Katie Grand has always championed that beauty comes in all sizes, great and small. And for her latest issue of bi-annual magazine LOVE, she upholds this belief with eight separate covers of naked fashion icons. Kate Moss, Lara Stone, Daria Werbowy, Naomi Campbell, Natalia Vodianova, Kristen McMenamy and Jeniel Williams stripped down to pose for the publication, all striking the same stance. Grand explained, "We did this to show how much they differed physically from one another, which is why we also printed their measurements. The point is that 'perfection' is not fixed, timeless or transcendent. It varies, as the measurements of our cover girls show." But do they really vary that much? This is something we've been questioning since the release of all the covers. And to the naked eye, no, they don't appear to.
Apparently lots of people have been pondering the same thing. In a Jezebel article on the same topic, they concluded that beauty does vary--a whole two inches! A commenter took it even further, layering all eight covers to see the differences for herself. We've posted a picture of the result. And as we suspected, the difference is slight. Katie's put curvy women on her magazines before, so why didn't she do it again? Especially when this particular issue's theme is the varying sizes of perfection, and she's been so outspoken about each model's physical differences.
