This month’s cover of French Elle features Tara Lynn, a full figured American-born model. She is shown sporting hot pants, a lacy top and a pair of adorable black high heels. Speaking as one of the curvy girls, it’s refreshing to see some of the bigger magazine names introducing more voluptuous models to their pages. Tara Lynn has appeared on one other cover for Elle Magazine and she has also appeared in Italian Vogue’s June 2011 issue. She is currently signed with Ford Models
The popular idea of what a model should look like seems to be changing. If things keep going in this direction, we might see a lot more diversity in magazines and media alike for years to come. Maybe this is a big step for the modeling industry to begin a more realistic approach to modeling and fashion. Plus size celebrities in general seem to be a popular topic lately. Karl Lagerfeld commented on how he thinks singer Adele is “A little too fat” (A look of disgust shadows my face, but he has since apologized; So that does count for something… or not). Vogue doesn’t seem to agree with Karl Lagerfeld however. Adele will be featured on their March 2012 cover.
