|Speaking of trying to restore curve-friendly femininity to fashion, I just stumbled upon an interesting webpage by a University of Alabama student. It discusses the Judgment of Paris myth, along with several historical and modern interpretations of that myth -- and it lists this very site among them, along with a picture of Christina Schmidt, and the following description --|
"The Judgment of Paris is a website devoted to plus size models and plus size fashion. Much like the task that was placed before Paris himself, the website attempts to define beauty. According to it, plus size models are the embodiment of femininity, which has escaped fashion in recent years. Instead of being made to favor women's curves, clothing simply imitates masculine styles that flatter straight-line bodies. The website calls attention to the beauty of feminine curves that has gone unnoticed by the fashion elite."
I would call that a pretty reasonable precis. The link between the restoration of femininity and curvaceousness is very important.
