Re: Seventeen: Timeless beauty, today
Both models are very pretty. It's great to see a mainstream magazine using genuinely plus-looking girls, and presenting them in a positive way.
Junior plus has always been severely under-represented by the fashion industry- even by plus-oriented publications, which never made any sense at all. Great as Mode was, its short-lived junior spinoff, Girl magazine, was a major disappointment, because it tried to represent "all" sizes (which resulted in just one or two token plus-size models appearing per issue, and those were usually the faux-plus types). These lovely images from Seventeen show what that magazine could have been, if only it had truly dedicated itself to plus-size teens.
At least Torrid, with stars like Christina and Kelsey, is finally representing this demographic.
