Meet Diana Sirokai the Plus Size Model who re-creates famous shoots of stars like Kim Kardashian to prove that curves rock too

“Diana did it again!” That was my first thought when I saw the recent shoot she had with Photo Karizza. Diana Sirokai is known for re-creating famous shoots to show that they would also look well with a plus size model. This time they choosed […]

SHOULD VICTORIA’S SECRET HIRE CURVY MODELS NEXT YEAR?

SHOULD VICTORIA’S SECRET HIRE CURVY MODELS NEXT YEAR?

Kendall Jenner for VS

 

Tonight was the Night! The Victoria’s Secret show was held at the Grand Palais in Paris tonight! The most wanted top models were gracing the catwalk at tonight’s show, including the celebrity supermodel Kendall Jenner and Gigi + Bella Hadid.

THE SHOW WAS AGAIN ONE OF THE BEST SHOWS IN THE WORLD, BUT I COULDN’T CARE TO WATCH IT AT ALL!!!!

The reason for this is not because the models aren’t amazing, and not because they are too thin, it is because a brand is just doing a presentation showing their products only on smaller sizes. I know that VS has bodies in XL, because some plus size models already wore their lingerie for shootings. Furthermore, in this case I do not accept the stupid excuse that they only chose thinner models to save money on the materials. The models are wearing cheap lingerie, except for the super-expensive bra they are presenting at the end. Let’s face it, they don’t want to use curvy models because many viewers out there would still consider them as ‘fat’ or ‘obese’. These comments and flimsy excuses are ridiculous!

WHICH IS WHY WE WANTED TO ASK YOU IF YOU WANT VICTORIA’S SECRET TO ALSO CAST SOME CURVY MODELS NEXT YEAR????

To simplify the descisions, we already chose some models for you. We have put them next to known VS models to let you see that there are no differences, except for their sizes. This is not a comparison, and we don’t want you to disparage the other models. All sizes are beautiful for us and it should be for you too.

Tell us what you think, should VS hire curvy models?

REACTIONS TO THE LATEST SHOW

Twitter:

‘I don’t really like that Victoria’s Secret models are all skinny with no curves. That’s not what the average body looks like.’

‘I want a girl with an actual booty to model Victoria’s Secret panties. Too much to ask?’

‘But why are all the Victoria’s Secret models flat chested? I mean you’re selling bras.’

‘Victoria’s Secret models literally have nothing on Ashley Graham or Iskra like are you kidding me?’ 

Daily Mail:

‘Twenty years ago, supermodel Karen Mulder sashayed down a makeshift catwalk at the Plaza Hotel in New York wearing just a pretty white babydoll nightie, all honeyed limbs and glorious blonde hair.

This was a very early Victoria’s Secret lingerie show, which sent shock waves through the industry for its risqué ensembles and generous helpings of glamorous, golden flesh.

The American lingerie brand, then in its infancy, had struck upon a potent formula: send beautiful women down a catwalk in their undies and you’ll attract attention.

Nowadays these are the kinds of outfits the models wear just to travel to the shows; the stuff they actually wear on the catwalk is so revealing you can practically glimpse their internal organs.

There’s something else striking about the pictures from 20 years ago, too. The girls have curves. Not excessive ones, of course —this is still a catwalk, they’re all slim as pins. But they don’t look like they’ve been surviving on nothing but chamomile colonics and tissue paper for the previous three weeks, like the current lot.’

THEN vs NOW

I think the only model who rocked her curves in a wonderful way was Irina Shayk, but that could also be because she is pregnant!

I hope to see a change soon for VS, because it is finally time for you to also listen to your consumers on social media. Sorry Victoria’s Secret if I was ill-mannered, but I really think you should change things within your marketing because you will lose the popularity in the future!

Kind regards,

Herbsttrends Teil 1 – Langer Mantel

Herbsttrends Teil 1 – Langer Mantel

This is a “GERMAN ONLY” post. This means the main text is in German, but we include shopping links if you are from other countries below.

Ich schaue mir ja immer gern online an was so die Models und Stars derzeit tragen, denn ich weiß das sie immer die neuesten Trends zeigen. Das liegt meist daran das die Firmen ihnen ihre Kleidung zusenden. Und je mehr Follower das Model hat, umso angesagter ist alles was sie trägt. Und so passierte es das ich in letzter Zeit oft Stars mit langen Mänteln in ihren Bildern gesehen hab. Ich habe gleich erkannt das dies der neue Trend in diesem Herbst/Winter sein muss.

Hier gibt es eine kleine Gallerie zu dem Trend für 2015/2016:

Wie ihr sehen könnt tragen nicht nur die Stars lange Mäntel, aber auch die Topmodels und Fashionistas. Und da fängt für mich der Trend an. Kim Kardashian trägt ja seit Jahren immer nur lange Mäntel, vor allem jetzt während der Schwangerschaft. Aber wenn Karlie Kloss und verschiedene Bloggerinnnen auch sowas tragen, dann ist das ein sicherer Trend.

Nach langer Suche habe ich auf Alba Moda endlich etwas gefunden das mir gefiehl. Es gibt auf der Seite mehrere länge Mäntel in verschiedenen Farben. Ich habe aber im Bild unten nur den Kurzmantel eingefügt, weil ich mir diesen auch bestellt habe. Ich steh ja derzeit total auf den Nude Look. Daher habe ich mir nun dieses Outfit zusammengestellt:

weißes deckblatt

Ich musste 2 Schuhe bestellen. Man will ja doch eine Auswahl haben und ich probiere eh immer gerne mehrere Paare aus. Ich musste mich sogar zurückhalten nicht noch mehr zu bestellen. 😀

Ich bin echt sehr gespannt darauf wie das mir stehen wird. Und vor allem wie ich es schminken soll wenn ich es für mein nächstes Date mit meinem Freund tragen werde in Paris. Ich weiß nur das ich auf jeden Fall wieder meine roten Lippen haben will. Ich bin da so eher für diesen Look:

Ich war überrascht auf der Seite noch Kleidung zu finden in meiner Größe 48/50, aber es gibt auf der Seite auch Größere Größen. Und auch wenn der Preis teurer ist, so ist doch die Qualität eine viel bessere als bei anderen.

Dies war der 1. Teil einer “Herbsttrend” Serie die ich teilen möchte. Seid gespannt auf meinen nächsten Post und die Links die ich gefunden habe.

AUTUMN TREND PART 1 – LONG COATS

This is the first trend post that I am excited to write about. Ever since  saw Karlie Kloss in this picture wearing a long coat, I knew this is the new fashion trend. Then I found more info about this online with bloggers who wore this style also.

Long coats are fashionable since Kim Kardashion wears them all the time and get’s shared with her look everywhere. I might also not like everything about her and her family, but I have to admit that her style is great. That might be, because Kanye created her style and I love everything that he creates.

HERE ARE SOME COATS THAT I FOUND FOR YOU ON MY SEARCH:

Asos, Nordstrom and Simply Be UK

Update: After checking Forever 21 again I saw the khaki coat worn by Denise Bidot.
