Marina Rinaldi Proves Plus Size Gals Can Wear Prints Too

Candice Huffine and Laura Catterall for Marina Rinaldi
Candice Huffine and Laura Catterall prove that plsu size girls can wear prints too in Marina Rinaldi’s S/S 13 ad campaign. They look pretty hot if you ask me. I was finally able to visit a Marina Rinaldi store when I went to Monaco. It was divine. I think there is one in New York City. I might have to check that out the next time I am in the city. Click here for a video and the rest of the campaign.

Elena Miro SS 13

 

Every Milan fashion week I look forward to the Elena Miro plus size clothing fashion show. This year she featured four 12 + UK models in her delightfully tribal, yet elegant show. I love these clothes. These are the clothes I wish other designers would make for plus size women. There was nothing frumpy about this collection and the models really pulled it off. They look gorgeous! Photos from 12 + UK Model Management.

Plus Size Models Grace The Cover Of Vogue Italia

Plus Size Models on Vogue Italia Cover

Plus size models Tara Lynn, Candice Huffine and Robyn Lawley, grace this Steven Miesel Vogue Italia cover.This cover is so beautiful. I know some people will probably have a problem with plus size models being seen half naked and around food again, but the cover is so beautiful. I am so happy to see plus size models on the cover of a MAYJAH fashion magazine. As always, thought? Photo from Models.com.

Vogue Shows More Diversity

Just like the fashion industry needs to show more plus size models and Black models, they need to show more Asian models too. The world is not full of one type of person. This December’s Vogue, the one with Angelina Jolie on the cover, will feature an editorial with Asian only models. Now if only we could get an equal representation of all kinds of models in each mag. I’m tired of these special cases. If this were normalized, we wouldn’t need special editorials. How do you all feel about this?

L–R: Du Juan, Tao Okamoto, Lee Hyun, Hyoni Kang, Liu Wen, Bonnie Chen, So Young Kang, and Lily Zhi.

Paris Fashion Week Is Still Going On!!!

As much as I love paying attention to all of the different fashion weeks, it can get overwhelming. Can you imagine if I had to travel to all of them. I did New York this year that was crazy. I mean it was fun, but it was crazy ripping and running all over town, and doing homework, and doing blog work. Anyway….I think Paris Fashion Week ends on Wednesday. In the meantime, check out these collections. Photos from Style.com.

John Galliano designed some kind of sailor themed Christian Dior show that seemed more Gilligan’s Island than anything. It wasn’t bad. When I heard the reports of a sailor themed show, I said to myself uh-oh not another sailor themed fashion show, but I liked it. I think it was the colors and prints that did it for me.
Dior
Cacharel was beautiful. The colors were amazing. The prints were amazing! Very impressed with what I saw. I would buy so many of the dresses in that show. They were so bright and beautiful.
Cacharel
Jean Paul Gaultier gets a standing ovation from me. He used plus sized models again. AGAIN! He used Beth Ditto, Crystal Renn, and Marguita Pring. The collection was inspired by rock and roll and Joan Jett, hence the wigs.
John Paul Gaultier
Viktor & Rolf’s collection was inspired by the men’s shirt. I love how they took said inspiration and made pants that looked like they were made from shirt arms, and big linebacker tops that looked like shirt exploded many times over. The design duo always know how to create something creative that you might not have thought of doing before.
