Is the fashion world really ready for Plus Size models?

I finally picked the upcoming issue of the November Elle and lets just say for me Elle magazine never disappoints, unlike another certain popular overrated magazine that shall not be named. Elle always shows you how to can rock the latest trends but without forgetting the basics and keeping an outfit chic and simple.

The main topic of this months issue is plus size! And it includes tips like how one can become a plus size model and includes articles that ask various people in the fashion industry about their opinion on the topic and ya so it goes on... and on... and on...

 The industry may be a buzz about the whole plus size model topic from time to time however fact remains plus size models will never be fully embraced for example please look at the highest paid and most powerful supermodels in the world such as Giselle Bunchen, Adrianna Lima, Noami Crawford and Candice Swanepoel. Without me having to display a picture along with the name, one knows exactly whom I am talking. However...

Crytal Renn 

This model I bet that most of you do not have a clue who she is but Ms Renn has been in the game for a over 10 years and has been some of the top designers muse such as Karl Lagerfield, however barely can put a face to the name.

Whitney Thompson

The winner of America's Next Top Model Cycle 10 was the first plus size model to win the title however,where is she now?

Tara Lynn
This young beautiful lady has been in the game for some time now and I often see her in a few fashion magazines here and there but hardly any fashion shows-like most plus size models.

Now they they say that a models careers often lasts for about five years and some even more but that's often rare, for a plus size models career even last for a full season? I think not, the world is not and will never be ready for plus size models. Never.
