Fashion & Style News: Fox & ABC Don’t Like Big Girls!

April 28, 2010
So what, a big girl can’t be sexy?

By now you’ve heard the hoopla surrounding two major networks refusal to air a Lane Bryant commercial or perhaps you’ve seen the commercial in which a curvier (nee heavier) woman is seen prancing around in lingerie. Well let’s call a spade a spade. We all know Fox has been accused of many things, discrimination and racism included. ABC? Eh, never watched much on their station either. Quite frankly I was a little insulted by both networks blatant and insulting behavior towards women with heavier body frames.

For those who aren’t a size 2, like moi, you are basically saying to hell with you, you can’t be sexy. So is it safe to assume that every Egor looking, small penis having executive at these networks is married or cohabiting with a size 2 or less Victoria Secret-looking woman? Bulls***. I’ve seen the wives of some of these execs on the red carpet and they ain’t all pretty. Or shall we talk about those pathetic VPs and who have to “rent” dates from some local escort agency because their size 0 wife cleaned them out and took them for every dime they’ve got.

Let’s face it Rupert Murdoch, Wendy Dang dang sure ain’t with your for your looks. Hey, I wouldn’t be surprised if she was slowly slipping you rat poison in your tiramisu at Mr. Chows. With so many models suffering from body image issues you would think that America would be over the bony ass models with erected spines that look as though they are two seconds away from snapping like twigs. Media and fashion are the worst when it comes to body image, let’s not forget the Vanity Fair cover of waif then, pale-faced models as the epitome of beauty.  So now because 

What I’m more irritated about is Reebok’s new commercial showing nothing but shots of women’s derriere’s in highly…umm…racy positions. Now I have a small shapely tush but even those shots made me wince. What has the freaking world come to? Sending the message that large women can’t be sexy is an absolute crock. BOYCOTT!!

Check out the actual commercial footage below.

Fashion & Style News: Bigger is Better for Victoria’s Secret Flagship

November 11, 2009
Victoria’s Secret main sales floor in the SoHo store.

Size matters for Victoria’s Secret. The brand is getting ready to launch its newly expanded 24,000 square-foot flagship store located in SoHo. The new store replaces the old one, taking up more than five times the size of its previous space.

The bra salon.

The new Victoria’s Secret space is the result of the merging of two former retail properties that were 16,000 and 8,000 square feet respectively. The brand has also opened a similar store in Chicago to expand on its fun and flirty image. The brand’s Pink label has become quite popular with VS fans, expanding to include sportswear, accessories and gifts.

Signature pink and white stripes adorn a corner.

The SoHo store is decorated with pink and white stripes as well as solid pink. Elaborate lamp fixtures and displays are also on hand to contribute to newly revamped decorum. Victoria’s Secret has even created mini-sections within the store that include a bra salon and a panty boutique. Fitting rooms are more glamorous and now have call buttons for summoning staff.

 
The cash wrap and beauty sections.

A special treat customers will find at the Victoria’s Secret flagship is a body scanner that captures images to ensure a perfect fit. Only this store, the Chicago Michigan Avenue flagship and one other store have this technology. The brand’s fans are sure to be captured by this unique concept.

The SoHo store opened this past Friday.
