So awesome! <3
Let’s keep it real.
The recent surge in the adoration of curves has brought forth millions upon millions of images on tumblr, facebook, pinterest and hundreds of other websites to “represent” the rubenesque female form. While I fully support this movement in it’s body-positive direction I have become a little disheartened with the fact that there are people out there who are taking liberty to over-emphasize the curves and proportion of the women in these images.
While I understand that the beauty and fashion industries go to disgusting lengths to portray their ideal versions of beauty by clipping & trimming and erasing and air-brushing away any minute blemishes or imperfections, it is my opinion that the above portrayal (on the right) of Lucy Colett is a misrepresentation of what the curvy movement stands for.
Taking it from the extreme of making women appear thinner or taller to the next extreme of making them appear curvier or more voluptuous in my opinion, is not the answer. I feel that this type of manipulation just feeds directly back into the unrealistic ideal of beauty that the fashion industry & media have been cramming down our throats for years.
And lets face it, Lucy Collet (as capture by Gareth Davies) has bodacious curves in the original image.
When we stand FOR something, we should be aware of how we’re representing the cause. :) <3
