Scattered among rumors about Hollywood’s A through D-listers on People’s “News” section are human interest stories that I generally avoid. Today there was a headline about sisters meeting each other for the first time at 9 and 10 years old (too boring), some dog who found a home after losing an eye (too sad), and a…
You're not just imagining it: Suddenly, plus-size models are higher profile and they're getting more jobs.
After three years of successful runway modeling for top labels like Marc Jacobs, Lanvin, and Yves Saint Laurent, Karolin Wolter was tired of rigid diets and self-loathing in front of the mirror, so she made a risky decision. She became a plus-size model.
Plus-size model Candice Huffine made the cover of Spain's S Moda magazine — naked, as we see so often with plus-size models.

One researcher has found something that should surprise nobody: women want to buy clothes more if they see them on models who look like them. Will advertisers actually take notice?
With models like Crystal "Vogue Paris" Renn becoming true crossover stars, and agents like Gary Dakin of Ford+ reporting so much demand that he turns work down, it seems like the fashion industry is finally starting to recognize the beauty of bodies that aren't runway-sample-sized. Here are five plus-size models we…
Magazines are celebrating curves! As long as they stay within the narrow size requirements.
I was recently reading my favorite gossip site and saw a post about a gorgeous plus-sized model. You don't have to worship at the altar of size acceptance to acknowledge that this is a beautiful woman. She's a model!
After Crystal Renn walked in Chanel's resort show last week, looking beautiful and fierce, there was a flurry of "OOH GROUNDBREAKING!" buzz about the pictures, given that Crystal is nominally plus-sized and Karl Lagerfeld has made some colorfully fat-phobic comments.
