We have seen another high end fashion magazine (albeit an international one) display the beauty of the plus size woman. I immediately jumped to internet to find the images of the anticipated Special Roundes Issue of ELLE France! Inside the Elle France Curvy Issue, were more than a few celebratory moments for plus size fashion.
EIGHTEEN images make up the spread of Tara Lynn in all her vivacious glory! I am in love! Okay, so asides from the spread, I am even more psyched that they featured French plus size fashion bloggers! YES! Valerie from Blog to be Alive, Stephanie from Le Blog de Big Beauty, and Lisa from Modeuses Rondes!

So what does this fashion spread look like?
For starters, I am happy that they featured a variety of designers- not just high fashion mainstream who have done a feature piece for the shoot, but a variety of designers, showing the likes of Marina Rinaldi, Ralph Lauren Black Label, and Max Mara– sprinkled with a dash of Gucci and Hermes!

The issue features stories, plus size features, and designers that cater to the plus size body… in ways that we have yet to see happen in the US market. Which magazine do you think will be the first to level us up? To show the US American woman some love? You know, the 60+% of us who rock a size 14 and above?
What do you think? Do you like this feature? Do you think that there could have been more offered in this issue?
Can we realllyyyy talk about it?
I am excited… now, the question is, when will an American magazine give us a proper full frontal plus size fashion spread like our international friends?
