Crystal Renn and Jacquelyn Jablonski in V magazine’s “size issue”

In their latest venture, V Magazine tackled fashion’s obsession with weight in what they’re calling their “Size Issue.”

Their preview featured two models, Crystal Renn and Jacquelyn Jablonski, posing in identical looks from Proenza Schouler‘s spring 2010 runway. The only difference was in the model’s dress measurements; Jacquelyn is a standard-sized runway model and Crystal Renn qualifies as a plus-size model.

For decades artists have used contrasting imagery to achieve different aesthetic goals.

    Great post. the meaty model is sexier imo, she lacks the generic look most waif models have these days. she’s killing that first outfit and pose.

    It’s like this one dress Trina had on versus the same dress the model on djpremium- the model looked HORRIFIC she didn’t fill out the dress and did it no justice.

    sometimes curves are needed, i wonder when the industry, esp in america, will realize that more women are not size twos and that they would look just as slammin in some of these high fashion outfits.

    I think the fashion industry should have more diversity. Every model does not have to be a size 0, they can have thick girls too
