Arriving today at V Magazine’s website, the content looks ‘normal’ for an edgy, smart fashionista’s hangout.
Dree Hemingway, daughter of the gorgeous Mariel and granddaughter of literary giant, Dree Hemingway wears the iconic California girl looks of an all-American woman.
In the escalating battle to define the place of ‘real women’ in fashion’s visual beauty vocab — torched by the now infamous Ralph Lauren photoshop job on Filippa Hamilton and her firing for being ‘too fat’ — V Magazine’s following Glamour’s lead, featuring curvy and plus-size models in its January 2010 issue.
Karl Lagerfeld, Terry Richardson, Bruce Weber and the husband-wife team Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin will be in charge of the shoot. One woman photographer out of five isn’t bad, right?
Forget the fact that woman photographer Ellen von Unwerth is hotter than Hades right now.
Two months ago Karl Lagerfeld infamously told Focus magazine: “No one wants to see curvy women. You’ve got fat mothers with their bags of chips sitting in front of the television and saying that thin models are ugly.”
Models featured in the V Magazine ‘curvy girls’ issue are Crystal Renn, Kate Dillon, Hayley Morley, Mia Tyler, and Whitney Thompson.
“Big, little, pint-size, plus-size — every body is beautiful. And this issue is out to prove it,” exclaimed V Magazine editor-in-chief Stephen Gan.
