Here’s a head scratcher: when this video commissioned by Vogue Italia for Princess Cornflakes arrived in our inbox this morning, it was described as a film for “a line of plus sized-clothes.” Firstly, we’d like to point out that there are no plus sized clothes, nor plus sized models to be seen in this video. Secondly, we retch at the distinction “plus sized.” Come on, fashion; it’s time to step into the future. It’s time to stop describing anything vaguely meatier than anorexic as “plus sized”, or “fatshion” or whatever other ridiculous vernacular has been dreamed up to fat shame regular women.

It’s time to end these arbitrary, reductive distinctions and just let women be women, regardless of their dress size. The only rule that says a size 0 is more attractive than any other size was created by industry assholes with more style than sense; so we say fuck the rules, everyone is beautiful. Stop force feeding us these nauseatingly anachronistic ideas of beauty and let heroin chic die with the 90s. It’s time to drop the toxic assertion that super-thin models are somehow “plus sized” when in reality, they’re far slimmer than a general majority of women consuming the publications they’re featured in.

Anyway… rant aside, Antoine Asseraf and Rene Habermacher have made a cute little video on behalf of Vogue Italia for Princess Cornflakes, featuring, obviously, two incredibly thin models (who are no less stunning than any women bigger or smaller than them, it’s just safer to acknowledge that they posses a body ideal unattainable to most). Ironically, given the size issue, the narrative of the video highlights, in irreverent humor, the superficiality of the aesthetic dreams of little girls. The tongue in cheek portrayal of two little girls who just want to grow up to be big and fashionable, with men quite literally at their feet (as they confuse advice given to them by their cousin), is an adorable commentary on ingrained social expectations. But hey… we’re educated, empowered women now, and we still want those big wardrobes…
