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: June Ambrose Styles Alicia Keys for Gotham; French Vogue Features Solo Black Model


Hey Glamazons!

We loved Alicia Keys in Boxing Kitten on the set of “Put it in a Love Song,” but never has she looked more elegant and refined than on the March cover of Gotham Magazine. Our beloved celebrity stylist, June Ambrose, dressed Ms. Keys in a green Catherine Malandrino dress with plunging neckline and gold jewelry. Stunning! With subtle makeup and her hair pulled back off of her face, Ms. Keys is the picture of radiant beauty. What do you think of Alicia’s new look? 

We’re also proud to hear that French Vogue, the magazine that shot Lara Stone in Blackface, has turned over a new leaf. The cover of their March issue features a solo black model, 18-year-old Rose Cordero. Shot by Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott, Cordero is the first black model to appear on French Vogue alone since Liya Kebede in 2002. Sadly, since Cordero is from the Dominican Republic, many are claiming her features aren’t “black enough,” which I personally feel is ludicrous. Do you agree?

Sidenote: rumor also has it that American Vogue will feature a model on the cover of its April issue. Are we seeing a (much-needed) shift in magazine covers from celebrities back to models (Please, Fashion Gods)? Is that a change you’d like to see? Discuss.

Kisses,
