Our weight-obsessed culture has taught us that thin is in, but famous faces like Beth Ditto and Kirstie Alley prove that plus-sized people are every bit as beautiful as their thinner brethren.
These plus-sized innovations celebrate the best of big-boned beauty, from Beth Ditto’s multiple magazine covers to body painting done on curvaceous canvases. We’re hoping the clamor over Kirstie Alley’s weight gain will die down soon so that the diva can rejoin the proud ranks of the big and beautiful.
