I find it interesting how tempting it is to use "edible" adjectives to describe plussize models. Ive seen them called "luscious" and "yummy" and "juicy", and the whole "Dessert Beauty" campaign is entirely based on edible adjectives.

So I could hardly believe it when I read that the famous Madame Tussauds wax museum in London had created a chocolate sculpture of Jennifer Lopez -

"JENNIFER LOPEZ has just become a little sweeter - she's been immortalised as a chocolate statue.

"Confectionary giant CADBURY and MADAME TUSSAUDS have teamed up to create an edible likeness of the singer and actress.

"The chocolate sculpting was introduced last week at Madame Tussauds Wax Museum in London."


I know JLo isnt actually full figured, but at least she helped shift pop culture *slightly* towards appreciating curves. The recent stories about the voluptuous mannequins that fashion retailers are starting to use invoked her as one of their influences.

Ill try to post a pic, but if it doesnt show, try the link below.

I love this, because it is probably the worst nightmare any diet promoter could ever face! And it ties "sexy girls" in with "dessert" again - which is all so forbidden in todays culture.
