This cover is atrocious. Oh well.

"'Real women have curves' is a silly argument at best, and insulting to all women at worst. After all, what does 'real women have curves' imply about thin women? They're not 'real' women? They don't have curves? And are curves the only factor that determines womanhood? Note that this phrase keeps the issue firmly in the realm of the physical–the mainstream claim is that women are valuable when they're thin; the 'real women have curves' backlash just turns that message around: 'women are valuable when they have curves.' It's the same superficial, sexist wolf in feminist, pro-fat clothing. http://fatsteria.blogspot.com/2008/0...vely-ugly.html-FATSTERIA

she looks good, but beyonce? overrated. i wish vogue would put someone with actual style on the cover, like chloe sevigny, not someone who is styled.

Anna will never allow anyone who soaked cork on screen to grace the cover of Vogue...

The more I look at it, the more it puts me to sleep.

Well I simply detest Beyonce. Why is she in the cover of Vogue? She's one of the most unstylish celebs in the world.

I didn't much notice the 'real women have curves' line, I thought it was about Beyonce, a typical quote that celebrities use in interviews, claiming they're "real" and "love their curves" when they've got a small army of assistants to help keep their curves real.

this will pretty much never happen. Vogue has a tendency to want to promote either substanceless teen stars with a bit of hype and zero style (or talent) or to promote cultural icons (also with little style, but sometimes armed with a decent stylist).

I think they just like moulding and casting their covergirls into their own image, constantly putting them on the conde nast "best dressed" lists no matter how utterly fug.

Frankly, I don't get the hate for Beyonce. She is over the top in her professional career, but frankly, don't fashion people adore that sort of thing. And she definitely pushes the limit with her fashion, how many other celebs have worn Pugh?

As for the cover, I find it boring. I enjoy seeing her in a really natural, soft setting, but for an issue on shape that talks about curves, there are none! They should show off her famous figure.

My thoughts exactly. Don't they even read the cover headlines before they put it to print

However that is an excellent cover. Vogue has had a great change this year. For fresh cover stars. Finally a change. Now if Bazaar, InStyle and Elle took notice.

well vogue certainly didn't come up with the phrase "real women have curves" it's popular phrase so i suppose they slapped it on the cover to get people's attention. i'm thin and i'm not offended by the phrase. it's just something magazines say to make plus size women think that magazines care about them.

anna obviously thinks thin women are real women since she fills the other 11 issues of the year with them.

That has to be the funniest thing I've read all year. We live in a culture of worship when it comes to the thin figure. Sorry, but it is ten times harder (and it always has been) to be overweight than thin in this world. There are so many hurtful and false stereotypes associated with big women, while thin women are seen as the "ideal" of society. It's nonsense.

You should read the outrage in the letters to the editor of Vogue magazine (or any fashion magazine, frankly) when a bigger than average women is presented in a positive light in the fashion industry. You'd think a mortal sin had been committed.
