Italian Vogue’s Juicy Plus-Size Model Shoot

Cover of Vogue Italia, June 2011. Photo by Steven Meisel.

Just feast your eyes on this spectacular cover from the June issue of Vogue Italia featuring plus-size models Tara Lynn, Candice Huffine and Robyn Lawley.

The shoot is part of a laudable ongoing effort by Vogue to glamorize beauties with a little meat on their bones, a campaign that began in February with the launch of the site Vogue Curvy.

Bellissima!

More (including video) after the jump:

The lingerie featured is absolutely gorgeous. What is truly surprising, however,  is that alongside pieces of expensive couture, the June photospread also included many pieces of beautiful yet affordable lingerie, including this corset and this exquisite satin and lace bustier from Hips and Curves.

So, what do you think? Is fashion moving in the right direction, or do you prefer a slimmer sleeker look? Something in-between, perhaps?
