Curves Ahead

Now thats a bad b****. Body acceptance and body-type diversity in the media these days has brought plus-sized modeling to a whole new level. Yes, this is nothing new, plus sized models have been around for decades. However, now these girls are not only modeling and stacking checks behind the scenes, they are now household names as well. Some of them once fit into the mainstream image of a "high fashion" model, and unable to keep up with the demands of staying in the skinny box, they have ditched the crash diets and embraced their curves. I couldn't be more thrilled to live and work in the fashion industry during such a pivotal point in the body acceptance revolution. Naomi who?
