But the question is, why is an obese mannequin causing such a stir, yet no one is upset about all the superskinny stick-figure mannequins that currently reside in store windows? Shouldn’t we be upset about those as well?

honestly anyone who even remotely cares about the size of a mannequin should be beaten with the skinny end of a fishing pole until properly shamed
It's not that we should promote the larger sized mannequins as healthy because we need more mannequins that are in-between sizes. if you're shocked then you need to grow up. If we used a gamut of sizes for mannequins the shoppers would get a better visual of how the advertised clothes actually fit, instead of going in trying something on and walking out disappointed because the garment doesn't look as good on the real body as it does on a big ultra-skinny plastic doll.
Keep the big guy mannequin, and add more sizes of mannequins to the mix. Why is a size 12 so bad? We don't stay in children's sizes forever and we shouldn't be expected to. Forcing the heavier folks to hunt for their garments isn't going to make them meet your expectations of a healthy weight either.
Rejoice in different figure sizes and shapes and stop being so blasted hyper-sensitive to life.

To refresh our fall closet, we look to eight chic cliques, from the front-row power couples to street-style bloggers. Even better? Getting the look of your favorite tribe has never been easier—everything we’ve pulled is $100 or less.
Autumn is upon us, and we’ve got sweaters, coats and booties on our minds! Below are the first things we’ll be buying (or have already bought!) to kick off next season.
As autumn approaches and the opportunity for days spent lying by the beach begins to wind down, there comes a time to trade the sand-strewn sandals of summer in for the bright, shiny new footwear of fall.

From animal print to glittery, hiking to fringed, our fall boots include everything you need to start the season off on the right foot.
No matter what the era, denim is always a staple. From blue to black, acid-washed, studded, and shredded, there’s a denim to fit any mood (or body type).

Beachy waves, soft strands—you can have the dream locks you've always wanted.
You already know wearing white after Labor Day is cool. But menswear is reinventing itself rapidly, leaving some long-held mandates by the wayside, not to mention a bunch of men with a lot of questions. Sure, some style laws are truly inviolable. Showing a quarter-inch of cuff will always be crucial, but with designers and dandies flaunting so many former taboos it's hard to tell what's in play these days. So we thought we'd take this opportunity to let you know which rules no longer apply.
With every changing season, our shopping lists seem to grow and grow and grow . . . and yet our bank accounts somehow stay exactly the same!

Whether you’re yearning for cozy knits, statement necklaces, or bold graphic pieces, our Fall Fashion Guide gives you the best looks—all for less than $100.
Allow us to be frank: Fashion Week is a bit of a misnomer. What with the global sprawl of shows—from New York to London to Milan to Paris—it really should be Fashion Month. (Or Fashion Forever.)

Here, find out what to do, eat, see, wear, and keep your eye on this season.
