Comparing Plus Size and Sample Size — Love It or Leave It?

V Magazine's upcoming issue sets out to prove that fashion can flatter any figure. The magazine attempts this by pitting a "plus-sized" model and a sample-sized model against each other, even offering each model's measurements — Jacquelyn comes in at 5'9'' 32/24/34 and Crystal at 5'9'' 36/31/41. The women are shot wearing the same fabulous frocks and it's hard to argue that they both don't look fierce. But do you think these images empower women of all sizes or does the issue come off as an unhealthy, gimmicky competition?
