Finally, it’s happened.
American Vogue has just published a lingerie shoot featuring five stunning models – who all happen to be varying sizes, shapes and skin colours.
There are freckles, “flaws”, boobs and bums proudly on display, and each photo is breathtakingly gorgeous.
The spread is titled ‘The Best Lingerie Comes in All Sizes’ and features models Candice Huffine, Tara Lynn, Inga Eiriksdottir, Marquita Pring, and Ashley Graham. All five are members of ALDA, a body-positive alliance formed in 2013 after the Ford modelling agency shut its ‘plus-size’ division, leaving many models out of work.
The shots were captured by photographer Cass Bird, who posted a photo from the spread on Instagram captioned, “My kind of #supermodels.”
High five, Cass, and high five, Vogue.
Because this photoshoot is a celebration of diversity, and one that is particularly welcome at the moment. Just last week, we had size-10 Calvin Klein model Mya Delbesio touted as ‘plus-size’, and who could forget the giant face-palm that was Victoria’s Secret’s ‘Perfect Body’ campaign?
