• CURVES AHEAD by V MAGAZINE

    The upcoming issue of V magazine, on newsstands Jan. 14, features a bevy of beauties boasting Botticelli-esque bodies, flaunting their figures in everything from cut-out Gucci bathing suits to bottom hugging Guess jeans to nothing but red lipstick, gold jewels and a pair of heels.

    While V's "Size Issue" is nothing new in concept -- Vogue's been putting out its annual nod to non-size-zeros for years -- in execution, the magazine breaks form. Five plus-size models star in its "Curves Ahead" spread.

    "Curves Ahead" shows that a woman need not be a size 2 to rock fashion as daring as a leopard print bodysuit.

    One photo from the spread features models Tara Lynn and Candice Huffine embracing each other, sans tops, while staring seductively at the camera. It takes a moment to realize -- probably because Huffine's hand is tucked into Lynn's back pocket -- that they're modeling designer jeans.

    V magazine doesn't hesitate to put full-figured models in cut-out swimsuits and form-fitting clothing.

    For a long time, it seemed the fashion industry didn't understand that a size-0 body was the only shape a model could have. Now, with V and like-minded publications embracing the range of shapes and size, maybe the message is finally hitting home.
