Laura Catterall on Cosmopolitan, Kaela Humphries Signed Up (& More!)

By on March 8, 2012

This week has so far been a pretty active one in the plus size industry, with various events and happenings going on. Here’s my take on some of the latest news, and updates from our favorite stores.

Laura Catterall Graces The Cover of Cosmopolitan

I were extremely happy to see gorgeous Laura Catterall, a plus size model, grace the cover of the French edition of Cosmopolitan (April, 2012 edition). Is it just me, or do I notice more coverage of plus size women and models in general in European magazines when compared to the US? This is the trend I’m noticing, which is suprising to me since the ‘plus size fashion’ market is much wider in the US… in the terms of clothing availability. As a plus size woman living in Europe, but having visited and shopped around various cities in the US, it’s obivous to me that curvy women Stateside have much more options, and seem to be much more represented in retail, but not in magazines. Hopefully this will continue to change in 2012.
