Vivienne Westwood's Beef



Vivenne Westwood walked a heavier male model down her recent men's show in Milan in a move away from the thinner EMO looking models that have held prominence on all men's fashion show runways over the past few years. I applaud Vivenne Westwood for making this bold move in helping to re-define male beauty and helping to challenge the socially constructed myth that thin and skinny is the only fashionable body type. It could be viewed as a publicity stunt, but ultimately she has challenged us to think and possibly made some people uncomfortable - the groundworks to all social change.

Yay to Vivienne Westwood and her beef!
