Although Anna Wintour herself wears a size zero, this style guru and fashion legend, sings the praises of Grammy winner Adele’s plus size fashion sense. With Wintour’s stamp of approval, will full figured women now be “en” Vogue? Why can’t a larger woman be allowed to dress fashionably, or even sexy? In recent years, plus size models, fashion shows, and catalogues have begun to appear, and each time, the fashion media makes a fuss.
OneStopPlus.com, the world’s first and only plus size webmall, has long recognized the plus size women’s desire for fashionable clothes.
With over 20+ years of experience in the fashion and publishing industries, Nancy LeWinter, a plus-size fashion expert from OneStopPlus.com, can offer insight on how Wintour’s plus size praise will affect the overall industry and women’s perspectives on size.
“62% of all American women (18 or older) wear a size 12+, and yet the plus size market is still overlooked,” says LeWinter. “Fashion is fashion no matter what your size. The secret to looking great at any size is to play up what you like about your body and to balance your clothing. Having worked at Vogue for years, it’s great to see their new found respect for women of style no matter what their sizes. The plus size market is finally receiving the recognition it deserves. “
