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.”

    @oy: don’t believe size 6 is fat, but these women are not average size and I don’t believe in making excuses for people who are obese.

    But isn’t that the question? What size is deemed healthy, average and still attractive? I’m a 14 and I think a size 6-8 is a good size. Hell, a size 10 wasn’t too terrible either. Marilyn Monroe was actually a size 12(Size 10 in that day)at her largest. I agree these women do not look healthy. I’m guessing the women pictured are probably a size 20 or above.

    These girls are all very beautiful and it is wonderful to see some plus sized models. However, obviously the photographer and stylist do not know how to photograph or dress plus sized women very well. Thumbnail #2 is just not attractive, nor is the last one. It doesn’t mean the women are not beautiful, just that the wardrobe choice or angle of the pictures does not work for a larger lady. I am plus sized and I can take some beautiful pictures, but sometimes the pictures can actually make me look larger than I actually am, as I am sure it can with smaller ladies as well.

    There are nothing wrong with the models themselves. They are beautiful no matter which size they are. Thin is not the synonym for beautiful, so cut this **** out, that you have to be size 2 or 4 to be it. They have gorgeous faces, fantastic hair and skin like cream. But there is ALL wrong with the kind the photographer Solve Sundsbo took these pictures. Why for gods sake are the models in more than half of these pictures nearly nude? Is this the only way Sundsbo can show us the CURVES of the models – thats so lame. At the same time some of the poses (especially picture # 2, 5 and 9) look like he took it out of an adult magazine/ movie. Size 2 models would look ridiculous in these poses too. It’s not a matter of sizes, when you look ugly in a picture, it’s a matter of how the picture was took. Sundsbo had no clue what he did, he has no concept (except: “Put the models in GUESS Jeans which are to tight, than we show how curvy it is above the jeans”) and he had no respect for the models. When I look at picture #2 I want to puke. It’s also sad the editor of “V” agreed with these kinds of pictures. Maybe he/she did not know it better, than “V” should not bring this theme if they have no clue what “curves” means. This is it not !!!!

    Yes i agree marissa. I also live in europe and unless your french (still with execptions) You go out side on your daily life, malls, public transportation, etc… and 80 % of women are above size 6. Witch should be normal. There’s nothing wrong with that. What has this society became? With so many real problems in the worl, people as discusing sizes? Pls people, there are people dying of hunger every day and wish they had food to put on their childs plates. Lets get our priorities straight!!

    Celebwatcher Says:

    Marilyn Monroe was at most a modern day size 6. These girls look great. I’m not sure why some posters are hating. The average American woman looks like these ladies.

    Read it then weep!

    chloe then maybe you should refrase your comments. how about that, because right now you do sound ignorant and shallow. Grow up and make sense.

    gosh! not pretty at all.

    just because ppl r skinny doesnt mean they r sick!!

    lj Says:

    if they really thought plus size and normal women are beautiful, why take out cellulite bumps and stretch marks? this is just another selling ploy. Shame. The girls are really gorgeous, but I agree with poses – why not just do something more natural and less clowny

    Thanxs 4 playing Says:

    @kk: gosh! not pretty at all.

    Their faces are very pretty. I have to agree, however, that this is not necessarily an example of what is healthy. these women can definitely bear children, though. Although these women could very well be candidates for diabetes or heart disease if they are not at peak physical conditioning.

    Miranda Kerr is nice and all, but most women are not tall and leggy like VS models. It’s just not realistic for most women to be held to that standard. However, I think people don’t understand that one of the reasons tall, lanky models are chosen for modeling is because the clothes hang better on those types of bodies(human clothes hangers) so I don’t have anything against models overall except the ones that go around thinking or bragging how beautiful they are and how much more superior they are to those not born with those specific genetics. I think Adriana Lima is stunning, personally.

    I think the argument here should be more about how irresponsible it is to set up a certain standard as the be all end all of what is “beautiful” or “the ideal”; not to mention the practice of photoshopping, which leads people to seek out an unrealistic and unobtainable goal as in, no cellulite when cellulite is almost always a reality, etc..

    @Chloe: i agree with you partially.on one hand, i’m not american, i’m from europe and i can tell you that there are plenty of “plus-size” women out here. on the other hand, you are so right about women (and also men) who are just fat and make no effort to change that. like you said unless there’s a medical condition involved, i don’t see how can a young, beautiful woman settle to be plus-sized and fool herself that she’s perfect the way she is when she’s clearly not. i don’t know…a few years ago i gained 10 pounds and still wasn’t fat, but i was plus-sized. i didn’t like it. i felt horrible. so i did something about it and thanks to that, now i’m not 30 pounds heavier. cause i’m sure that would’ve happened… i think women who decide to just sit and watch the weight pile up are just lazy and lack any initiative.

