Anna Wintour Promises Curvy Models
Always one to be on top of the latest fashion movements, Anna Wintour has (finally) vowed to use curvier models in Vogue.
The legendary magazine editor has promised to include larger beauties in upcoming issues of the US fashion bible after the success of their January 2010 cover shot image of 25-year-old model Lara Stone, which she hopes will encourage other publishers to avoid skeletal models.
“Vogue has always been supportive of healthy models and will continue to be so in the future. And I hope that Lara’s success as a model, even though her image does not fit into the existing norm, will inspire the industry to rethink its current preferences.”
The busty beauty - who has a UK size 8 figure - recently admitted she wishes she wasn’t the only curvaceous model: “I’m different because I am fat. It would be nice if I wasn’t the only person with t*ts and an a**e. If I could have the discipline to be super-skinny I would be. I think of dieting, then I eat pizza. I’m a woman, and every woman wants to be thinner - unfortunately.”
