Though the fashion world seems to be in favor of all things thin, ELLE Quebec goes against the norm displaying a plus size model on the cover of their May 2013 issue. Justine LeGault, a Canadian model, displays her size 14 frame proudly on the cover of this month’s issue. Internet commentators and editors alike are singing high praises of the magazine for taking a bold stance on getting other magazines to feature more shapely women.
With that being said, let’s hope the tides are being turned. Being a plus size woman myself I am definitely pulling for fashion magazines to feature full figured women.
Take a look at the cover here.
