EVANS NEW SPRING COLLECTION

Evans have certainly pulled a fantastic line up for its spring collection. 

The latest 2010 campaign for the company — which caters to sizes 14 to 32 — takes its inspiration from Peter Lindbergh’s 1990 cover for Vogue, featuring a supermodel jackpot of Christy Turlington, Naomi Campbell, Linda Evangelista, Cindy Crawford and Tatjana Patitz.

Twenty years on, Evans’ updated version stars a cluster of curvy beauties — Britney Vecchio, Hayley Morley (of Mark Fast catwalk fame), Crystal Renn (the face of the brand), Amber Tolliver and Peeky — in a clean, simple shot that the brand calls “aspirational yet accessible.”

“These supermodels of the ‘plus’ industry are making you forget their size,” Gary Dakin, vice-president of Ford Models, said in a press release.

“It is women like these that are going to knock down the final barriers, showing that they are some of the best at what they do by modeling for some of the key opinion formers and brands within the fashion world.”

Hear hear. I love the simple, sophisticated aesthetic, with the girls looking gorgeous in jeans, white tees and on-trend fitted tuxedo, military and leather jackets.

V MAGAZINE CELEBRATES CURVES…

Fashion magazine, V, has come up trumps this month with its size issue, named Love U just the way U R! I buy V anyway, just because of the fabulous fashion spreads but this issue is definately my favourite yet. It stars Crystal Renn among others modelling the same outfits as other slimmer models usually used in the world of fashion in the ‘One Size Fits All’ editorial.

Heres a quote from the mag…”WHAT’S THE SKINNY ON TODAY’S MODELS? BIG IS BIGGER THAN EVER, AND THESE BOMBSHELLS OF PLUS-SIZE ARE PROVING THAT THERE’S PLENTY OF ROOM IN THE FASHION WORLD FOR WOMEN WHO LOOK LIKE…WOMEN”

I’ve added images from the issue for those of you out there that dont buy the mag, just because it is just curvilicious

FRONT PAGE NEWS…

As you all know I’m a massive fan of Beth Ditto. Shes unashamedably flamboyant about her fabulous figure. Ive added thse magazine covers because it shows how, even though thin may be in, Beth has that charasima that gets her not only in the magazine but on the front cover!

My favourite look has to be the front cover of LOVE magazine, showing all Beth’s curves in their pure beauty!

Vote at the end of post for which is your favourite…

Nigella Lawson – Chef

Chloe Marshall – Miss Surrey and Plus Size Spokeswoman

GLAMOUR MAG – INFAMOUS NOVEMBER ISSUE

miller2

Glamour magazine is set to honour plus size models in its November Issue after the media attention that their September Issue brought when they photographed Lizzie Miller without airburshing her ‘normal’ (hate using that term) womans stomach.

It caused uproar in the fashion crowd, although the readers of Glamour applauded the magazines decision to print this. Miller is no bigger than a size 12 yet the distorted world of fashion, she was deemed plus size and should have been air brushed to obscurity like most other non- discript models.

The double page spread features Miller, Crystal Renn, Amy Lemons, Ashley Graham, Kate Dillon, Anansa Sims, and Jennie Runk and focuses on excellent, up lifting advice such as we should stop nitpicking about minor flaws and feel comfortable in our bodies. Something us at Glamourplus already knew.
