Yes :::: Curves are the new black

Throughout history the ideal body shape changes with the time. 100 years ago people were wearing corsets, the 20's were all about the 'flapper' more boyish figure, 50's is about bust & 60's back to thin. The 80's is when the Amazonian Goddesses arrived, the prime athletic, muscles & strength defined supermodels, and in the 90's the ideal returned back to coathangers & waifs.

So where does it go from here?

This post isn't about hating on the skinny people - I Love Rachel Zoe, Alexa Chung, and loads of models at the moment. I'ts celebrating the fact that there is diversity in this decade & hopefully the consumers of this moment can relate to a wider range of people.

Here are some gorgeous curvy celebs:

Crystal Renn leads the way with her own book about what it was like to struggle with anorexia. She has had incredible success as a plus size model, and has even worked with Karl Lagerfeld, who in the past stated that 'no one wants to look at fat people'. WOW

With a spread in UK VOGUE Adele made it known that curvy girls are back with a bang

Lara Stone continues to be no.1 Model on Models.com ranking and is none other than the Iconic sexy model of our decade. With those long, lean legs and a huge bust she said she found it difficult to break in to the industry as she was considered 'too big'. Well now she rules supreme and these are her latest shots for VOGUE China.

One of my favourites is Kate. She exudes charm and confidence, and most of her co-stars say they can't believe how comfortable she is with her body! That's our girl.
