Who Said Big Isn't Beautiful?22:57
This got me to thinking about why we do not see more people in the spotlight embracing their size and proving that you don't have to be a stick insect to look good. When it comes to size I feel it is a major taboo in the fashion industry. We live in a society now where it is drummed into us that to look good we have to be a size 0, and I will admit I have admired many models and envied their long slender bodies. But the one thing that has really got me thinking about the pressure to be so tiny in this industry are new photoshoots and campaigns I have seen lately starring Crystal Renn. She was a plus sized model, and absolutely stunning I might add, and I really admired her confidence and success to fit into a size 0 industry.
