Between me, you, and the world wide web I’m fascinated with the fashion world. Growing up I wanted to become a fashion designer. I even remember making clothes for my Barbies!
Why am I so excited?
Because SKINNY IS NOT IN AT FASHION PARIS WEEK.
It’s about freaking time people. The average American woman is 5'4", weighs 140 lbs, and wears a size 14 dress. Not only did they use different sized models on the runway, they used older ones too. Elle MacPherson walked the runway at the 2010 Louis Vuitton Ready-to-Wear show during Paris Fashion Week at the ripe old age of 46.
The new curvy look comes after designer Karl Lagerfeld, in response to criticism over skinny models at European fashion weeks, told reporters: “Nobody wants to look at round women.”
HA! Tell that to my husband. (or any of my past boyfriends ) There are definitely those men who appreciate curves. I guess you can tell what category I fit in. It’s not the fashion per se that I’m happy about but the message they are sending to world and more importantly to the young woman.
Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. And Curves ARE In. Spread the word.
Now where's my chocolate?
