Remember The Time…

I told you guys about the V magazine issue with plus size models in this post. Well…. we have a little sneak peak here.

They show two models of different builds but similiar looks. In this case you have Jacquelyn Jablonski: 5 ft, 9 in; 32/24/34 and Crystal Renn: 5 ft, 9 in; 36/31/41. They put them in the same clothes with the same styling and hair. Then they told them to do similar poses for photographer Terry Richardson. At first I wasn’t to keen on the idea of doing a skinny vs. not so skinny shoot, but I must say Crystal Renn fills the clothes out nicely. I really would like to see more of that on the runway. Not to say that skinny models should be banned all together now. I realize that people come in all shapes and sizes, therefore there should be a mix of sizes in stores and on the runway.

Elle Goes Gaga

From Black Book:

Lady Gaga gets her first major fashion magazine cover with Elle’s December issue (a bit surprising that Vogue didn’t beat Elle to the punch considering Gaga was in Conde Nast’s offices earlier this fall — although she did make it into the former’s November edition). Relatively tame in a black corset and thick black eyeliner, the pop star looks decidedly Madonna-esque on the cover. Inside the issue, Gaga even fesses up her ten-year plan that seems even more unexpectedly tame than the cover photo: “In eight to 10 years, I want to have babies for my Dad to hold, grandkids. And I want to have a husband who loves and supports me, just the way anyone else does.” That said, she assures independent women: “I would never leave my career for a man right now, and I would never follow a man around.”
