Model versus "plus sized" model

This item might be more appropriate for the Full Frontal Fashion blog, but the blogosphere collectively struggles with body image issues which is sparked by things like this: Terry Richardson photographed models Jacquelyn Jablonski and Crystal Renn, a leading lady among plus size models, wearing the same clothes for V Magazine’s ‘Plus Size’ January 2010 issue. While fashion magazines and editorials can be inspirational in terms of diversifying one’s “look,” can we stop viewing them as measuring sticks of ideal body types? Relatedly, I’m ready for my side-by-side comparison with Daniel Henney, Asian American superstar model-slash-Agent Zero.
