After V Magazine’s Size Issue, here comes another “pro diversity” message (or so they say): Love Magazine put 8 naked supermodels on their covers and posted their measurements with the purpose of showing how different these “ideal bodies” really are.
“For this issue of LOVE, we took eight women who are generally acknowledged as the most beautiful in the world, got them to show off their bodies – widely regarded as the most perfect in the world – and photographed them all in exactly the same position for the cover,” LOVE’s editor-in-chief Katie Grand told VOGUE.COM. “We did this to show how much they differed physically from one another, which is why we also printed their measurements.”
“The point is that ‘perfection’ is not fixed, timeless or transcendent,” Grand – who put Beth Ditto on the cover of the first ever issue of LOVE – explained. “It varies, as the measurements of our cover girls show.”
Are you getting the “perfection isn’t fixed” concept of this shoot? I mean, they all look super good, but they’re basically all tall, thin, supermodels… and even though the magazine tries to convince us “how much they differ physically from one another” , these girls are still all part of 1 tiny group: the tall, thin, almost-identical-measurements supermodel group.
Well, nothing screams “Different!” more than a group of 8 models, 5 with 34” hips and 3 with 35” hips’.
