The trend isn't that surprising, but when I looked at some of the pictures, I was delightfully shocked. The models are not surprisingly beautiful, but their bodies look real. They have not just curves, but natural folds, and they're gorgeous. Even better, they get to wear the good stuff -- Versace, Chanel, and more. The stuff I only dream of wearing.
I wish I'd been able to see something like this in a magazine when I was 16 years old. Even at my age, I get a little thrill about Seven jeans being available at Lane Bryant. Maybe the door to a more realistic image of women's bodies and a healthier standard for beauty is opening a little.
