Kate Moss out and Kate Upton in ?
I love seeing more curves on cover magazines. Mostly when it is on the world´s most famous fashion magazine.
Don´t expect a stick figure on the cover of Vogue UK this month. This time, it is Bodacious Kate Upton who Vogue has chosen to be on the Cover.
Shot for the second time by fashion photographer Mario Testino, Kate Upton shows off her curves in a beautiful 50s style bikini while relaxing on the beach in the Caribbean. She wears a chic floral Dolce & Gabbana swimsuit with a high waist that evokes a fabulous retro vibe.
Many will probably disagree with the choice of having Upton on the Vogue magazine. But I am pretty sure, Kate Upton is on her way to becoming the supermodel of our generation. At the age of 20, she has been the talk of the fashion world and she is only continuing to get bigger.
We are witnessing a change in the world of modeling. Looking like a drug addict seems to be on its way out. Full figured, Kate Upton has become the hottest model. And not only Upton, curvy Ashley Graham poses in a two-piece bathing suit on the cover of Elle Québec. TWILFIT has also changed their direction on representing what beauty really is. In 2012, they had a campaign called ” EVERY BODY ” The Swedidh lingerie brand TWILFIT are breaking the one ideal of a woman´s body and that no “body” should be discrimated. TWILFIT shows that it is not a one time phenomena by lauching also this year, their new advertising featuring women with diverse body shape. None of these models come close to fitting into a size zero skinny jeans and yet they are featured on “la crème de la crème” of fashion magazines.
The latest TWILFIT´s swimsuits advertising. Thumb up for the Swedish brand!
Richard Blandino, bookings director at GQ,agrees that skeletal models don´t cut it anymore. “ I look for a healthy body with curves in all the right places”.
If Upton ended up on the Cover Vogue, it means that even skinny-loving Vogue Editor-in-Chief Anna Wintour is coming around.
These women are the women we see around us everyday. Women with a real body. Let´s hope it will become more and more a standard when it comes to fashion. It will definitely help young girls to be inspired and embrace their full figures.
