More Support Comes For Banning The Term "Plus-Size" — Do You Think It Should Go Too?

Filed under: AustraliasticModelsTyra BanksFashion Week

Model Robyn Lawley wants to ban the term

Robyn Lawley is a gorgeous size 12 model.

In the fashion industry, she’s considered “plus-size”.

But considering that the average size of an American woman is a size 14, “plus-size” is a bit of a misnomer, no??

Robyn certainly thinks so, and similarly to Tyra Banks, she argues that the term “plus-size” should be completely banned in the fashion industry!!

During Milan Fashion Week, the beautiful Australian voiced her thoughts on the matter, saying:

David's Bridal Investing In Realistic Mannequins! Getting Thicker Waists & More Realistic Breasts!

Get the scoop on David's Bridal\'s new realistic wedding dress mannequins!

Not only have too-perfect models come under scrutiny in the fashion industry of late — so have mannequins!!

Thankfully they can’t be offended because they’re not alive!!! Or are they!? Creepy!

Anyway. Last year a lingerie shop in Sweden embraced plus-size mannequins, which were an instant hit! This year American Apparel went for merkined mannequins, which were NOT as much of a hit!

And now David’s Bridal, the largest bridal chain in the U.S., is doing what Sweden did for future brides-to-be.

The goal is to make shopping for your big day a whole new experience, as David’s Bridal VP Michele Von Plato explained:

Target Uses Maternity Model For Plus-Size Dress! Thinks Maternity Wear & Plus-Size Is The Same!?

Filed under: Oops!Fashion SmashionSad SadTargetGIFs

Target is feeling the heat once again for using a maternity model for their plus size apparel!

Target just can't seem to get the whole plus-size thing right!

A while back, they came under fire for calling a gray plus-size dress Manatee Gray, while their equivalent standard size dress was Dark Heather Gray. See their apology HERE!

Guess they didn't learn their lesson, because now they're apparently using a maternity model for plus-size wear!?

It would appear so!

On Target's website, they're selling a "Merona Women's Plus-Size Short-Sleeve V-Neck Maxi Dress" modeled by what is obviously a maternity model. She even has a hand over her baby bump as if she's sending loving vibes to the embryo within!

Did they just skimp and not hire a plus-size model? Was it just a simple mix-up? We don't know, but we DO know it looks pretty bad for Target!

See their awkward blunder …AFTER THE JUMP!!!

NeNe Leakes Is Launching Her Own Clothing Line! Get The "Curvy Girl" Deets HERE!

Real Housewives of Atlanta star NeNe Leakes is launching her own clothing line, and she wants YOU to be a part of it!

This is an inneresting development!!

Even though she used to make fun of fellow Real Housewives of Atlanta star Sheree Whitfield for her clothing line back in the day, NeNe Leakes is officially branching into the world of fashion!

Guess the motivation to cash as many Trump checks as possible was enough for her to ignore any previous misgivings about the fashion biz, LOLz!

And lucky for our sleuthing skillz, the I Dream of NeNe star recently posted a casting call that hints at the focus of her collection. The listing reads as follows:

Kelly Osbourne Is Launching A Plus-Size Clothing Line!

kellyobeauty

Last year there were whispers that Kelly Osbourne was starting her own clothing line, and now we can confirm it's a done deal!

The former Material Girl revealed her plus-size plans at the BeautyCon Summit in El Lay last month, saying:

"I had one of the most exciting meetings of my life this week — it pretty much green-lit my clothing line!"

Not only is her name attached to the line, but the 28-year-old will also have creative control, including the ability to provide garments for all shapes and sizes:

"When I sat down in this meeting and they said, 'Yes, you have creative control and of course you can do plus size,' I was like, 'It's happening!'"

Her "quirky" but "normal" collection is still in the early stages of development, but we can't wait to see the finished products!

Melissa McCarthy Movie Poster Gets The Heat For RIDICULOUS Photoshop Treatment!

melissa mccarthy photoshop uk poster the heat

Step away from the Photoshop! This is an intervention!

Something is FOR SURE off with Melissa McCarthy on the new UK poster for The Heat!!

The HIGHlarious actress' face and neck have been VERY obviously altered to make her appear thinner.

And we just can't understand why the peculiar makeover was done!!!

Not only do we all know she doesn't look like that, but it was a completely unnecessary alteration! Seriously, photo editors?! What's wrong with you?!

Besides the fact that this is a HORRIFIC example of the impossible beauty standards across the world, we love the REAL, beautiful Melissa and we don't want our gurl's face to be modified in ANY way.

Melissa IS plus-sized and gurlfriend OWNS it, so the rest of us should too!! Don't be screwing with perfection, people!

Filed under: Oops!Fashion SmashionSad SadTargetManatee

target apologizes for manatee gray plus sized dress

Well this is just all kinds of unfortunate!

Target isn’t usually one to offend their customers, but that’s what happened when they named the color of a plus-sized dress Manatee Gray.

The standard sizing had the exact same dress color, only it was listed as Dark Heather Gray.

One offended customer posted a pic of the dress, pointing out the injustice, and it started making the Internet rounds.

Target's spokeswoman stated:
