Vogue Italia has launched a new site called Vogue Curvy! It’s dedicated to the fashion and entertainment industry’s plus icons. Vogue Italia hit gold with last years “Black Issue” and now they’re trailblazing again through this endeavor. Perhaps others will find the guts to be so progressive.
The new site launched with plus super models Crystal Renn photographed by the legendary Steven Meisel
and Lizzie Miller
The Curvy Can Initiative has also launched through the magazine. Here’s a re-post from the website:
“Six ex-“size 0” models come together to increase awareness about eating disorders
Their names are Aija Barzdina, Eleonora Finazzer, Elisa D’Ospina, Miriam Bon, Marina Ferrari and Valentina Fogliani. Each one has had her own career as a “regular” model, as well as a difficult relationship with food. Today, they’ve found happiness in their “real” sizes, which they flaunt in this shot by photographer Luca Patrone for the launch of Curvy Can, a national campaign created from a collaboration with Jonas Onlus. The aim is to promote the idea of body awareness as an important part of female beauty, and to help women feel confident about their own unique beauty. The group Curvy Can is also active on Facebook.”
