Yes, we can!



Holy Shit on a sidecar--have you seen this picture yet? This photo actually appeared in Glamour magazine's September issue. I am so excited to see this picture of plus-size model Lizzie Miller that I can barely contain my joy. Although it does seem absurd that she is considered plus-size she is definitely not your average skeletal model.

And the really good news is that Glamour has gotten loads of positive feedback on the image. I'm not surprised, really, since most women look much more like Lizzie Miller than they do most super-skinny models. Also, According to Jezebel Glamour is planning to do a whole spread of fatty models very soon! Yippee!

I've always been a fan of plus-size 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.

LORDISA thank you for posting this. I had NOT seen it. There used to be a magazine called MODE, which had all "plus sized" models. It went away, but I have kept many of them, just as a reminder. These images are so important!
