Even if you take just a quick glance at Tara Lynn, Candice Huffine and Robyn Lawley on the June issue of Vogue Italia, you can tell that these women are not the typical gazelle-slender models. Lynn is a size 16; Huffine is a 12; Lawley is a 14. Three plus-size models, on the fashiony-est fashion magazine in the world.
According to Runway Revolution, it's been ten years since Vogue Italia featured a model over (US) size 8 on the cover (namely, Sophie Dahl). But Italian Vogue editor Franca Sozzani — who also created the "all black" issue of the magazine, came up with the concept of the "Vogue Black" and "Vogue Curvy" websites (and masterminded that oil spill photo shoot) — has shown she is eager to embrace diversity.
