“Let Them Not Eat Cake”

Jan 9, 2010Fashion

Karl Lagerfield woud not know what to do with this.

V is For Victory for Voluminously, Voluptuous Women. To be clear, V Magazine is doing a whole issue with plus-sized models. This is a major statement for the normally anorexic audience that reads most uber-fabulous glossies. Didn’t they all start the trend in vomiting and other such lovely feats of strength to look thin and gorgeous. As a past fatty, I am glad that V is willing to dedicate this much attention and resources to acknowledge this audience. I just wonder if it will be the token fat issue and never again will we see an a bulge…except in V Man. V is For Victory for Voluminously, Voluptuous Women.

The newly skinny Karl Lagerfeld has been known to say unloving things about over sized women. He surely does not want to design for them. At the Fendi show, he talked about how women, in order to pull off the new lingerie as outerwear look, need to eat healthy, and not eat sweets. As the queen of the fashion industry, that statement could be compared to Marie Antoinette famous line, but revised here, “Let them not eat cake”.
