Seventeen, Teen People, CosmoGirl! and Teen Vogue are all starting to use models that reflect women of the real world according to an associated press report.
The report states that editors from all the major fashion magazines are now seeking out plus sized models to which readers can relate. One of the models featured, Brittany Harper, was featured in a Teen People article. Harper won several beauty pageants across the US and is the current USA Eastern Miss. She told AP that “People see skinny girls in magazines and they think that’s what normal is when it’s not the case.”
