I want to see real women in advertisements. I want to see diversity and bodies that have fought, conquered and embraced life. We still live in a society where seeing real images of women is shocking. We need more images of real beauty. We need these images because we are still fighting to feel good in our own skin.
It’s the photo that sparked hundreds of letters. Is this photo Lizzie Miller going to change the face of the modeling industry? The picture above of 20-year-old Lizzie Miller graced page 194 of the September 2009 Glamour magazine. Miller is a size 12-14 and heard from agencies that she was too big to be a plus size model. In the modeling industry, size 8-10 is the “plus size” range, which is crazy when you consider that Miller is an average (or even slightly below-average) sized woman.
