Glamour To Put Crystal Renn on the Cover!
A lot of us in the plus size community - bloggers, fashion designers, models, are starting to feel like like the tides are turning. We've seen major breakthroughs in the visibility of plus size women in the media ...

Plus Size in Print 2010

*Gabby Sidibe & Monique getting tons of press and awards for Precious (and lots of red carpet looks that plus size women can actually buy!)

*V Magazine did a plus size issue with Gabby on the cover and several amazing plus size model spreads

*Marie Claire, one of my favorite magazines, launched a monthly article about plus sizes by a size 20 fashionista Ashley Falcon....and then MC took it a step further by reaching out to plus readers and fashion bloggers to find out what else we want

*Bergdorf Goodman in NYC has started to quietly sell plus sizes from select designers (mixed in with the straight sizes)

*Vogue Italia launches Vogue Curvy online

*Designer Mark Fast puts plus size women in two subsequent runway shows (although in the second one, they didn't look so hot...but still, an effort)

*Glamour, triggered by overwhelming reader response to a small picture of plus model Lizzie Miller with a tummy roll, pledges to use more plus models in their magazine.

And now the latest news.... Glamour is putting their money where their mouth is....Famous plus size model Crystal Renn is going to featured on the COVER of the June issue of Glamour Magazine!

Before you pass out from joy, I will note that she won't grace the cover alone (although she could rock it) but will be with very famous straight size model Alessandra Ambrosio and Sports Illustrated covergirl Brooklyn Decker.

Here's an on the set snapshot from the shoot:

It looks like it will be a beautiful cover! Are you excited?

    Brooklyn has bigger breasts and roughly the same sort of width of hip as Crystal. So is Brooklyn a larger model than we thought, or is Crystal now that much smaller?

    This photo is only worth looking at so we can compare the retouched final cover version to it and see whether Glamour is really doing good or evil. It's certainly not to look at D'Ambrosio's bones!
