<br>These days, new forms of "social networking" are proliferating on the Web almost monthly. But in the midst of all of this balkanization, we thought that it would be worth giving a shout-out to what is still our favourite type of Web presence, the good old-fashioned fan site--the kind that used to exist on domains like Geocities and Tripod years ago, during the less domesticated days of the Web.

MagicalMiaTyler.com is, as the name implies, a Web tribute for the well-known plus-size model. It features many examples of Mia's print and runway work from throughout her career--including, intriguingly, outtakes from some of her editorial layouts. In that, it reminds one of natalielaughlin.com, another fine site that features behind-the-scenes photos from the model's shoots.

Among MMT's most interesting finds are stills of Mia promoting Lane Bryant's <a href="http://www.magicalmiatyler.com/gallery.php?cat=507&show_thumb=1" target="_blank">Venezia</a> jeans, in the <a href="http://www.judgmentofparis.com/board/showthread.php?t=1591" target="_blank">V-Girls</a> campaign that we wrote about earlier this year, as well as a rare still image of Mia's unforgettable hands-in-the-hair moment during the 2000 Lane Bryant Cacique show, the <a href="http://www.judgmentofparis.com/board/showthread.php?t=1669" target="_blank">video</a> of which we posted recently.<p><center><img src="http://www.judgmentofparis.com/mt/lb01.jpg"></center><p>Be sure to visit the site for a larger version of the above image, for <a href="http://www.magicalmiatyler.com/gallery.php?show_image=115&cat=522&picno=4" target="_blank">this</a> photo (among our favourites), and for many more pictures of the trailblazing plus-size model.
