Their sentiment is a good one, even if the title of Glamour magazine’s lead pictorial for their June 2010 issue is a little too far sweeping: Every Body Is A Hot Body. Featuring poster-girl for the ‘curvy movement’, model Crystal Renn, the pictorial draws contrast between body shapes by placing Renn alongside Alessandra Ambrosio and Brooklyn Decker. While Glamour succeeds in the contrast (Photoshop appears to have helped the cause) the question still remains as to whether the focus on curvy as sexy is part of a larger society trend, or merely clever marketing. Call me jaded, but I suspect the latter.
