Read This: V Magazine's Size Issue

V Magazine plans to make a splash with Issue #63,The Size Issue, which features top plus-size model Crystal Renn alongside newcomer—and more traditional model body-type—Jacquelyn Jablonski.

Appropriately titled “One Size Fits All,” Terry Richardson’s photo spread showcases Renn and Jablonski side-by-side in identical looks, matching sample size outfits and similar poses. The effect is a powerful one that proves fashion can flatter any figure - in fact, I'd argue that Renn looks even better.

Most recently, Renn—who has walked the runway for Jean-Paul Gaultier and graced the cover of Vogue—famously penned her own weight and body image struggles within the model industry in a memoir entitled “Hungry: A Young Model’s Story of Appetite, Ambition and the Ultimate Embrace of Curves,” which was released this fall.

V63 hits newsstands January 14, 2010. Will you be picking up a copy?

I've always been a fan of fuller-figured models. There's a great site with many images of Crystal and other plus-size models here:

They're all gorgeous.

The site's forum also has thought-provoking discussions about body image and the media.