    Status quo Says:


    There’s something wrong with you…really wrong…But hey, at least you’re being honest…I guess. Those women are not “average”, they’re beautiful, not only because of the way they “look” but because of their confidence and their defiance against superficial societal norms. Beauty is in every living thing on this planet and its really sad that you cant see that. All you see if what you’ve been told to perceive as beautiful by high end fashion magazines that glorify “skinny” models and expensive clothing.

    Wow. Again, you need some serious help.

    Chloe Says:

    @Status quo:

    I need help because my opinion differs from yours? I need help because I happen to think thinner is more appealing? No, I think you need help.

    Boo Hoo, look at me I’m a size 14 and I pretend that I’m soooo happy with myself but god forbid I see a prettier woman than me in a magazine! Seeing a prettier and thinner woman damages my self esteem and makes me want to vomit. So instead of changing myself, I’ll just try to get the pretty woman out of the magazines, so I don’t have to feel bag about myself. WA WA WA

    Chloe Says:

    And I agree with Anastasia, why WOULDN’T you want to look thinner? Clothing looks better on you. WHen you are thinner you look taller and more graceful.

    This American mentality that “everyone is beautiful” escapes me. No, not everyone is beautiful, both inside or out. Is a murderer beautiful? Is a 300 pound housewife beautiful? Is a oily-haired zit faced overweight girl beautiful? NO, maybe in your demented heads. Beauty is beauty because its exclusive. We only idolize something that is rare and not common-place.

    You Americans make me (and the rest of the world) laugh! So go on stuffing your faces, telling yourself that you are ALL beautiful, and that size 10+ is not fat. haha my grandma is a size 14 she’s 75 years old, she had two operations and cannot move to get exercise. What’s YOUR excuse?

    aquame Says:

    My current body is exactly like the model’s in the second pic (the bathing suit with the rolls). While I’m currently changing my eating lifestyle (I’m an emotional eater) and have lost 16 pounds since I began in November, I must admit it is nice to see my body type all glammed up like that! LOL

    Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Some cliches ring true. That is all.

    Ladies, if it wrinkles when it’s squashed then lose it coz fat ain’t a sexy look!

    And this is why heart disease is the #1 killer. And diabetes is prevalent, obesity is an epidemic, etc, etc. Just put down the McBurger and put on some jogging shoes for goodness’ sake. We certainly don’t need to teach people that obesity is okay…or cute…or healthy.

    I’m not saying you should take drugs to be a size 0, but eating healthy and exercise is *not* a bad thing. And if you do this you won’t look like *that*. Some people are very, very lazy.

    Michelle Says:


    Are you gay? I have never heard of a straight man this fixated on a woman’s dress sizes and accessories. It’s okay if you are gay, more power to ya. Just don’t pretend to be a straight man so you can try to make women feel fat. It’s just tacky.

    Vanessa Says:

    It dosent look wrong ! Some people do want to see women like that because there real. Not everyone is skinny ! Those girls are stunning they are total models. I showed all my friends this and they also think the same. Its time for a change in the modeling industry. Finally a magazine is recognising that curvy is beautiful.

    Jeff Says:


    You are too funny doll. No, I am not gay. You must live in Idaho, Kentucky or some other god-forsaken village where men do not care what their women wear. Overalls, anyone? haha

    I, for one, LOVE it when my girlfriend and girl-friends wear stylish clothing, skinny jeans and high heels being my favorite. YOUR man might be satisfied with frumpy jeans and a soiled t-shirt, but not me.

    DB Says:

    I think these women look sexy and beautiful. They remind me of 40s pinup girls.

    Why are the people who consider them attractive so ANGRY? If you don’t think they’re pretty, then don’t by the magazine, but why are people going insane like this?

    Men who are obsessed with only liking thin women are usually.

    1. Gay, and they want an excuse to reject every woman they see. Instead of admitting that they are gay, they reject women for not being a size 0. If she is a size 0, they decide her breasts aren’t big enough, etc. until they eliminate all women frm the running. That way they get to pretend they’re straight. Stop it. Come out f the closet. We know you’re gay.

    2. They are straight, but they usually have small packages and are afraid they will only look normal if they are with a tiny woman. I’m not joking.
