All Women's Weekend

All Women's Weekend: "Curvy Deliciousness
October 27th, 2009 | Author: admin

Remember when I blogged about Lizzie Miller? Apparently, that small photo featured in Glamour on page 194 sparked thousands of readers to send great feedback about how the magazine is holding up the true beauty of a woman.

And I quote:
The picture wasn’t of a celebrity. It wasn’t of a supermodel. It was of a woman sitting in her underwear with a smile on her face and a belly that looks…wait for it…normal.

The 'woman on p. 194.' Gorgeous!

And wait, there’s more!

These are size 12-18 plus-size models who represent the normal women. I would never be a size 4 even in my skinniest. At size 6, I looked like a skeleton with skin – I look great at size 12! And I am so happy that FINALLY magazines like Glamour are going to be featuring REAL women soon!


These Bodies are Beautiful at Every Size Group Shot

* A promise to give the best plus models not just work, but the same great work straight-size models get, partnering with top photographers, stylists and makeup artists. Because a generous helping of fantasy, in our view, is fabulous—as long as it’s extended to women of all sizes.
* An ongoing celebration of the so-called imperfections, from nose bumps to gap teeth smiles, that make us all unique.
* Enthusiastic support for any designer who manufactures chic clothes we can photograph on full-bodied models. Isn’t it time for changes like these? Reality, after all, is everywhere. On Twitter, Demi Moore tweets matter-of-factly about her body: “I still have excess skin & stretch marks!” And then, “Comes with having a few kids 4 some of us!” Scott Schuman, a.k.a. the Sartorialist, has attracted a cult following by photographing real people with great style—and quirks. Crystal Renn has written a fascinating new memoir about her transition from an anorexic straight-size model to a healthy, exuberant and very successful plus-size model. And Jeffrey Buchman, professor of advertising and marketing communications at the Fashion Institute of Technology, notes that Renn and plus-size model Johanna Dray have shown up on runways at Jean Paul Gaultier and John Galliano, respectively. “Art leads social change, and high fashion is art,” says Buchman. “So these are not frivolous choices;"

Learning English from net maybe isn't the Best idea ,but in that time my children still were at home, and my only solution was learning English from net. During years i met so many sweet people who helped me lot with English language. I wanna thank to all and each of that fantastic friends. I started to write this post ,with clear toughs about using "Mature woman" as description of myself. Most of net users first tough about words:Mature Women is little dirty tough. But in my language is OK,even more than OK to say:I AM MATURE WOMAN! Well my dear readers I AM VERY PROUD MATURE WOMAN! TAKE IT OR LIVE IT!!!!
