This Korean Vogue Girl "Big Beauty" Fashion Spread features a very adorable model who seems to be big busted and healthy rather than all around plus-size if you ask me. I saw the icon to this spread and was thrilled to see an Asian model of these proportions for the first time in my life! Then... I saw the pictures (and as much as I love food) I thought this was so degrading. I wanted to give her a hug and tell her she is so much more than this food monger they portray. (Update 3/13/10 - I think my thoughts are being read as I believed the photographer was mocking her weight when in fact I think he/she thought this was an open-minded shoot! I believe the intentions were good, but the idea we have to make a statement about a models personal life if she is ever outside of the norm, is what is close-minded.)
What are your thoughts?
