I heard about this whole Crystal Renn spread in V magazine and while she isn't all that plus these days, I gotta say the image of having both the "traditional model" and the "plus model" in the same spread, seemed well...natural! What are your thoughts!

Yeah there is much to do about her so called "dissapearing act" nonetheless as it stands she is so not the "traditional" size and the spread sent a message that was way bigger (pardon the pun) than Crystal Renn. Clearly, both sizes looked great on the same page...why can't this be accomplished on the runways?!?

A runway isn't intended to sell ads in magazines marketed towards consumers. It exists to sell clothing to buyers of retail stores and to showcase new items for the press. They are two different business purposes which are unrelated.

The funny thing is that I don't see a plus size girl in any of those photos!! The "plus" size girl is probably only a size 8 or 10 while the "regular" girl is probably a 0 or 2.

The AD could have easily been been selling a fashion show event featuring both sizes of the spectrum. If their goal is to sell clothing to buyers of retail stores wouldn't it make sense to showcase the different sizes, particularly if your buying for a retail chain that carries an array of sizes?

Which just goes to show you how far the industry has to go.
That will be the next debate though.
