Curves Ahead in V Magazine

Check out these shots from V Magazine‘s forthcoming issue, entitled “The Size Issue” and featuring five plus-size models.

The issue, on newsstands January 14, features this spread with styling by Nicola Formichetti and shows the sexy side of the plus-size modeling world with shots of Candice Huffine, Marquita Pring, Michelle Olson, Tara Lynn and Kasia P.

Photographer Solve Sundsbo told V, “I loved the opportunity to show that you can be beautiful and sexy outside the narrow interpretations that normally define us.”

    If this is to make fun of heavyweighted women, it is grotesque. Totally ridiculous. They should have asked them to take different poses. They look like clowns wanting to imitate Bar Refaeli or Miranka Kerr. This is quite insulting …

    i have a feeling this issue of V magazine is going to upset a lot of people. you know, the people who think that everyone should be no larger than a size 2 in order to be in a magazine. let the fun begin.

    I’ve seen better “plus-size” model photos.This looks like still shots of a parody.
    The models have beautiful faces though.

    @Pining for Chris: They also have beautiful bodies. The girl in the bra has a fantastic shape. They’re doing poses that are routine for high end magazine and I think that’s the point.

    Both girls are under the average weight of an american woman.
    90% of all the US women are to fat and they do not recognize it

    I read fashion magazines to escape reality. To me, the beautiful SKINNY models and the beautiful clothing they wear are part of a fantasy, albeit an unachievable one. Its exclusiveness is what makes it unique and appealing.

    Not every woman is beautiful. If everyone was beautiful, then beauty would cease to be beauty and would become the norm aka average.

    These women are AVERAGE. There’s nothing wrong with being average but I think average has no place in a fashion magazine. If I wanted mediocrity I would just go outside.

    Skinny and beautiful models are JEMS. Precious and unique, not something you see everyday. THAT, my friends, is their appeal.

    plus size? they’re NORMAL LOOKING, this is what the average woman looks like out there, and I do think those models pull it off

    I have become so jaded by the the model photo that everything else simply looks uncomfortable.

    Chloe Says:

    It’s hilarious that American women have adopted this crusade to make fat acceptable. Sure, you size 4+’s can convince yourselves that you are attractive, but that doesn’t mean you are attractive to others.

    Go to Europe – Paris, Milan, Cannes, Monaco, etc..
    Most of the women there are below size 6 US. They are beautiful. Clothes look magnificent on them.

    Unless you have a legitimate medical condition or are elderly, you have NO EXCUSE TO BE OVER SIZE 6. Anything over that is just blah.

    Look guys, they airbrushed the cellulite out! What’s wrong, you Americans don’t think cellulite is attractive? I think cellulite lumps could constitute curves? no? haha

    Marissa Says:

    How about a “normal” woman, with an healthy weight? Not American average, sorry, healthy. In the fashion industry of today there only seems to be two extremes: super skinny or plus size. Although the women in this magazine are not “extreme”, they aren’t fat, they are chubby, it would be nice to see someone who is a size 10, 12 or 14.

    Jeff Says:

    FAT ROLLS AREN’T CURVES! Get that through your thick heads you cows. Give me a svelte, healthy size 2 young woman any day. The type of girl that can pull of skinny jeans and a nice pair of 4 inch heels. Now thats sexy!

    One “Big Girl” collector’s issue, and next month they’ll go back to cover-to-cover emaciated 14 year olds peddling over-priced products to 40+ year olds to make them look/feel 25 years old.

    Put them in regular rotation, and maybe I’ll flinch.

    @Chloe Says:

    And how shallow are you?

    Been to Italy and Spain? Most of the women there are absolutely lovely and not below a size six. Beauty comes from within. Marilyn Monroe was a size 12-14 and gorgeous. I believe Bardot was an 8-10 and same with Deneuve.

    These women are not obese nor are they fat. They are plus size for the modeling industry.

    I think these women are stunning; their faces and their bodies and I’m not plus size and never weighed more than 124 lbs @ 5’6″.

    I don’t find them attractive because “I’m trying to convince myself of something.” They just are, way prettier than most of the hot in hollywood.

    And I find their rounder bodies refreshing. As a fashion magazine reading woman I would love to see more women like them.

    I happen to be close friends with a few models in NYC, all of them are over 5’10” and below a size 4. Let me tell you, they are some of THE healthiest people I know. They watch what they eat, but do not starve. I think it is a huuuuuge misconception that models are “emaciated” or sick.

    Just because YOU can’t be skinny without resorting to drastic measures, doesn’t mean that the models all have to be sick.

    hate to tell you this but a lot of those photographs in magazines that you think are beautiful skinny models are actually airbrushed. you would be very surprised at the names of the models whose photos i’ve seen, how to say this, “retouched”. it works like this, we get the photos and then correct the “flaws”. make the waist smaller, the ankles a little less bulky, the arms a little less flabby, and the bust, well i think you get the idea. do you understand what i am saying here? .

    @Chloe: Where are you from? I’m from Europe and your statement that “Most of the women there are below size 6 US” is straight up wrong.

    I like Big women

    @Natalie Says:

    Fashion magazines must be the only thing your brain can absorb.

    It is GEMS not JEMS.

    So what if these women are average? Some folks would like to see how an average woman can where fashion and be above average. Some of us prefer not to support an industry where drugs are the mode of weight loss–you know crystal meth, heroin and the like? But as you said–skinny equals beauty equals JEMS so therefore drugs are fine as is anorexia and bulemia. As Kate Moss said–nothing tastes so good as being thin.

    Gala Says:

    BTW, most fashion magazines tell you what size of clothing the model is wearing (in the back). Most models in Vogue, for example, wear a size 4, which is a perfectly reasonable size.

    lala Says:

    Not meaning to be rude but this is wrong, it just doesn’t look good, I’m sorry. People do not want to see women like that on a magazine when they can see them around everyday. If models were supposed to look like ordinary girls then pretty much everyone could do it
