Plus Size Model on Cover of French Elle


The lovely model Tara Lynn has landed the front cover of French Elle Magazine recently, 
this is actually her second cover on Elle, in addition, this lovely plus size model also has done some shots for H&M (Big is Beautiful Swimwear Line) as well as Italian Vogue. 

I wanted to do a short and simple post on this because quite honestly we are not a society of "perfect" bodies, not one person is like the other, we all have imperfections...having said that I think it's beautiful when a major magazine showcases a model that quite honestly represents a lot of girls out there today!

That is why I believe Elle Magazine calls her "The Body" on the front cover, because she represent what regular women look like, which is not the typical thin and photo-shopped woman that we usually see in magazines or runway shows!  
Could this be a start of a new trend -- Moving away from models that are paper thin and moving towards embracing and recognizing models that the average woman all over the world can relate to?

I truly believe that having plus size models featured in magazines gives young girls and women the courage to just embrace their curves and it gives them the inspiration that they can be whatever they wish regardless of their size.

  4. Great post. She is a gorgeous model, lovely curves. Much more realistic than the usual stick thin models. I have nothing against skinny ladies but i think curvier women shouldbe recognized in the fashion and beauty industry much more.

  6. Amen! I couldn't agree more. However, i find it sad the we would call her a plus size model, to me, she is anything but a plus size model.

  20. There's always a small amount of buzz whenever a plus-sized model lands a fashion first. Excitement is mixed with the disbelief of naysayers. I want to be a plus size model
