i have to say, i think curves are making a comeback. im not talking about 50s-style curves necessarily.. but i think the malnourished look is moving into the background of fashion. it all started for me when kate moss gained a couple pounds, then lara stone became carine's chosen one, then i felt the trend of marie antoinette-esque pastries entering, and now the freja look that i was once indifferent to seems kinda passé to me..
i now get a neurotic feeling from that look, and a more pretty-chic when theres an extra few pounds. its not really a luxurious existence when you are depriving yourself of everything... its actually when i am my most miserable. perhaps this shift has to do with my fascination with individual style, and how people wear things
differently based on their bodies and their personal aura. i have lately stopped fretting about weight and been thinking more about enjoying my youth; wrinkle free skin and healthy hair, for example. this may also have to do with my increasing disinterest .. well i'll just quote my friend mosha, "for spring, i am feeling pretty again. take that, balmania."
these images were sent to me by her a while back. this editorial is for v magazine and was shot by terry richardson. both models are wearing sample sizes. i dont prefer one model over the other.. thats interesting, isnt it?
