“The stylist took out this tight corset dress and said, ‘Here, put it on,’ and I was like, ‘Who are you kidding?”    -L.S.

I know the January Vogue article about Miss Lara Stone has been read and talked about by many but I am still constantly thinking about her words. It has been a statement in the making, placing the body of the classic Supermodel on the pages of Vogue, Bazaar, and all of the European editions. Although this woman’s body is no where near average, it has been so refreshing to see her not only in editorials and ads, but also working the runway like the rest of the young models whom don’t stray from the ever-popular size 0. I can not imagine the daily scrutiny in the life of a model and many of us already fight with our own sense of self and body dissatisfaction daily without the help of others. So this is a beautiful thing for Vogue to include in the first issue of the new year. Yes, it has been done before but it is always appreciated by me and I am sure many American women. These magazines should continue to not shy away from body image articles and to let us know there is some humanity within the pages.

“It’s like, come on, she’s a woman; whether you’re buying jeans at the mall or wearing couture, you know what it’s like for clothes not to fit. It’s not an easy kind of rejection, because it’s very personal. It’s you, your body. You take it to heart.”     -L.S.
