Today's episode of the Oprah Winfrey show featured several plus-size girls modelling jeans. As these models were selected from the recent Glamour shoot, none of our current favourite goddesses showed up, unfortunately.

Here's the video. The models appear at 00:58:

Although the final comments from the Oprah magazine editor are meant to be encouraging, it's still infuriating to hear the use of anorexic models being defended on the grounds of "fantasy and aspiration." Plus-size models are far more beautiful and aspirational than androgynous waifs, and can create far more compelling fantasies.
