Brava Bellissima! Trio of buxom beauties grace the cover of Vogue Italia

11Jun11

Vogue Italia’s Editor-in-Chief, Frances Sozzani has done it again. By featuring three curvacious beauties on the cover of this month’s issue she continues to challenge and push the industry’s boundaries on its definition of beauty.

This is nothing new for the famously outspoken fashionista. Back in July 2008, Sozzani famously published Vogue’s first Black Issue (inspired by Barack Obama); over 100 pages of stunning editorial shots devoted entirely to all things black, sending a message about the importance of diversity in fashion.

In the groundbreaking June 2011 issue, entitled “Belle Vere” (Real Beauty), three lingerie-clad dusky beauties – Tara Lynn, Candice Huffine and Robyn Lawley – have been shot in homage to 1960’s Italian cinema at the Waldorf Astoria by the masterful Steven Meisel. The images ooze glamour and sensuality, evocative of the dazzling Sophia Loren in her hey day.
Sozzani says ““Why should these women slim down? Many of the women who have a few extra kilos are especially beautiful and also more feminine.”

Sozzani is not only an avid campigner against Pro-Anorexia websites, but has also devoted a section of her own Vogue Italia website to curvy women.

I applaud Vogue Italia, in an age where increasing numbers of women are dealing with body issues in an image conscious society, it is sending out the message that all women are sexy no matter what their size or shape; what matters is happiness; when a woman is happy with herself, she oozes confidence, radiance and exudes an irresisitable sensuality…as we can see from these amazing photos.

So let your beautiful light shine from within and embrace your fabulous self!
