“Nothing can really describe what it’s like to have two new little girls. It’s been very different than when James arrived, since our family expanded in an untraditional way. We didn’t plan on having two, but were doubly blessed, and it’s been just wonderful. [Tabitha and Marion] just turned four months old today! One would prefer to be held 24 hours a day, and the other is already suffering from type A issues. It’s been amazing but complicated because of my current work schedule, which I have enormous regrets about. [...] It is the eternal conflict of every working woman, and I am not complaining, because I’ve done this to myself. And I have a wonderful, wonderful nanny who allows me to be a working person. The great challenge for me is to be all things to all people; I want to be a great mother, and I want to feel good when I’m at work. But it is hard.”

Last night I showed up at the 92nd Street Y in New York City, to witness Washington Post fashion writer Robin Givhan and designers Isaac Mizrahi and Ashley Olsen participate in a panel discussion on the future of women’s fashion led by Glamour editor-in-chief Cindi Leive.
With the economy stuck in a recession for more than a year now, the fashion industry has had to make some adjustments and even start new initiatives, like last month’s Fashion’s Night Out, to get people interested in spending again. So, what do these insiders think about where fashion is and where it’s going? Keep reading to hear what they had to say. Keep reading »
An article in the November issue of Glamour discusses beautiful woman who are larger than standard sample sizes and continues the discussion started by a photo of plus-size model Lizzie Miller from the magazine’s September issue. Along with the article, titled, “Oh. Wow. These Bodies Are Beautiful,” is the above photograph of seven models who are all closer to size 12 than size 2.
The photograph is beautiful and pictures Miller, Crystal Renn, Amy Lemons, Ashley Graham, Kate Dillon, Anansa Sims, and Jennie Runk. The article raises a few good points, i.e., we should stop nitpicking about minor flaws and feel comfortable in our bodies. But why did the models have to be naked? Keep reading »
We told you all about how much positive response Glamour magazine has received from readers for the image of a nude plus-size model featured in the September issue. Lizzie Miller has since appeared on “Today” and copies of the magazine are selling out. Catherine wondered whether the overwhelmingly positive response would result in magazines, and the fashion industry, finally recognizing that beauty comes in a variety of shapes and sizes and that they would start featuring more models like Miller on a regular basis. The Sartorialist’s Scott Schuman wrote on his blog, “When I am shooting on the street older women and larger size women often say ‘no’ to my request to shoot them…. I think they have a real suspicion about how the image will be used. I also think there continues to be a growing disconnect between the fashion community and ‘average’ women in general.”
If a recent blog post from “style expert and bon vivant” Adrien Field is any indication, we still have a long way to go. Keep reading »

Glamour has received loads of praise after publishing a photo in their September issue of plus-sized model, Lizzie Miller. Lizzie, along with Glamour‘s editor-in-chief, Cindi Lieve, was on “Today” this morning to talk about the positive response to the photo — which shows Miller naked, with un-airbrushed stomach pudge — and Lieve vowed that her magazine would be including more models like Miller in the future. Sounds amazing, but we’ll believe it when we see it! Keep reading »
She should have knocked on wood. Jessica Simpson is on the cover of the September issue of Glamour, looking happy and chic. But, natch, the interview and photo shoot happened before Tony Romo told her that he didn’t want to be her Ken doll. So it’s interesting that, in the story, Jessica makes an odd psychic prediction about her life sans Romo:
“If this article comes out and we’re not together, I’d still love him, and he’d still be a huge part of who I am today.”
Check out her other musings, after the jump. [Glamour] Keep reading »
