the Woman on p. 194

An un-airbrushed photo of a plus-size model appeared in the September issue of the US glossy magazine Glamour. The idea behind was to illustrate a story on feeling comfortable in your skin. Soon, readers flooded the magazine’s website with comments like: ‘I love the woman on p. 194!’ This woman is Lizzie Miller, a 20-year-old model. Her size is 12-14, and that makes her representative to the most women in America. There are by now hundreds comments and the debate on the real body image is similar to that generated by Dove with ‘Real beauty’ campaign. This huge buzz generated by a small photo makes the magazine to plan an entire edition dedicated to the improved body image issue.
