Saturday Vids: Glamour Magazine and The Girl on Page 194
Over a year ago, Glamour Magazine printed a photo of model Lizzi Miller (known to many as the “girl on page 194″). Despite the fact that she is a “plus size” model, which seems to be something magazines don’t think the general public wants to see, the reaction was overwhelmingly positive.
Glamour then followed up with a group shot of plus-sized models, promising to continue to include more images of plus-sized models in their magazines. Here’s an interview Ellen DeGeneres did with the models last year:
I guess the point of bringing this up again is that I hope this wasn’t just a passing fad or media stunt. I want to remind everybody that this happened. In all honesty, I haven’t picked up a Glamour Magazine in a while and I’m wondering: has anybody noticed that Glamour made good on their promise? Do they employ plus sized models? Has anybody seen mainstream magazines that do?
