that this industry is not size-blind.
Having said that, a major magazine, showcasing beautiful and healthy girls wearing non-sample sizes, including a shoot photographed by Karl Lagerfeld, who has once famously proclaimed that “no one wants to see curvy women”, is perhaps yet another small step in the right direction. Until then, we have these gorgeous photos of Crystal to prove, that beauty surely does come in all sizes and shapes.
