Photo of the day

Going a little more risque than usual, but I was pretty intrigued by this photo gallery and story about a plus-size model (though, only in the fashion world is size 12 really all that large) who undertook a photo shoot to demonstrates just how absurdly skinny a “normal” model is:

Plus Model Magazine

Personally, it seem obvious to me that the “plus-size” model is way healthier and thus way more attractive than the run-way model on the left who looks as if she hasn’t eaten for a month.  I don’t think there’s really a lot new to say on this subject, but I do think the visual juxtaposition makes the point in a new and intriguing way.
