It seems like the real woman has finally embarked on her journey in the fashion world. To be a model one had to qualify the decided size, but does size zero exist in reality? Size has always been a controversial issue on the runway. Each and every fashion week every year ushers in a new trend of different sizes for models, straying away from the size zero trend, being size 4. It’s amazing to see how the fashion industry has taken this big step towards the reality by photographing these beautiful curvacious ladies in publications, on the ramp walk, editorials and many more.
Everyone would like to dress up like the runway models, and today, even a curvy girl watching the runway shows can say she can wear that dress too and pull it off with flare. Curvy women now have the ability to look as fashionable and chic as their thin counterparts. I think everyone is excited to see different body types on the runway.
Bust magazine, a publication which draws attention to all the types of body shapes, conducted a shoot featuring plus size models of ALDA; Ashley Graham, Danielle Redman, Marquita Pring, Inga Eirkisdottir and Julie Henderson. These beautiful ladies can be seen in the latest issue of Bust magazine accentuating and flaunting their curves with pride.
I feel amazed by just the thought that the plus size models can make other women’s lives much easier. Everyone is not as sleek and thin as the runway models. In fact, nobody is perfect at all. So the fact that designers have started respecting each and every body type and taken a chance on curvy women to walk for them is a big thing. It gives the younger generation more confidence to be comfortable in their own skin. It makes them feel powerful. And I’m not talking only about the young generation but about all plus size women regardless of their size. It’s just trying to set up a platform of confidence for everyone.
This trend of plus size models is reformulating what the society considers as beautiful. Forget the thin models, it’s time for some curvaciousness.
