'Average Sized Models' is this the NEW NORMAL?

Valentino needs no introduction, we all do wish for its dresses, handbags, and sandals. Recently it took the fashion world by storm, as it broke the 'normal' constructs of the runway catwalk by using models of different sizes, different builds, and different ages, giving us all a new and fresh perspective. Indeed, one we needed for a long time!

Pierpaolo Piccioli said in an interview to Vogue, “In runway shows, sometimes there are 50 skinny models and one bigger-sized. I feel like you don’t really relate to that. You don’t believe that. You just tick the box". Pierpaolo Piccioli is the creative head at Valentino. What he said is the sad reality of our world, the myth of an IDEAL BODY TYPE!


Supermodel Kristen McMenamy opened the show in a seductive black cocktail dress with thigh-high stockings and leather gloves. What do we call it? Sexy!

Pierpaolo Piccioli offered so much more than the regular runway shows we have seen earlier. A welcome change against BODY SHAMING and BODY Ideals!

Hope these sorts of changes happen more often in the fashion world.
