Makeup, fashion, and me.

One picture the world can’t get enough of.

Posted on: September 5, 2009

This picture has been causing a lot of commotion, good and bad. It was a tiny picture in a magazine, yet hundreds wrote in and said they loved it. So what is this picture? I’ll give you a hint, it’s on ‘Glamour’.

This ‘Glamour’ pic has attracted people from all over the world, and the controversy is huge. Thankfully most of it is good, but in some peoples’ eyes this picture is pure evil. And where can you find this famous pic? Right below.

This picture shows 20 year old plus sized model Lizzie Miller. This is the picture that has started a huge discussion on Glamour and lots of comments. The waves this photo made were so big, the editor-in-chief and Lizzie even appeared on the ‘Today’ show to talk about it. The post on Glamour has gotten over 900 comments (isn’t that crazy?) and even more comments are still coming in. I’ll give you a couple of examples:

This woman is self-confident, sexy and classy. She put a smile on my face today. This is what a real woman looks like. She should be on the cover!!

That is one of the most wonderful magazine photos I have ever seen. I was one of the perfect girls in my 20’s. 3 babies later and 20 years later I am far from it. That young women in the photo shows all of us we are beautiful and more importantly, shows the world we are all beautiful. I agree with what she says. If you are comfortable with yourself, others will find you beautiful too……Thank you for showing what a REAL woman looks like to the rest of the world.

But alas not all the comments were nice:

Honestly, when I saw the photo in the magazine, I was turned off. I understand that women want to feel comfortable in their skin – but fitness is important. Larger waistlines equal a greater risk for illness and disease. Romanticising larger builds only contributes to poor health – and its justification. Eat the brownie onece a month, not once a week.

So, what do you think? Let me know in the comments.
