"Every Body is a Hot Body"

Crystal Renn- a plus-size model who overcame anorexia, Alessandra Ambrosio- Victoria's Secret model, and Brooklyn Decker, recent Sports Illustrated swimsuit cover, grace this month's issue of Glamour to celebrate the diversity in body types. Read a snippet of the interview here. I'm sort of torn on this cover. On one hand, I'm all for seeing more curves in the fashion industry and women appreciating their own body. On the other hand, I'm not sure having three models is the way to do show body diversity.


What do you think? Would you choose someone different to be on the cover?

I feel like the plus size model doesn't represent the plus-size world. She's beautiful and I'm sure she has a great story, but someone who has a different body might be nice.

I'm with Molly - she does not look plus size at all. She's gorgeous but I wouldn't call her plus size.

I just read this magazine yesterday and was actually really put off by the fact that she is considered "plus-size"???? Seriously? No doubt that she isn't rail thin, but plus-size? I think that's a little crazy?!

Omg, that girl is not plus-sized. Yeah, how does this represent body diversity expect for "be thin like these girls"?

Eh, well this is how society is :-/

i agree, she doesn't look "plus sized"; they should have put 3 avg. girls on the cover!

I couldn't even tell she was "plus size" until the final photo!

I am currently doing the Brooklyn Decker Bikini Revolution cardio workout, it is hard but she is darling. And not totally perfect (although pretty damn close).
