<br>Happy New Year to all Judgment of Paris readers.

The last decade has seen many triumphs and many challenges for the aesthetic restoration. The industry lost its most beautiful talent and its best magazine, but it gained many exciting young models who are now bringing the Classical aesthetic to a new generation.

Plus-size modelling is more in danger than ever before of being compromised by diminishing itself to suit modern standards, but when it is true to itself, when goddesses who are gorgeous and visibly full-figured are depicted in ways that showcase and celebrate their natural curves, they bring the world closer to rediscovering the timeless ideal.

Moreover, the general public finally appears to be reacting against the modernist imposition, and seeking the restoration of all traditional values--not just in beauty, but in every aspect of cultural life.

Let us hope that the 2010s finally bring about the restoration of "the once and future ideal."
