This year V Magazine starts off with a big bang (no pun intended!). It only makes sense that the leading fashion magazine walks into the new decade with a more healthy, open and accepting perspective on all body shapes and sizes. Perhaps the runway did not successfully take on the body mass index system as a way to set weight standards for models but magazines promoting a variety of body images is surely a step in the right direction.
V Magazine even goes on to show that, truly, “One Size Fits All” with their side-by-side comparison editorial by raunchy-ass photographer Terry Richardson. The looks are styled with a creative mix of: Versace, D&G, Georgio Armani, Proenza Schouler, accessories by Alexis Bittar and socks by We Love Colors just to name a few. The models display that anyone and everyone can rock out what seems like fun vibrant colors and patterns punched together for the latest looks this spring season. “If it’s bright enough, tight enough, or eye-poppingly printed enough, odds are it’ll work on any figure”.
Oh, but the spring 2010 issue does not stop there. Fashion photographer Solve Sundsbo also features more beautiful plus-size models in the unretouched editorial “Curves Ahead”. Feeling confident and comfortable in their skin, these models strip off a few layers and, as a result, are all looking smokin’ hot. Not “voluptuous”, “curvy” or “juicy”. Just simply hot! Why should the models have all the fun? I like fans blowing wind into my hair too.
The iconic V Magazine issue hits all newsstands everywhere January 14th 2010.
