That's awesome! Thanks for sharing it. Its on my MySpace now... hee hee. All the girls are absolutely gorgeous, but I was really kind of struck by Crystal Renn... Wow!

I know! She's amazing -- she was originally a straight-size model, but it wasn't AT ALL her natural body type and required very disordered eating. Eventually she decided to get healthy, became a plus-size model, and was the first plus-size model to be in a mainstream fashion couture show! with designer Jean-Paul Gaultier! and he enthused over her form :D

an interview where she tells her story (contains pound and measurement numbers, just to warn you) That article is pretty old, since then she's been in the Italian Vogue and had a four-page spread in Glamour -- she's a powerful force for change! I am sure that more plus models will follow in her footsteps and hopefully we will eventually have media that represents the variety we find in our daily lives.

I was walking down my local High Street this morning and Evans (a UK plus size shop) had 2 huge photographs of Crystal Renn in the windows. Wonderful.

oh wow! You should stop by and ask if you can have them after when they change them out for the next set! Then you can hang them on the wall for curvy inspiration -- or you can send them to me, hee hee :D

They are so large, about 10 feet high, I don't think I could fit them in my house!
28th-Apr-2007 11:26 pm (UTC)
oh wow! I wish I could see them!
28th-Apr-2007 11:50 pm (UTC)
I'll take my camera into town next week and get a photo of the front of the shop if they are still there.

yay! :D :D :D

Oh that's awesome! Thanks! She's definitely cool. I'm glad she decided to be healthy and go with the plus size modeling. She's so gorgeous!

How beautiful and inspiring! Thank you for sharing this! I was thinking how lovely it would be to see a slide show of our own beautiful comunity of curvy girls! (Which each pictured person's permission, of course)
28th-Apr-2007 09:49 pm (UTC)
It would be! perhaps that should be next month's theme... I will add it to the list of choices!
28th-Apr-2007 12:50 pm (UTC)
They are all gorgeous. So inspiring!
28th-Apr-2007 09:49 pm (UTC)
I agree! :D

It was impossible for me to choose a favourite, there are so many beautiful women there. I started making a list of my favourites but once I'd gone past 20 I gave up trying to choose.
28th-Apr-2007 09:56 pm (UTC)
haha! I know how you feel! My favorites are: Jese Gary, Crystal Renn, Valerie Lefkowitz, Mia Tyler, Maiysha Simpson, Kate Dillon, Teiko Dornor, Sara Ramirez, Ivory May, Fluvia, Sophie Dahl, Jamil Kali, Lara Johnson, Michelle Tang, Scarlett Johansen, and Ashley Graham. :D Though of course I think they're all beautiful!
28th-Apr-2007 05:29 pm (UTC)
Wow! They are all so gorgeous an such a great reminder how sexy a curvy girl can look :D I think my favorite was Sophie Dahl? Probably because she reminded me so much of Marilyn who is my all-time favorite. But each girl had such striking beauty and confidence :)

Sophie is awesome! She used to be much more voluptuous than now, and I've read so many interviews/articles where people were just blown away by her presence. Since then she has bowed somewhat to Hollywood, sadly, and deliberately changed her body (if it is for the sake of health, then more power to ya, but if you are changing yourself for the sake of a look, that makes me sad). Haven't heard anything about her in the last couple years, so I don't know what she's up to nowadays. Despite the change, her powerful presence did some changing of people's ideas back in the day, and I totally respect that. I hope she comes back to modeling as a voluptuous woman!

Totally agree on Ivory May and Fluvia, both have outrageous hip-waist curves! So unique and cool!
