Yesterday, I was reading my Sunday Age newspaper and in the Sunday Life magazine there was an article titled Shape Shifting, which was all about how curves are back in fashion – do you think this is true or not?
Will the Rachel Zoe skinny waif look ever go out of style? Every time that someone like Jessica Simpson puts on a couple of kilograms (about 4.4 pounds in imperial), she gets sledged by the media.
But there has been lots of support for Christina Hendricks of Mad Men fame, and in recent years I’ve noticed a few more ‘normal’ women on TV who are also framed as ‘sexy’ – such as Dr Callie Torres (Sara Ramirez) on Grey’s Anatomy.
Do you think there is a return of curves (think Marilyn Monroe and those gorgeous women of her generation) for real? Will high street fashion retailers actually start making clothes for all the average women out there instead of stopping a few sizes too small?
