FFF Diva Media Moment: "Plus-size 'Glamour' Models Bringing Their Inspiration to Magazine's First Calendar"

The Glamour plus-sized-model phenomenon continues to pay dividends for the magazine. The Condé Nast title caused a sensation when it featured twophotos of plus-sized models in recent issues (see aboe and below). Now, editor Cindi Leive has used the group photo above in the magazine's first calendar. The "Inspiration" calendar is being bundled with a subscription offer on It's not quite Calendar Girls, the calendar featuring nude British ladies and strategically placed flowerpots and teacups that inspired a 2003 movie by the same name. But it's nonetheless a reminder that beauty comes in all shapes and sizes.

  1. My only complaint is that what they call plus sized is not exactly what "real" plus sized woman look like. It's still nice to see normal healthy looking woman. A giant step in the right direction.
