V magazine's size issue hits newsstands January 14. One very well done and interesting spread pits a plus-size model against a skinny one to show that size zero girls aren't the only models who look good in designer clothes. While that editorial is largely about clothes, another spread features plus-size models exclusively, wearing nothing to next to nothing. All too often, when magazines introduce plus-size ladies to their pages, they are naked. Love put Beth Ditto on the cover nude, and Glamour followed its sensational nude photo of Lizzie Miller with a shoot of a nude semi-orgy of plus-size models. The message is confusing. Is it really that women of average-to-larger sizes are beautiful? Or that not only are these magazines bold enough to feature larger girls, they're also bold enough to feature them nude? It would be nice if fashion magazines could find a happy medium and subject models of all sizes to equal degrees of nudity ... but models of truly all sizes — not just blatantly underweight or overweight girls. See the spread in the slideshow.BEGIN SLIDESHOW
