Skinny Models vs. Curvy Models

When Is Skinny Too Skinny?

The debate over the size of today's fashion models has simmered for years, and while the fashion industry has taken steps to embrace the fuller-figure — Vogue Italia's June issue featuring a plus-size model cover should be noted — the majority of models are still skinny. Really skinny. This wasn't always the case; in the days of Cindy Crawford and Naomi Campbell, women were fuller, and a curvier figure was de rigueur. Contrast that with today's standard, which leans more towards waif, like 5'11 Polish model Kasia Wrobel, who most recently walked in the Calvin Klein Resort 2012 show in a drapey silk dress. Part of the trend stems from younger teen models who haven't yet finished growing. Do you like today's standards for thin models, or do you think fashion should take serious steps to encourage a fuller-figure?
