It's about time male plus-size models get some attention!
Zach Miko is Target's only plus-size male model, and he's doing a great job of representing his body type!
The model, who is also an actor and has appeared on Wolf of Wall Street, is happy to be bringing forth a change in male representation:
"I never understood why looking at big and tall clothing, they show me these Abercrombie & Fitch-style, really cut, really fit guys. These guys aren't buying XXL tall T-shirts, these guys aren't buying 42-inch pants, but they're the guys you see modeling it.
With everything that's been going on with women's fashion and body inclusivity and self-image, it's interesting that male brands have [just started] stepping up to do the same thing. It's fun to be on the precipice of that."
And it's long overdue!
Zach's point was further proven the first time he got a modeling gig, when his size wasn't available:
Three cheers for body diversity!
People are applauding Target for featuring a variety of body types in its latest ad campaign for bikinis and bathing suits!
The popular retailer's newest campaign, called "Target Loves Every Body," showcases shapes that move beyond the standard very thin and very tall supermodel look.
Just check out the photos for evidence!
Models (left to right) Zanna Roberts Rassi, Nashelly Messina, Nikki Minton, Sarah Boyd, and Chanté Burkett are far more representative of women in the world than you'd typically find on fashion runways.
The best part is they all look beautiful in their swimwear, which goes to show that only using one body type to advertise your wares doesn't have to be the only approach.
Good job, Target!

Halle Berry sure loves her lingerie!
She recently partnered with Scandale Paris to launch her new collection, which is exclusively available at Target.
The actress says she's personally invested in this project, since her unmentionables are something she's literally never been without:
Kate Bosworth, Bella Thorne, and Emmy Rossum didn't shy from bold prints and hues at Lilly Pulitzer's Target launch in NYC on Wednesday!
And decked out in the new collection, the trio were the epitome of spring.

Kate hit the red carpet in a pale green and yellow shift, which she styled with simple black flats and a boxy Mark Cross bag.
The dress looks stellar, but her accessories were way off base!
To celebrate the film Annie (currently in theaters), Target simultaneously launched an Annie for Target girls clothing line.
The clothes themselves are cute enough, but the ads for the collection have sparked controversy among some consumers for mainly depicting white models.
A Change.org (see it HERE) petition has been started by L'Sean Rinique urging Target to remedy this by including more African-American models in the ads and issuing an apology to the film's star Quvenzhané Wallis, and has already garnered several hundred signatures from supporters.
The petition in part states:
Lingerie lines are the new fragrance deals!
Halle Berry is following in Britney Spears' footsteps and launching her own lingerie collection. Or, more accurately, she's bringing a popular French lingerie brand called Scandale to the States!
Apparently, the actress spotted the brand while living in Paris with her husband Olivier Martinez, and decided that it would be great for women in the US as well!
