UK curves zine Just as Beautiful is now available in print. Of the plus-size interest publications, I consider this one by far the best in terms of content quality. Be warned, however, that they still play media you can’t shut off on their website. (No, really, EVERYBODY – stop that! It MUST be set to off or you lose people that check from work, and I know from my IP logs, that’s most site visitors.)
Coverage of last week’s OneStopPlus fashion show reached as far as Russia (I think it’s Russia, could be one of the other former Soviet block. For easy translation, view it in Google Chrome.)
“Vanity sizing” has now hit the meanswear department. Esquire Style Blog found this out in detail– and a simple way we can all put a stop to it. All you need do is bring a measuring tape with you, and use it as you shop. Think of all the dressing room frustration that can prevent!
The cover of Gabby Sidibe? Controversial for the lighting/lightening issue – but also, note that unlike their other cover models, they also opted not to show a full body shot of her. I just don’t know enough about photography to have a salient opinion here.
New Zealand’s Fashion Week also has some plus size representation.
