Vogue Plusmodels front Tara Lynn, Plus Size Models Topless in Vogue Italia (photos, video)Tara Lynn, Candice Huffine, and Robyn Lawley have landed where plus-size models are rarely seen, on the cover of a major fashion magazine. They grace Vogue Italia’s July issue and appear in a stunning nude photo spread.

The feature is part of editor Franca Sozzani’s campaign against pro-anorexia Web sites and demands by major fashion houses for ultra-thin runway models.

Photographer Steven Meisel was enlisted for the feature, entitled “Real Beauties,” and stylist Edward Enninful doesn’t conceal their bodies in billowing dresses.

Instead the models pose in sexy lingerie or almost nothing at all.

“Curvy women are back in all their splendor,” said Sozzani in a statement. “The exuberance of a body with rounded lines is much more alluring and sexy.”

“A growing number of readers are now asking to see – even in fashion magazines – a real world, made of real people who are not obsessed with staying thin, but are able instead to naturally accept and respect their bodies as they are,” she added.

“Fashion has always been blamed as one of the culprits of anorexia, and our commitment is the proof that fashion is ready to get on the frontline and struggle against the disorder,” said Sozzani, who is circulating a petition to shut down anorexia Web sites.

The fashion industry has produced horror stories about models who subsist only on lettuce or eat cotton balls soaked in orange juice to stay super thin.

“Many of the women who have a few extra kilos are especially beautiful and also more feminine,” said the editor.
