News__ PLUS VS. MINUS

December 22, 2009 | By

This January, V Magazine, created a plus size issue. Unfortunately, one spread shot by Terry Richardson oddly pits plus-size model, Crystal Renn against straight-size model, Jacquelyn Jablonksi. Plus vs. minus?

While the goal of the 8-page editorial is clear from the title, "One Size Fits All," the underlying message is a bit more complex. Why did V feel the need to include Jablonski? Why do plus-size models only show up in high fashion plus-size issues? What is the point of putting these two very different women next to each other in a twisted game of her vs. her?

Maybe one size fits all, but one standard should get lost.
