V Magazine "Size Issue"

V Magazine's "Size Issue" hits newsstands today! I know there's been other size issues done by other magazines but this one is truly ground-breaking. It's a double cover issue with Dakota Fanning on one cover and "Precious" star Gaourey Sidibe on the other. In the pictures below models Crystal Renn (right) and Jacquelyn Jablonski (left) pose side by side in the same looks and poses. These photos are just a taste of what of what the issue has to offer with spreads shot by none other than Karl Lagerfeld and Terry Richardson among others. The issue is out to prove "fashion can flatter any figure." I'm hoping to pick up this issue today or this weekend.

I've always been a fan of fuller-figured models. There's a great site with many images of plus-size models here:

They're all gorgeous.

The site's forum also has thought-provoking discussions about body image and the media.
