The Irony of Vogue Italia’s June Cover

By Vaneza

So yes, kudos to Vogue Italia and their June cover which features not one, but three plus-sized models (Tara LynnCandice Huffine, and Robyn Lawley) shot by famed photographer Steven Miesel…However, does anyone else find it a little odd that the publication only has two plus sized editorials in it’s entire issue that are literally smushed between other editorials with more fit models?

Franca Sozzani, the magazine’s editor-in-chief (who has quite the opinions) recently told WWD, “We help [plus-size women] dress fashionably. We say: It’s pointless for you to buy leggings, take this because this will look good on you. We help them choose. We don’t talk about diets because they don’t want to be on a diet, but it’s not a ghetto. Why should these women slim down? Many of the women who have a few extra kilos are especially beautiful and also more feminine.”

An interesting take on the issue, but what do you think? Regardless of the fact that in March, Sozzani launched a petition against pro-anorexia websites, do you think this was just a sad attempt at featuring plus size models, or a genuine one?

    I’m not sure of Vogue IT is helping plus sized women to dress better when, more often than not, the plus sized models featured aren’t wearing, you know…clothes.

    Not sure either! but it’s nice for our plus sizes to see beautful plus size models being pastered in popular mags and don’t they look great much nicer than the skin and bone we usually see.

    Any publicity for plus sizes only helps, nice pics.
