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?
