My girl Lara and the size issue

"I've never thought of Lara as fat", says Mario Testino, "It's just a matter of different shapes". And Lara proved this year that shape DOES MATTER in the world of fashion. Even Karl Lagerfeld, known to be a strong supporter of skinny models on the catwalks, adores her. She struggled to be a size 4 model in the world of 0 and her story is depicted in a touching way in the January issue of US Vogue.
The size problem is a major theme of the last issue of V Magazine with a wonderful photo session on the topic by Terry Richardson. The conclusion is -girls be proud of your curves!

  1. She looks stunning and I don't even see her as a girl with a larger size! She is amazing!

  2. She's my favorite model too, but it seems she had a tough fight (including alcohol abuse)with the 0 SIZE stereotype in the fashion world. I hope that the fact that she is the face of so many covers, brands and collections this year, shows that things are changing in the right direction.
