@Chloe:

you seriously deserve your teeth being knocked out of your head. i’m 5’9, 138 lbs, and i’m a size 8. i am very happy in my own skin and i am FAR from fat. for you to say there is no excuse to be more than a size 6 is ridiculous. you know whats ridiculous??? innocent, good people, die of cancer, and other diseases everyday, while you get to continue to breathe air you a$$hole.

@Gala:

You caught emaciated, and not the fact that I said FOURTEEN.
The POINT of my post is they put UNDERAGED girls in these ads/shots that WOULD NOT have NORMAL body fat because they HAVEN’T FINISHED GROWING, then slap on the makeup and such – thus making them look mature, but underfed.

Then you jump at me for making an assumption about your model friends, and did the exact same thing by assuming I am starving myself to be like them.

Wrong on so many levels. Wrong all of the way around.

I didn’t like the poses but have to admit the girl laying on the floor nude was sexy!

Nicola Formichetti is clearly the most talented stylist. I would love to see him take over American Vogue!!!!!!

I’m soooo sick of this selfish way of thinking. People in the last century didnt bat an eyelid for ultra skinny and then all of a sudden it was the thing to be.
It makes me sick the way people talk about thin, average, fat, obese.
Be what you want to be and are comfortable with.
You dont have to aspire to anything other than being yourself.
I am a fashion and costume designer and the latter being something that transports any type of woman/man.
The term “models” is used widely to represent the popularity as a whole and this is basically what they are doing here.
There are two types of people in this world. People who are comfortable with themselves and dont feel they have to judge or be judged and the other that is sooo completely neurotic and unconfident about themselves, they have to aspire to be something to feel good and feel the need to drag others down with them and from what I can see by the comments above there is a lot of women and men in the latter category. Very disappointing.

I hate how the words “curves ahead”is used to define this topic and these women. Women who are genuinely curvy like Beyonce and Jennifer Lopez do not look like fat people. It’s so fustrating that every overweight person I know uses that word to cover up their weight problem.

and for all those people saying this is the average weight, it probably is but we shouldn’t be promoting it. A healthy person is someone who definelty does not look like these women. I’m sorry but why else are western nations like Australia and the US suffering from obesity?

Unless you have a legitimate medical condition or are elderly, you have NO EXCUSE TO BE OVER SIZE 6.
____________________________________________-

what planet are you living on? who are you to decide what size of clothing someone else should wear? last time i checked no one made you god! for the record, your highness, our first lady michelle obama wears around a size 8 dress size. please tell me you’re not stupid enough to suggest that our first lady starve herself so that she wear only dress sizes you approve of. this i would like to see.

also princess diana, at the time of her death, wore a size 8 (US). she was considered by many, and still is, to have been on of the most beautiful women in the world. then there’s kate winslet, she wears a size 8 (US). she has an academy award for best actress and a very successful career in the industry. what exactly do you have?

for my part, i am a size 2, that’s because of genetics. you do understand that term. it is genetics that determine, for the most part, your body type. there are women like oprah who will never will be able to wear anything lower than a size 10 no matter how much they diet and/or exercise.

OMFG… they’re making fun of obese people… not sexy… wrong, wrong, wrong… FAT is NEVER FASHIONABLE… NEVER… EVER… only in America where one can see something this ludicrous & delusional… every b*tch is entitled to her opinion…

yes every girl is entitled her opinion just as every jerk is entitled his/her opinion. it’s america after all.

So many extremes posted here. To one particular moron, anything above a size 6 is not FAT. There are plenty of big-framed women who are sizes 8, 10 and sometimes even 14. There are more important things to life than to stay a size 4 just so you can wear designer clothing. Grow up.

Chole, well aren’t you the stuck up little snot! Get over your glossed over magazine ideal of beauty. If you opened your eyes you would see a lot of beauty around and not all the same size. As for Americans celebrating mediocrity, your words not mine, at least we don’t feel the need to knock people down who don’t fit into your European beauty standard.

#51, OMGLMAO…Hilarious…

Great move for V magazine, this is much needed in this world.

Oh and Liv #60 is absolutely right, just because you’re bigger doesn’t mean you’re fat or unhealthy.

How is this okay….Sad state of our country that so many people consider these women “normal” size. Downright unhealthy. Just shows the sense of entitlement that we have in our “everybody gets a trophy” society. Now I guess everyone can be a model- Hell- how about everyone can be a surgeon- not smart- that’s okay, you’re of normal intelligence and entitled to be anything you want. I think I’ll be a unicorn…so what I don’t have a horn and I am not horse… I am entitled.

I don’t know if that is the average size, but those women are all gorgeous! Especially loving the pictures with the 4 women in jeans and high heals, they look fierce. But just because I like this photoshoot doesnt mean I like to hate on the runway models that are a size 2. I don’t know why it has to be be white or black when it comes to beauty, I think either way a woman can be beautiful. I also wouldnt call these women average like some hasve, especially with their height and faces and curves. Not all women who are plus sized look like that.

Simply beautiful……. why can’t we just appreciate beauty in whatever form?

Glad someone mentioned that Marilyn Monroes size 12 is not the same as one today, she was not really plus sized at all to me. These girls are plus sized… And I have no problem with that but they don’t look fit and that bothers me. Crystal Renn (sp?) is a plus sized model and looks in shape and healthy at the same time. These woman are not portrayed as healthy and sexy when there are rolls of fat showing. I’m sure they could have styled them better to show that it is possible that bigger girls can look good also but for me this is not the way to do so I would take the real fashion models over this any day of the week. Being healthy should be promoted not just being over weight .. it’s important to get it out there that someone who is just 20-40 lbs over weight can have serious medical issues to deal with. We need good health not obesity to make the majority of un healthy people feel ok about themselves

@Marissa: @Chloe: I’m an athletic size 4, and have to say you have an ugly soul. I’d use you for a pull-up bar but you’re too far away.

WICKED WENCH @ 01/04/2010 at 8:06 pm

Ih, that comment was for Chloe only.

WICKED WENCH @ 01/04/2010 at 8:06 pm

Oh, that comment was for Chloe only.

Women like NICE men! @ 01/04/2010 at 8:19 pm

Gorgeous! It’s great to see beautiful faces with beautiful bodies and no clavicles (bones) protruding and sunken eyes in dark eye sockets with dark circles under them.

@ 25 There is nothing ‘ordinary’ looking about any of these women, they all have *unusually* good body proportions and pretty faces and skin, plus you can actually live with them in the ‘real world’ i.e. they eat real food and due to the extra fat are a tighter screw too. Hehehe!

I’m all for breaking down this weight barrier that has been set up by the world of fashion but I have a problem with this shoot : The models are not dressed for they’re body type. I do think curves are beautiful, but you should DRESS FOR YOUR BODY. By putting somebody who’s “average sized” into a tiny cut out swimsuit – you’re just embarrassing the model! Put her in a FLATTERING piece. Show women how to dress for they’re body type.

I think it’s a shame that people can not except the differences of others. If you don’t find them beautiful, well that’s your thing…is it necessary to slander them? I think not. Show some class and respect people. Everyone is different.

just another failure by the fashion industry
why cant they show a regular healthy girl
im sorry but pic 2 is pretty disgusting with all those fat rolls
i support curvy woman such as scarlett, not now but like a yr or 2 ago, or mariyln monore
i still dont understand why they cant just show a normal girl
it’s either really skinny or plus size
just do an average girl for god sakes
