Re: Shannon Marie in Seventeen
She really is incredibly beautiful - like a dream-vision, truly. I definitely prefer the images from later in her career, when she was a true plus-size model (and even more goreous), but even here, Shannon's loveliness is undeniable.
Belated kudos to Seventeen magazine for this extraordinary editorial, and for choosing the best model they could have possibly selected. When they cast Shannon, they must have known that here was one model who would show anyone how beautiful plus-size girls can be.
But what a shame that it was such a singular feature, and that today, a decade later, it's still practically unheard-of to see a full-figure layout in Seventeen, or in other teen magazines. They should have made a plus-size layout a monthly feature. But Seventeen's loss was MODE's win, where Shannon Marie's beauty became famous.
