Curvy and on the Cover of Vogue!!

VOGUE | CURVILICIOUS
By Huda Heidi Kattan


I can’t say I’m surprised, but fashion magazine giant Vogue Italia has put three very hot plus size models on the cover of their June issue, which honestly looks AMAZING! Vogue Italia and their editor Franca Sozanni have always celebrated curvy women, with the launch of their own curvy website for Vogue as well Frana’s support to anti-eating disorder websites and foundations (evening putting the petition online)–she has also spoken out about her dislike for the use of Photoshop. In an interview with WWD, she reportedly stated:

“We help [plus-size women] dress fashionably. We say: It’s pointless for you to buy leggings, take this because this will look good on you. We help them choose. We don’t talk about diets because they don’t want to be on a diet, but it’s not a ghetto. Why should these women slim down? Many of the women who have a few extra kilos are especially beautiful and also more feminine.”

I am soooooo happy to see such a huge fashion magazine taking steps in the right direction! I really feel like even though it might be a small change, hopefully it will have an affect on some girls out there! I know from personal experience, healthy and feeling like you own your figure is far sexier than someone who is unhealthy and unsure about themselves (not to mention the lack of energy most eating disorders cause).  It doesn’t matter if you are thick or thin, being healthy and owning who are you is without doubt the hottest thing a woman can do!
