French women are notorious for being skinny (the red wine?), but they clearly "get" curves.
Just check out French Elle, which today launched its April issue devoted to plus-size women, Runway Revolution reports.
Inside, the size 16 Lynn rocks her curves in a sexy swimsuit and figure-flattering frocks for the lengthy editorial photographed by David Oldham.
This isn't the first time the fashion magazine has gone against convention. Last April they featured a bevy of beauties sans makeup and retouching.
But on this side of the Atlantic, our sister site PopEater reports that Vogue would allegedly never consider including plus-size starlet Gabourey Sidibe within its pages because of her large size.
Maybe it's time for Anna Wintour to book it to Paris for a course in "getting real," Gallic-style?
Meanwhile, read about a new study claiming curvy models in ads cause low self-esteem.
