The EveryBody is Beautiful spread featured in the V Magazine earlier this month sparked so much press ( before it even hit the newsstands!!!!!!) with the celebration of fuller figured models. These images were everywhere you can imagine, the Internet, magazines, on every entertainment news show across the world. There was backlash , as well as praise, but one thing that was certain was that all bodies are not created equal, but they are beautiful nonetheless. This tour de force editorial was a collaboration by photographer Sølve Sundsbø and style powerhouse Nicola Formichetti , these images more than made its mark in Fashion History. It was like something out of a movie, not realistic - ( ironically it is real) , but not realistic to whats beautiful or as you say "Haute" in the Fashion world. This is yet another barrier that has been broken in regards to crashing the single minded views on what / who should be featured in Fashion . So many women felt a sense of empowerment, and even a little boost of confidence after seeing this editorial, which is always a good thing.
With the help of Elvi ( which is currently holding a HUGE sale with a discount of 70% on items!!!!!) , the everyday Full Figured woman can get her "sexy back" with these stellar options in plus size fashion . Elvi offers fashion options for women size 16 and up, from Trousers, Dresses, Outerwear to Accessories, Elvi is the one-stop shop for the Full Figured Fashionistas fashion needs. This website allows you to shop by outfit for the current season , in addition to providing outfit ideas ( for the less fashion confident ladies out there - think "Real Women Have Curves" ). I applaud Elvi for having such a great selection for women who often have a hard time looking for clothes that fit, that they would also want to wear.
