Curvy Victoria's Secret Models Finally Welcome in Paris, Milan Fashion Weeks
So long, stick-thin models!
Although runways across the nation have been featuring curvier women for some time, this month's Fashion Weeks in Paris and Milan have finally welcomed models diverse in size and age.
"Designers are always talking about how they design for women, and then you look at our runways and there no girls over 20," Marc Jacobs told reporters backstage at his Louis Vuitton show in Paris on Wednesday. "This time, I set out to cast a variety of sexy women -- younger, older, thin, voluptuous, from every ethnic background."
Formerly seen as a fashion show faux pas, his lineup included Victoria's Secret models Adriana Lima -- who appeared on the runway for the first time since giving birth to her daughter in November -- and Alessandra Ambrosio, both 28. (Even 46-year-old Elle Macpherson strutted her stuff at the show.)
Fellow Victoria's Secret Angel Miranda Kerr, 26, walked the runway last month in Milan for Prada's fall show, which also put a new emphasis on curvy figures.
