Garance Dore Comments on Plus-Size Models

Do You Agree With Garance Doré: Plus-Size Models = Not Such a Good Thing?

Street style photographer Garance Doré has a thing or two to say about plus-size models. "It's not such a good thing to show plus-size because it's not really physically healthy and not always flattering to fashion," she said. V Magazine begs to differ. But before you get offended, she has more to say: "It should not be such a big deal to show women with different bodies, but sometimes it's treated like a bit of joke, or for shock." Exhibit A: the plus-size models on the Mark Fast Fall runway. She thinks it's naive of the fashion industry because, although it would be nice to say that the idea of different body shapes is normal, she believes it's not yet. Does Garance have a point or is she just being insensitive?
