Happy New Size!

Just in time for all of those women out there who have set their 2010 weight-loss resolutions, more photos from V Magazine's Size Issue, an all-body-types answer to Vogue Italia's ultra famous Black Issue, have hit the webwaves over at models.com.

The issue will hit newstands on January 14th and is subtly positioning itself as a collector's piece (as if all V Magazine issues aren't collector's items in their own right anyway). It's definitely poised to shake the fashion landscape as we know it for 2010 and beyond.

Not sure about you guys, but I'm thoroughly excited about fashion editors, photographers and other creative minds around the world coming together to rip the seams of our favorite but often stoic, pro-skinny, pro-white past time.

To put these revolutions in perspective, just think... if there were never similar revolutions in the dance world for example, we may never have seen an Alvin Ailey or a Bob Fosse which would have canceled out a significant portion of Beyonce's most memorable choreography throughout her career.

Ultimately, I believe some of the most beautiful creations our world has to offer arise from nature and beauty itself breaking free from the chains and cages man attempts to enslave them with. It's exciting to watch it unfold.

I'll keep you all posted on any other sneak peeks from the issue.

I've always been a fan of fuller-figured models. There's a great site with many images of plus-size models here:


They're all gorgeous.

The site's forum also has thought-provoking discussions about body image and the media.
