The People Have Spoken, And Glamour Mag Complies
You say you want a revolution? Change is afoot at Glamour after the magazine has received tons of PR from its “shocking,” controversial decision to show a semi-nude plus-size model in their September issue. (Actually, they had shot gorgeous blonde model Lizzie Miller nude in the mag before, but this time, they showed a more “unflattering” angle highlighting her belly and the media went wild!) Naturally, bloggers had plenty to say on the matter, and Miller and Glamour editor Cindi Leive even made an appearance on “Today” to talk about how their readers were overjoyed to see a woman who wears a size 12-14 in the mag. Now it seems they’ve decided to
milk the publicity stay true to what readers want by shooting another feature with plus-size women for the November issue: A “Page Six” tipster says famous curvier models like Kate Dillon, Jennie Runk, Amy Lemons and Crystal Renn are all involved. While a mainstream mag like Glamour certainly won’t influence hyper-haute fashion mags like W and V, they do have a huge circulation. Whatever their motives, look for their moves to be copied by similar ladymags soon. Are you ready to see less airbrushing and more normal-sized women or what?
