Fashion Mag Says No Skinnies Allowed
There’s been a trend lately towards women with curves and away from skinny Minnie models that look unhealthy—and this trend is
continuing to take the fashion and media world by storm.
According to the Daily Mail, UK fashion magazine Slink is helping to promote healthy body images with a bimonthly publication devoted to curvy ladies. The fashion and beauty magazine, geared towards fuller-figured women, is led by editor Rivkie Baum, who was a size 22 as a teenager.

“Rivkie has banned ‘straight’ models (the industry term for girls size 10 and below) from her magazine,” says the Daily Mail. Instead of using runway images like most magazines, Baum uses a fashion illustrator to “‘supersize’ the catwalk looks, showing exactly how they would appear on a fuller figure.” The magazine takes it a step further by banning diet and plastic surgery ads from its pages as well.

Three summers ago, I bought a pair of soft, white-calfskin Chanel loafers. I spent months trying to keep them pristine, but it wasn’t long before a July thunderstorm left them and me soaked. I began steeling myself for what I thought was inevitable: a solemn drop in the trash. But once the loafers dried, I found the shoes’ stained stitching—now storm-cloud gray—was lovely and a few new wrinkles in the leather were charming, like smile lines for shoes. I started to wear them freely—taking on puddles and tossing them onto the sand at the beach—and before long, they transformed. The roughened toe-tops reminded me of a welcoming, worn armchair, and a wet-and-hot summer had molded the material perfectly to my feet.
