Prada Says Butts, Boobs and Hips are In for Fall

Forget Prada’s sexy librarian trend. What’s really hot this season are breasts, hips and butts…on the runway.


While high fashion has all but ignored a woman’s natural curves, opting for the real-life mannequin look, Miuccia Prada has fully embraced our humps in her latest show—and it’s about time.


Don’t get excited. We’re not talking about curves of the Brick House, 36-24-38 kind (sorry, Melissa Ford). But models like Lara Stone, Doutzen Kroes, Catherine McNeil, Miranda Kerr and Alessandra Ambrosio, and their relative hip, breast and derriere fat, are still a breath of fresh air on the catwalk. Rose Cordero, who covers the new issue of French Vogue, brought some much-needed color to the runway.


The collection, it seems, was structured for a voluptuous woman as well. The A-line skirts and dresses are perfect for women with hips and butt. The raised waists only further highlighted womanly, hourglass silhouettes. 


And the breasts. Ruffles and pointy bras enhance the chest area. While models everywhere are cringing, real women are ecstatic about what this means for the future of fashion. Miuccia Prada is a trendsetter and if all goes well, it’s only a matter of time before more fashion brands follow suit. Check out the collection below:






































Either Miuccia Prada has been hanging out with Beyonce, or the curves phenomenon (seen previously in the V Magazine Size Issue and Vogue Curvy) is really in full swing.


Regardless, I’m happy to see that a little bit of fat is in fashion. (I’m looking proudly at my shape in the mirror as I type this.)


What do you think of Prada putting curves on the runway? Do you think the “trend” will endure?

Magazine Glam: Rihanna for W Magazine, Precious star Gabourey Sidibe for V Magazine’s Size Issue


Hey Glamazons!

I’m addicted to huge fashion glossies, among other things. So I’m thrilled to share with you the latest covers of two of my favorite mags, W Magazine and V Magazine.
As much as I love Rihanna, I have to start with V Magazine’s Size Issue. With all the buzz surrounding January’s V Magazine—and those incredible spreads, the cover has to be just as special, right? Right. With double covers featuring “Precious” star, Gabourey Sidibe (that movie was so touching) and Dakota Fanning (looking very Twiggy-like), the V Magazine editors have successfully relayed the message that every size is beautiful.
I especially love Gabourey’s cover. I’ve never seen her look more gorgeous and glamorous. It really goes to show that beauty has no size limit.

And now for Rihanna, her February 2010 W Magazine cover and spread, shot by Craig McDean and styled by Lori Goldstein, is to-die-for!!! Seriously, the leopard-print Lola hat almost knocked me out cold when I saw the photo on my blackberry.
Wearing Gucci, Prada and Michael Kors in clean black and white shots, Rihanna solidifies her place as a high-fashion favorite. In python coats, leopard print hats and studded fingerless half-gloves, Rihanna continues to venture into bad-girl territory with her fusion of glamor, grit and goth.
I wonder if Anna Wintour feels she missed the boat by allegedly denying Rihanna the American Vogue cover after her nude photos hit the web. Oh well, looking hot is the best revenge, indeed!
