NPR logo SIZE is an ISSUE


The latest issue of V Magazine features women of different sizes and shapes wearing designer clothes such as Versace and Dolce and Gabbana. Weekend Edition speaks with one of the first curvy models to be featured in high-end fashion magazines, Emme, along with V features editor Christopher Bartley in an interview Sunday with Liane Hansen. They raise an important question: do high-end fashion magazines fuel unnatural and unhealthy desires to become super-thin, like the size 0 models on the pages of their magazines? We'd like to hear your thoughts.
