2010 Plus Size Model = 1980 Average Size Model

2 Nov

Lisa Tant, Editor in Chief of Flare Magazine tweeted this article and I could not help my curiosity and had to read it.

The article discusses Crystal Renn, a very popular plus size model of the present time, and Paulina Porizkova, a supermodel during the 1980s. The two women attended the Glamour Women of the Year Conference and touched upon the subject of plus size vs straight size models. Paulina could not help but call attention to the crowd, by having the two women stand side by side, that there is not a big different between the two women; yet Crystal is in the year 2010 considered a plus size model, while Paulina in the 1980s was considered a swim suit model. It is evident that times have changed.
