Media Musings Blog Archive Elle Magazine slammed for featuring plus size model
Chaussures running asics outlet asics kayano 21 i love fashion magazines, but what makes me mad is the controversy that surrounds the size of the models that feature on their front covers.
In the past magazines have usually featured stick thin girls who look like they haven eaten in years. But now, the plus size model has become more socially acceptable (if you call it that) and has graced the front covers of magazines around the world.
McCarthy is dressed in an overcoat which is completely covering her, and this has many experts up in arms at the fact it is discriminating against those who are blessed with curves. Other thinner models are allowed to show chaussures running asics outlet some leg or cleavage, but poor McCarthy has been made to hide her body.
Celebrity psychotherapist Stacy Kaiser told FOX411, a disappointment the way they covered her up so much. It is sending the psychological message that hiding is what full figured women should do. Melissa is beautiful, talented and popular her beauty should be flaunted not covered shows that the fashion world is trying to strike the balance between featuring full figured women, while still hiding them as well,
Melissa McCarthy is not just a funny brilliant actress, she is also a beautiful person who has accepted the asics kayano 21 way she looks. She is forever being bullied about her weight and being covered like that is clearly sending the wrong messages to young girls who chaussures running asics outlet are struggling with their image.
Let us know what your thoughts are.

Good point Clare! They could of put her in a nice dress, rather than a huge all emcompassing coat,
What I find frustrating is how magazines only seem to feature the extremes, in terms of sizes. It either plus size, or stick thin size sixes. What about sizes 10, 12 or 14? Which is probably what most girls are.
Why don they show girls in bikinis with a bit of tummy? I don think it downgrades the product, the opposite in fact. It makes it more appealing for me, so that when I go to the shop or buy the article of clothing online I don try it on and feel upset that it doesn fit me in the right places!
There are so many body shapes around, I hope the fashion world will have to adapt to this, one day.
What I feel is most interesting is how this reaction might generate more interest and controversy and sell copies for ELLE Magazine.
Id like to think that if all sizes were accepted we wouldn have these arguments that rely on the assumption that women curves need to bare all and flaunt them.
If the chosen model was thiner, shorter, taller, blonder, had more freckles etc would we be outraged in her being cloaked in an oversized garment?
If we assert that she is up when she shouldn be then it legitimises the idea that there is something to hide.
I actually don mind the fact that McCarthy wearing a coat. It a nice coat and I reckon she sells it well which is what the designer is aiming for, of course.
But if we talking sales, I would argue (and I not a marketing or advertising expert, by any means) that there are a large proportion of plus size women who are more likely to buy a coat than a mini dress, so the choice makes sense.
What really irks me about this picture is the airbrushing. It is so out of control. Sure McCarthy wearing a big coat, but it looks asics kayano 21 like her body has been asics kayano 21 airbrushed out of it, there just air under there asics kayano 21 chaussures running asics outlet.
