Kuddos to VOGUE ITALIA! (haha! Akala mo close eh! haha!) Real size models on their cover! Ganda!
As the editor said:
Vogue Italia editor-in-chief Franca Sozzani to talk about the glossy’s June cover, which features a trio of plus-size models. Sozzani told the site, “All [who work] in fashion are victims — the media, even myself, even the runways — of the beauty of the moment,” which is, typically, the skinnier the better.
Do you think plus-size models will ever get the same work and at the same rate as straight-size model
No, I don’t think so, because for the moment — and we never know, you know? — but for the moment I don’t think we’ll see the same proportion [of plus-size models as straight-size models]. Just like we don’t see the same proportion of white and black girls. They use curvy models sometimes, like a provocation, but it is just to show something different, which I don’t like honestly. I loved for example Prada, the winter before last she used three or four girls which were curvy girls. So not everybody will embrace that, I don’t think so. But I think in a way we will stop to think, do you really want to go on with all these skinny girls? If this is the only question that comes up, for me [the issue] will be a big success.
As i said before, it’s not the size of the canvass that matters but the beauty of the painting. Lalo na kung maganda ang “soul” or pagkatao.
