Curves Ahead

The other day I got stuck in a queue next to a newsstand featuring J-Hawk’s cover for Marie Claire, and at the risk of jumping on the bandwagon, here’s my two bobs worth – this cover and the concept behind it offends me. Who are they try to kid? How can this image of a super model/super-stunning-freak-of-nature baring all possibly be a ‘celebration of the female body in all its beauty and magnificance’? If this is as real as we can get, then we’ve got a long way to go.

If Marie Claire wants a lesson in how to genuinely embrace real women looking…well, real…they should take a leaf out of V Magazine. Their recent Curves Ahead editorial is the bomb(shell)!
