Apparently there's a magazine called V and they are doing an issue with plus size women. By plus size, they mean size 10 or 12. I found out about it in today's NYTimes at http://www.nytimes.com/2010/01/10/fashion/MODEL.html
I applaud this effort. I mean, look at these women. They look great!
I am a feminist and I like to look good. What we consider beautiful is influenced by the culture we live in. I live in the USA which generally defines beautiful women as women who are young, white, blond, blue eyed, skinny, and tall.
Well, I am none of those. I am ethnically Chinese, short, and a size 8-ish.
I know, there are plenty of people in the US who would also find that attractive, even without the creeps who fetishize Asian women. And my ego being what it is, I think that I no matter my age, I'd be able to get a good and good looking man.
I haven't bought a fashion magazine in a while but I'm going to look for this one.
And look for the Asian American magazines that address fashion. I know they're out there!
