Vogue Curvy: Fashion in real sizes?!?



Christinahendricks VOGUE Curvy launched recently with an oversized bang. 

The Italian version of fashion's flagship magazine has created a website devoted to styles for curvy and plus-size women.

The English-language version is sleek and stylish, everything you would expect from Vogue.

In an industry where models could soon snap walking down the runway, it's refreshing to see photos of healthy, stunning women next to bold-faced statements like "when charm is at the top, size doesn't matter."

My only gripe: Since when is 10/12 big?

That's the current size of Florida-born model Crystal Renn, featured in a headliner photo gallery. The site features a number of "curvy icons" with envy-inspiring proportions like Mad Men's Christina Hendricks.

But Vogue Curvy is short on models bigger than Marilyn Monroe.

Is this good enough? Who would you like to see as a plus-sized icon?
