|That doll is absolutely gorgeous. I wish more plussize models actually resembled her.|
When I read this post, I started thinking about where I had recently seen an image a lot like this Body Shop ad, and then I remembered it - the Ivana ad for JMS that is in all the magazines now, and that HSG posted on this forum recently.
Ivana is looking at the camera instead of away, but still, the pose and even the figures are somewhat similar.
I adore JMS for allowing her to show off her curvy waist, and the whole series is very inspiring. It is SUCH a joy to see true plussize modelS, and when this particular ad gets printed in a magazine, it always shows up as a two-page spread - like a subversive centrefold, almost.
I just wish the Just My Size catalogs used models that were genuinely full-figured, like we see in this ad campaign, instead of the faux-plus models they are currently using.
