Ebony Magazine shows America that curves are the new black!
For Ebony’s March 2016 issue, also known as The Body Brigade edition, featured Grammy Award winning songstress Chrisette Michelle, Orange is the New Black actress Danielle Brooks, Grammy nominated singer-songwriter Jazmine Sullivan and fashion blogger Gabi Fresh.
As controversial as its cover, the March 2016 issue discusses a wide range of precarious topics. From size acceptance to body shaming, health issues to diet. The Body Brigade edition holds no punches and addresses these topics (and so many others), head on.
Make no mistake about it, all of America isn’t completely small-minded in regards to this topic. There are many designers and brands who finally do realize that women of ALL sizes need elements to identify with. For example, Sports Illustrated recently featured their first plus size model, Ashley Graham, on their February 2016 cover. While high fashion designer, Christian Siriano, makes plans to link up with plus size fashion house, Lane Bryant to debut his new plus size collection.
With that being said, Ebony did a magnificent job of bringing this discussion to the forefront and allowing people to see plus size women in a new light. A sexy, seductive and provocative light that so many Americans didn’t think existed or were just too biased to take notice of.
BRAVO, EBONY MAGAZINE!
And, we cannot forget about the courageous tenacity of our beautiful models… Jazmine, Gabi, Chrisette and Danielle… You girls rocked the hell out of this edition!
This one’s for all of you!
