IS French Elle trying to make up for something?
Just days after being forced to deny charges of racism — the glossy magazine is showing how open-minded it is by placing a plus-size model on its cover.
Tara Lynn flaunts her fabulous curves in a navy blue lacy top and knickers as the face of Elle’s plus size feature, which promises to give style advice to those who may not fit into size 8 clothes.
The lovely Tara Lynn has not only nabbed her second Elle France cover, she’s also front and center on the February issue beside the statement headline, “The Body.” This is a nice win for Lynn–who’s enjoyed a recent solo H&M campaign and that Italian Vogue shoot–but we’re always a little bummed when magazines cast a plus size girl and then make a big deal out of it.
It’s refreshing to see Elle.fr challenging stereotypes by placing a plus-size model on their cover.
Tara Lynn proudly displays her curves and it is clearly an issue close to the American model’s heart.
In an interview last year she admitted to being bullied at as a teenager. She said: ‘I was a size 14/16 (UK size 18-20) in high school, and it wasn’t the easiest thing.”
”As a 16, I definitely felt like my weight was holding me back.
”I was supposed to have these bones protruding from my body and clearly that’s not the case, and not the way my body’s meant to be.”
Now she is giving others the inspiration to embrace their curves. And she’s not the only one.
The Grammy award-winning singing artustm Adele is the cover girl of the March issue of British Vogue.
Adele said last week: ‘I’ve never wanted to look like models on the cover of magazines.”
”I represent the majority of women and I’m very proud of that.”
