Designers were starting to replace pin-thin models with curvier ladies and we loved it! But top insiders at a high-powered NYC modeling agency are saying that at this year’s fashion week you’ll notice a change — and not a good one.
Say goodbye to healthy curves and hello to itty-bitty runway models! This year’s 2010 Fall Fashion Week kicked off in NYC Sept. 9 and according to our sources, you’ll be noticing some major changes. HollywoodLife.com spoke to an industry insider who reveals that if you thought your favorite designers were over uber-skinny models — think again.
“For the past six months we’ve been enjoying womanly bodies,” says our source. “But everything is cyclical and the trend is heading back in the other direction. People are tired of seeing those images [of heavier models] and we’re seeing a lot of designers revolt from it.”
Instead of seeing some fresh faces or well-known curvy models like Crystal Renn and Lizzie Miller, our insider says you’ll be seeing the typical famous faces of skinny: Ana Claudia, Carmen Dell’Orefice, Rose Codero, Alana Zimmer and Ming Xi.
But all hope is not lost: the Kardashian girls are launching their new clothing and accessories line on QVC, Sept. 10 — and the line is specifically for curvy women! Kim, Khloe and Kourtney are known for embracing their curves and being “real” role models for the millions of young girls who look up to them.
We did get a chance to speak to Roman Young, the Director of New Faces at NYC’s Wilhelmina Modeling Agency, and he says it won’t always be this way.
“Skinny isn’t the end all be all requirement for models this season.” he says. “You will see a vast variety this season.”
BFFs, are you upset to hear that the positive trend of featuring curvy women is reverting back to the old skinny ways?
